For a twist on a classic chocolate fondue, I used Granville Island Brewing's Lions Winter Ale. The Ale itself has layers of vanilla, cocoa, and caramel which of course pairs beautifully with silky chocolate. This fondue offers just a hint of beer, winter spices and of course chocolate.

chocolate fondue recipe

Yields1 Serving
Prep Time10 minsCook Time10 minsTotal Time20 mins

 ¾ cup Bottle of Lion's Winter Ale
 ¼ cup Whole Milk
 300 g Milk Chocolate (Use a good quality chocolate for the best results. I used Lindt), Chopped
 200 g Dark Chocolate ( I used 70% Lindt)
 1 tsp Cinnamon
 ½ tsp Cardamom
 ½ tsp Allspice
 1 tbsp Butter

1

In a saucepan over medium-low heat, whisk the ale and milk together.

2

When liquid is hot, turn burner to low and add the chopped chocolate. Whisk until combined and the fondue is smooth.

3

Remove from heat, add butter.

4

Add spices and combine.

5

Pour into fondue pot. I love my Electric fondue pot from Stokes, it's much easier than worrying about a flame and you can control the temperature!

6

Serve with your favourite fruit, cake and cookies for dipping.

Hi Maria! Thanks for catching this! I'll add it now. For the record, it's just one tablespoon of butter :)

Your ingredient list does not include the butter that your #3 instructions asks for. Can you edit this recipe, please? It sounds like a really interesting flavour combination. Thanks.
