Flaming Turtle Chocolate Fondue Recipe

User Rating 3 Star Rating (1 Review)


Here is the perfect dish for any romantic occasion with your loved one. Chocolate caramel nut fondue is flamed with rum before serving with skewered fruit, marshmallows, and pound cake or cheesecake.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 25 minutes


  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup milk chocolate
  • 1/4 cup caramel syrup
  • 2 Tbsp pecans, chopped
  • 2 Tbsp rum, 151-proof for flambé
  • .
  • For the Dipping Basket:
  • Fruit, cut (strawberries, bananas and pineapple)
  • Marshmallows
  • Cake, cubed (pound cake and cheesecake)


Soften milk chocolate in the microwave. Heat milk in the fondue pot. Once it's hot, add softened chocolate. Stir until you have a smooth consistency. Pour caramel into a pool in the middle of the chocolate. When it's time to serve, pour the rum over the top of the chocolate. Leave a small amount on the spoon to ignite with a lighter. Use flaming spoon to ignite the rum on the chocolate. Add the chopped pecans to the chocolate. Allow the flame to burn out.

Note: All dipping items should be skewered and dipped in the chocolate. Be careful as you reach the sides and bottom of the fondue pot; the chocolate tends to be hotter there.

Yield: 2 servings

needs some tweaking, Member celine77

The recipe calls for milk, but you need to use whipping cream. Milk is too runny. And be sure the rum you use is 151-proof! I used regular Bacardi and it took forever to light and then went out before burning off all the liquor. I had to throw the batch out because it tasted like rum! I will try it again though, just leaving out the alcohol and using whipping cream.
