For those who love peanut butter, what better idea than to pair it with chocolate in a fondue? To prevent separating, use a standard commercial peanut butter. Creamy is recommended for a smooth fondue coating. Even though there is salt in the peanut butter, a little extra is added to balance the sweetness of the chocolate. Because this fondue is a little thicker than some, sturdier dippers are a good idea: try chewy brownies cut into small squares, shortbread cookies, pretzel sticks, biscotti, banana chunks, apple wedges, and orange segments.–Peggy Fallon

Recipe Testers Reviews
I served this fondue at a party, and it was very well received. Several asked for the recipe. I loved it—but then how can you go wrong with peanut butter and chocolate? It’s very easy fondue to make. I’ll definitely make this again.
This peanut butter fondue is simple, and it’s so good it’s bad. It could have been half this delicious, and I still wouldn’t have been able to stay out of it. The ingredients are easy to find and just as easy to throw together for a party or drop-in guests.
