Lightened Up Vegan Chocolate Fondue

Vegan Chocolate Fondue –

I was completely convinced Kate Middleton would have a girl.

There’s a recipe called “Pink Princess Cake” going in my cookbook that I decided to take out and post today… or really last week because I guessed the baby would be born July 14th. Obviously I have no future as a psychic.

Or a gambler.

Seeing as I’m already 0 for 2, I’m not even going to try! According to UK betting agents, George and James are frontrunners, with Henry and Alexander close behind.

Scarily enough, some people actually put money down on the names Voldemort and Snape. 😕

Luckily, no special skills in divination are required to make a rich chocolate fondue perfect for celebrating any occasion. All you need is chocolate.

And luckily, I just so happen to have a very large supply of chocolate!

This is a lightened-up recipe for traditional chocolate fondue.

The heavy cream, margarine, and corn syrup called for in many versions of the recipe have been omitted, and I’ve combined three different types of chocolate, just enough milk, and a pinch of salt and vanilla extract in such a way that the final product maintains the same richness and creaminess of the original.

Lightened-Up Vegan Chocolate Fondue

  • 3/4 cup milk of choice (180g)
  • 2 tbsp cacao or cocoa powder (10g)
  • 5 oz semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 5 oz chopped dark chocolate (or 5oz more chocolate chips)
  • scant 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • optional: 1/2 tbsp amaretto (omit the vanilla extract if using)

Whisk milk of choice, cocoa, and salt in a small saucepan. Bring to boil. Once it boils, lower to LOW and add all of the chocolate. Stir until the chocolate melts and is completely creamy, with no lumps (about 2-3 minutes). Turn off the heat and stir in the vanilla extract or amaretto. Transfer to a fondue pot or serving dish. Serve with sliced fruit, graham crackers, or anything you think would taste better with a coating of chocolate. (Read: everything!)

    Oh…. my…. goodness…. that looks heavenly! I’m totally going to need to make sure I have all of the ingredients on my next shopping list. YUM!

    Dreamy chocolate fondue…yup, the name sold me before I even looked! Who doesn’t love fondue, seriously? In my mind it’s more than worth it because it encourages you to have more fruit haha – bananas and strawberries are my absolute favourite with chocolate. I’m obsessed with sea salt chocolate right now too, so I would totally sprinkle some salt over the top!

    Hi, I love your blog. I started searching for recipes where I could enjoy the good antioxidant parts of chocolates. I found your site and loved it. On top of that this particular recipe is of interest as I am vegetarian. I wish you had a +1 or facebook like button which I could share this with some of my vegetarian friends. I guess I will have to do it the long way. Anyways liked your page on facebook- keep up the good work. Cheers!

    Hello!! I just wanted to say that I have tried almost all of your recipes and they are delishious!! I was hoping that maybe you could post somemore pancake recipes maybe?! That would be great! Thanks for everything you do!

  5. Kathryn @ Illustrated Nutrition says

    I thought Kate would have a girl too! I just felt like it was so natural for her to have a girl because she is so beautiful and fashionable that she couldn’t possibly have a boy. Anyways, enough about the baby because this chocolate fondue looks incredible! Thanks for the healthier version to a normally very unhealthy recipe. Love your website!

    Hello! My name is Jess, and I run a food blog called Floptimism where every week I write a post called “Weekend Wrap Up.” Basically, it’s where I highlight some of my favorite web finds from the past week to share with my readers. (I’ve included your posts before so I know I’ve commented, but I’m also sure you get tons of comments and may not remember.) Anyway, I loved this fondue recipe so much that I featured it on this week’s wrap-up, and wanted to let you know. Thank you for such a great idea and blog post! I’ve included the link below in case you’re interested. I hope you had a great weekend!

    You know, your fondue recipe makes an amazing filling for truffles once you let it cool and sit for a while! Delicious!

    Thanks for sharing! This was a hit with our guests and with my 9-year old son who now is following a gf/df/egg-free diet. Woo-hoo!
