vegan chocolate fondue recipe!

Seeing as Valentine’s day is coming up, I thought I’d add a somewhat romantic dessert to my blog.

Vegan chocolate fondue is perfect for sharing with that special someone, whether that’s your partner, friend, or favourite family member.

I love this recipe because it’s so quick and easy, and it’s actually quite healthy too!

All you need is some high quality dark chocolate and some coconut milk. Melt them together over a low heat and viola! The perfect vegan chocolate fondue, filled with lots of healthy fats.

And since the basic recipe is so healthy, you have more room to indulge on your dippers. Some of my favourites are dairy-free fudge and vegan marshmallows.

You can of course, keep your dippers healthy too for a totally nutritious yet indulgent dessert. Check out my complete list of dipping ideas further on in this post if you’re in need of some inspiration.

How To Make Vegan Chocolate Fondue

Because traditional chocolate fondue is make from dairy cream and milk chocolate, I had to switch things up a little bit.

By simply changing the dairy cream to full-fat coconut milk and the milk chocolate to dark, I was able to whip up a dairy-free fondue in no time. Check out my vegan chocolate guide for more information about dark chocolate.

Don’t worry if you’re not a fan of the coconut taste because the powerful flavour of the dark chocolate does a great job at covering that up.

Step 1:

To get started with this super easy recipe, pour some coconut milk into a pan over medium-low heat.

I like to use full-fat coconut milk because it helps to give a great thick and creamy fondue. But light coconut milk will work too if you’d prefer to use that.

Step 2:

After a few minutes of the coconut milk being on the heat, little bubbles should be starting to form around the edges. When this happens, it’s time to add the chocolate.

I recommend dark chocolate with at least 60% cocoa for best results. This not only enhances the rich flavour but also stays “wet” and creamy for a lot longer. I’ve found that the cheaper, low-quality chocolate sometimes clumps up after a while.

My personal favourite is the 74% cocoa dark chocolate from Tesco. It’s creamy and rich but also has a bit of sweetness and isn’t super bitter.

Step 3:

Stir continuously until the dark chocolate has completely melted into the coconut milk, then transfer it into a fondue pot.

If you don’t have a proper fondue kit, you can either transfer the fondue to a slow cooker or simply keep the pot on the hob, on a very low heat. And to dip, you can just use a regular fork or skewer.

Now it’s time to choose what to dip!

What To Dip In Vegan Chocolate Fondue?

Before going vegan, I didn’t put too much effort into my chocolate fondue ideas. I basically just dipped anything I wanted.

But of course, being a vegan isn’t always quite as simple! I had to do a bit more thinking this time.

To help you out, I’ve compiled a list of my favourite vegan-friendly fondue dipping ideas. When testing this recipe, I used these 5 things to dip into my vegan fondue:

20 Vegan Chocolate Fondue Dipping Ideas

Unfortunately, my little tum can only hold so much food, so I didn’t get to try ALL of the vegan fondue dipping ideas below. I guess I’ll just need to make more fondue next Valentine’s day!

Biscuits and cookies

The cheaper versions of these cookies/biscuits are more likely to be made without milk or eggs and are therefore more likely to be vegan-friendly. Be sure to double check though, as different brands will vary from country to country.

  • Oreos
  • Shortbread 
  • Pink Wafers
  • Rich Tea biscuits
  • Digestives
  • Bourbon biscuits
  • Ginger nuts / Gingersnaps
  • Biscoff cookies


  • Strawberries
  • Cherries
  • Bananas
  • Apple slices
  • Mandarin segments
  • Dried fruit
  • Nuts (I think hazelnuts and pistachios go particularly well with chocolate fondue)
  • Popcorn


Bonus tip for leftover Chocolate Fondue!

If you happen to have any leftover fondue, don’t throw it away. You can actually turn it into healthy chocolate truffles!

All you need to do is transfer the mixture into a bowl or container and wait for it to cool down completely. Then place it in the fridge overnight. It should become firm and malleable.

In the morning, just roll the mixture into small, bite-sized balls and you’ve got some creamy vegan truffles. Check out vegan chocolate truffles post for decorating ideas.
