"Melting Pot" Chocolate Peanut Butter Fondue

One of my favorite indulgences is dinner at The Melting Pot.  The Melting Pot is a fondue restaurant, and while I am not wild about the meat course of the meal, the cheese and chocolate courses are to die for. My favorite chocolate selection is “The Original” which is is a milk chocolate fondue, swirled with crunch peanut butter. They serve you things like pound cake, cheesecake, brownies, bananas, strawberries, and marshmallows to dip in it.  So, so yummy.

A good friend of ours had a birthday last week, and after a scrumptious Chinese Dinner at Seattle’s Snappy Dragon restaurant (BEST Chinese ever, by the way), we went back to our house for some chocolate fondue to celebrate Robyn’s 25th year! 😉

It was super easy to whip this up in about 5 minutes, and while I put mine in a fondue pot, reviews I read said that the chocolate stays melty even if you just put it in a bowl, so give that a try even if you don’t own a fondue pot.  I served this with cubes of brownies, pound cake, strawberries, bananas, and Nutter Butter cookies.

Excuse the crappy Instagram photos, it was 11pm and I didn’t have any natural light to work with. 🙂



1 cup (6 ounces) milk chocolate chips
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup half and half
1/2 cup crunchy peanut butter

Dipping items, I used brownies, pound cake, strawberries, bananas, and Nutter Butter cookies.

In a heavy saucepan, cook and stir the chocolate chips, sugar, half and half, and peanut butter over low heat until smooth. Transfer to a fondue pot and keep warm.

Recipe makes enough for 4-6 people

  1. Been making this for every New Years Eve since 2014. It is one of our favorite traditions. We double (& sometimes triple) the recipe, especially when friends come. Tons of fruit and different carb-y delights, like toasted lady fingers, squares of Rice Krispie treats, and Nutter Butter cookies is how we roll.

    I figured it was high time to leave a thank you in your comments section!! Happy 2022 to you and yours, from me & mine ^_^
