Do you need a great dessert for your next party? Give this flaming turtle chocolate fondue a try and wow your guests with your mad cooking skills. It’s easy to make and only required a handful of ingredients. You might even have everything you need. I know was only missing the heavy cream.

You’ll need a fondue pot, there are a variety of options available at Amazon to fit every budget. Additionally, you’ll need fondue forks or long toothpicks, either one works fine.Photo of Flaming Turtle Chocolate Fondue in a pot.

Don’t have a fondue pot and no time to order one. This recipe can be made in a saucepan on the stove, but you may need to gently reheat if it cools too much. Either way, fondue pot or stove top, you’re going to want to take a bite of this chocolate fondue goodness!

Selecting great food bites to dip in the chocolate fondue is my favorite part.  Here are a few of my favorites to include:

  • Pound cake
  • Strawberries
  • Raspberries
  • Pretzels
  • Marshmallows
  • Vanilla wafers
  • Brownie bites
  • Cheesecake
  • Rice Krispie treats



*   12 ounces milk chocolate, finely chopped
*   2 tablespoons heavy cream
*   1/4 cup caramel ice cream topping
*   1 tablespoon 151 rum
*   3 tablespoons chopped pecans


Combine the chocolate and cream in the top of a double boiler set over simmering water. Heat until the chocolate is melted, stirring constantly; or combine the chocolate and cream in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave until melted, stirring every 30-45 seconds.

Be careful not to let the chocolate burn. Pour into a warm fondue pot.

Pour the caramel into the center of the chocolate mixture. Do not stir.

Add the rum to the pot and ignite carefully, using a long wooden match or lighter. Allow the flame to burn out and stir gently to combine.

Sprinkle with the pecans.

Keep fondue warm over low heat.

Serves 4 to 6.
