What to Serve with Your Quick and Easy Chocolate Fondue

To truly savour the rich and creamy indulgence of a Chocolate Fondue, you’ll want to choose the perfect accompaniments. The most common and delicious options include fresh fruit like bananas, apples, oranges, pineapple, and berries, which complement the sweet flavour of the chocolate. You can also serve marshmallows, graham crackers, bits of sponge cake, brownies, or brioche bread for a contrasting texture. To ensure easy dipping, it’s best to cut the fruit and cakes into small, bite-sized pieces.

It’s important to strike a balance when providing accompaniments, as offering too much variety can lead to unnecessary waste. A good rule of thumb for a chocolate fondue is to plan for eight to ten bites per person, whereas oil or cheese fondues served as a meal would require 18 to 20 bites per guest. These estimates should ensure that everyone has plenty to enjoy without leaving too much leftover food to store away in the fridge.
