• Difficulty Easy

Boozy chocolate & cherry fondue

Serves: 8-10p Prep: 15m Cook: 65m


  • 300 millilitre single cream
  • 300 millilitre double cream
  • 50 gram dried sour cherries, chopped
  • a splash of cherry brandy
  • 300 gram good-quality dark chocolate (70% cocoa solids)


Make sure the stirrer attachment is in place in the pan, then set the temperature to 130°C and immediately pour in all the cream and brandy, and add the sour cherries. Set the timer for 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, smash the chocolate up into small chunks and prepare all your delicious bites for dipping (see my tip, left). When the time’s up, add the chocolate and set the timer for 2 minutes, so it can melt.

Turn the HomeCooker off, remove the pan and the stirrer attachment. To finish off, mix the fondue with a spoon until well combined, then pour into a serving bowl or divide between individual cups and get dipping!

Jamie Oliver’s tip

The sky’s the limit when it comes to choosing what to dip in your fondue – just have fun with it. Try everything from griddled soldiers of panettone or brioche, to segments of clementine or slices of banana. Fresh strawberries and cherries always work a treat too.


“In the HomeCooker recipe book we’ve created, there’s a whole list of beautiful, exclusive recipes that can be enjoyed as breakfast, lunch or dinner – from vegetable dishes, curries, sauces, pasta, casseroles, risottos… the list goes on and on.” Jamie Oliver.

  • I don’t like sour cherries or brandy. I actually would prefer just the fresh beautiful fruit without dipping them in chocolate


  • I love jamie and his cooking


  • I love jamie oliver’s recipes.


  • Yes please!


  • Not the biggest fan of Cherry flavoured chocolate so I don’t think I’ll try this.
    Maybe if there’s an alternative like orange, that would be good.


  • Too much of a good thing at the moment – think I’ll pass till a later date.


  • A nice way indeed to use up our left over cherries but in saying and thinking about that seriously I feel we have had enough chocolate this festive season.
