Chocolate and Coconut Cream Fondue

"I got this from to serve at a fondue party I hosted. This was, by far, everyone's favorite fondue...and has since then been served when my guests had fondue parties of their own. Note - cream of coconut is not quite the same thing as coconut milk. I can usually find it in the alcoholic beverage section of the grocery store, with the other mixers."

Ready In:




  • Combine the sweetened cream of coconut and 12 ounces of chocolate in a heavy large saucepan. Stir the mixture over very low heat until the mixture is smooth.
  • Stir in the whipping cream and extract.
  • Transfer the mixture to the fondue pot. Place over a candle or canned heat burner, and serve with fruit.
  • You can prepare this 8 hours ahead of time - just cover it and store at room temperature, and rewarm it before serving.

    Yum! Incredibly good and super easy. Chocolate is still the predominant flavor, the coconut is not overpowering. Smooth and just the right thickness. Used Ghiradelli semisweet chocolate bars, prepared in a 1-quart crockpot. For dippers, used biscotti, pound cake cubes, frozen cheesecake cubes, whole strawberries, fresh pineapple chunks, banana, apple slices, marshmallows, vanilla wafers, and honey wheat pretzels. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

    Fabulous with fruit! This is my daughter's all time favorite fondue


I wandered onto Recipezaar less than a year ago, looking for a lentil soup recipe. I'm pretty sure I haven't left the computer since then...I've been completely sucked in by this site! Of course, I do take the occasional break to actually cook the recipes I find. When I'm not at my computer or in the kitchen, I'm working toward my PhD in clinical psychology from Kent State. I also work as a therapist at the campus clinic, teach a class (Social Psychology this semester), and work as a research assistant. I'm a little bit busy. I do usually find time every day to cook something for myself with the help of this site, and to exercise (to counteract the effects of the great recipes I find here). I don't have much time in my life for hobbies at the moment (sigh), but I seem to recall that I used to like reading, going to see musical performances, and watching movies. I still do my best to travel as much as possible. My sister, Kate, my boyfriend, Jake, and my friend, Kris, are my favorite travel partners. Kate and I go on an "eatacation" every year.
