Recipe: Kalamazoo Stout Chocolate Fondue

Rich and chocolatey, Kalamazoo Stout is available year-round.

This twist on chocolate fondue is a delicious treat to serve at your next gathering, but we get it if you'd rather save it all for yourself. 


  • 16 oz. semisweet chocolate
  • 4 oz. Kalamazoo Stout (1/3 of a bottle... drink the rest!)
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup coffee
  • 2 TBS unsalted butter

For dipping we suggest:

  • Crusty bread
  • Fruit: strawberries, oranges, bananas
  • Sharp cheddar
  • Pretzels
  • Marshmallows
  • Shortbread cookies

In the kitchen

  • In a medium sauce pan, bring heavy cream, Kalamazoo Stout, and coffee to a high simmer.
  • Break chocolate apart and put into a heat-proof bowl, pour hot cream and stout mixture over the chocolate.
  • Let the mixture sit on the chocolate for a few minutes (allowing the heat to melt the chocolate), and then whisk it together until fully incorporated. Add the butter and continue to whisk.
  • If you have a fondue pot, you can keep it warm in the fondue pot. If not, keep the pan on the stove on low heat until ready to eat.
