Toffee Fondue

1 (14 ounce) pkg Kraft caramels
1/4 c milk
1/4 c strong black coffee*
1/2 c milk chocolate chips, opt.

apple wedges
banana chunks
mini pretzels, or pretzel snaps
angel food cake, cut in 1 inch cubes

Place caramels, milk, coffee, and chocolate chips in top of double boiler. Cook over boiling water, stirring until melted and blended. Place in fondue pot on low.

  • *As this was all melting I could see that it was going to turn out to be too thin so I scooped off a bunch of liquid. Good call as it was definitely on the thin side when completed. It might be better to skip the liquid coffee and just add a little instant coffee instead.
  • The caramel/coffee/chocolate flavors were good together, but a good option to unwrapping all those tedious caramels might be to just buy a 14 ounce jar of caramel ice cream topping, add about 1/2 tsp. of instant coffee granules, and the chocolate. Heat a bit and add a little milk or cream to make it the desired consistency.
  • I doubled this recipe for my HS mom party on 1-22-11.
