We have used the historical flavours of our hot chocolates to create some delicious dipping chocolate for using as chocolate fondue, or just melting in a microwave oven. Dip your favourite foods into the suculent chocolate. We suggest: strawberries, raspberries, banana, pretzels, salted nuts, and marshmallows.


This chocolate recipe is based upon Antonio de Ledesma’s 1685 medicinal recipe for chocolate. Newly arrived from Central America, chocolate was only consumed as a drink, and this is one of the earliest European recipes. The Aztec chilli is still used, combined with the flavour of orange flower and other spices.

1685 Dipping Chocolate

  • Shake the bag well if you are not using the entire pack. The ingredients will settle in the bag. Fill your fondue bowl with chocolate.

    Microwave: heat on medium or full power in bursts of 10-15 seconds, stiring in between.

    Over a candle: the chocolate should melt within 5-10 minutes.

    When the chocolate has melted, use the forks to dip fruit or other foods into the chocolate.
