Valentine’s Day Dessert Board with Chocolate Fondue Recipe

valentine's day chocolate fondue board

This chocolate fondue board is created by Olivia Carney of That Charcuterie Chick. Learn how to make milk chocolate and white chocolate fondue, then serve them up with your favorite Harry & David fruit and Valentine’s treats!

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, and I have all the sweet, chocolatey, heart-shaped inspiration you need for your February 14 celebration—a chocolate fondue board! It’s the perfect treat to surprise your partner with during your Valentine’s weekend at home. It also has enough treats to share with your besties at your Galentine’s Day party.

I made two fondues for this board, white chocolate and milk chocolate (my personal favorite), because why not go big for Valentine’s Day? Then I filled the board up with all kinds of goodies for dipping. I started with no-fuss items that you can put on the board as is. Harry & David’s Valentine’s treats like cookies and mini donuts are a great place to start. Why not add in extra chocolate too with Shari’s dipped strawberries? None of these require preparation, so they’re ready to enjoy as soon as your eyes meet the board!

The rest of the items require a bit of work—if dipping your favorite fruits into warm, melty chocolate is considered work, that is (I think not!). My favorites are Harry & David’s cute XOXO apples, bananas, and cherries. Adding a touch of salt can go a long way and provides contrast to make the chocolate even sweeter. I like to include salted pretzels since they include a crunchy component, which also balances out the addition of decadent cake bites.

The best part of a chocolate fondue board is that you can’t go wrong with whatever snacks you include. Use only fruit, throw in some of your favorite nuts like pecans, skip the pretzels in favor of more donuts, it’s entirely up to you! Valentine’s Day is about treating yourself and your loved ones, so make the board up just how you like. Depending on who you’re celebrating with, you can also whip up these cherry martinis or Galentine’s Day cocktails. And if you’re entertaining the kids or treating yourself to a quiet evening in, you can print out these Valentine’s cards and coloring pages, since crafting always goes better with snacks. Happy Valentine’s Day!
