Several years ago I hosted a cocktail party and served dessert fondue as an interactive treat for guests. There’s something so fun and unique about dessert fondue that you just don’t get when you serve a cake or pie. This is the recipe I used and it turns the traditional flavor of cheesecake into a melted dipping sauce.
Perhaps the most enjoyable part of this cheesecake fondue recipe is all the options for dippers. Serve it on a dessert fondue platter with chocolate fondue like I did for date night and the possibilities are endless! Anything that relates to cheesecake would be terrific.
While this is a recipe for hot fondue, the chilled version is actually just as tasty. Leftovers don’t go to waste when you take them right out of the refrigerator and place them next to fruit or cookies for scooping.
- Heavy whipping cream
- Cream cheese
How to Make It
- Heat the cream in a saucepot and then add the cream cheese so it melts. Cut the cream cheese into 1-inch pieces so it melts easily.
- Add sugar and spices and continue to heat until everything is well blended and smooth.
- Pour into a fondue pot or mini slow cooker to stay warm.
