Fondue originated in Switzerland as a way to use hardened cheese and stale bread in the winter months. Today, it takes on many different forms, including dessert! This chocolate hazelnut fondue is a form of fondue au chocolat, or chocolate fondue, and is perfect for a group of party-goers. Chocolate hazelnut spread lends a rich flavor and brings it to the next level. Serve it with a bunch of dipping options, and everyone will get the perfectly sweet bite that they want. The possibilities are endless.


Strawberry Cream Cheese Toast Sticks:


  1. Whisk together the cream and sugar in a medium saucepan over low heat. When the cream is hot but not boiling, add the chocolate chips and gently whisk until combined and smooth. Add the chocolate hazelnut spread to the cream mixture and whisk until smooth. Serve immediately with your desired dippers. If the fondue breaks, whisk in a couple of tablespoons of cold heavy cream at a time.

Strawberry Cream Cheese Toast Sticks:

Yield: 16 sticks
  1. Preheat a griddle or panini press to medium-low heat.
  2. Lay out the slices of bread on a clean work surface. Spread one side of each slice with the cream cheese. Evenly top four of the slices with the sliced strawberries. Top each with the remaining four bread slices, cream cheese-side down, to make four sandwiches. Spread the outside of each sandwich with the butter and sprinkle with the cinnamon sugar.
  3. Place the sandwiches on the griddle or panini press and cook until golden brown and toasted, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Let cool for a few minutes, then slice each sandwich into 4 sticks.
