White Chocolate Fondue Recipe
Use top-quality white chocolate bars. See our article on the best white chocolate. One of the most readily available (you can find it at Whole Foods Markets) and popularly-priced is Green & Black’s.
- 1 cup heavy whipping cream (reserve 1/4 cup to thin if the fondue begins to thicken)
- 1 pound white chocolate, chopped
- 2 tablespoons Frangelico or Grand Marnier (or other orange liqueur) (optional)
- 1/4 cup finely-chopped nuts such as hazelnuts, pistachios or almonds (optional)
Some of the world’s best white chocolate:
Vosges, El Rey, Green & Black’s, Caffe Tasse and Chocovic.
- Heat 3/4 cup cream in a heavy non-reactive saucepan or in double-boiler over moderate heat, until the cream comes to a simmer.
- Remove the pan from the heat and add the chocolate. Let the chocolate stand in the hot cream 3 minutes to soften, then whisk the chocolate together until smooth.
- Stir in the liqueur and/or chopped nuts and transfer the fondue to a fondue pot. If you don’t have a fondue pot or a brazier, use a ceramic bowl on a rack above a lit votive or tea candle.
- If the fondue becomes too thick, stir in the reserved cream, 1 tablespoon at a time, to the desired consistency.
