Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. And even though I’m a firm believer that we should treat every day like it’s Valentine’s Day and show love to the people in our lives always, I do think it’s fun to get extra mushy one day out of the year.

When it comes to celebrating, it’s a well-known fact that the combination of chocolate & peanut butter is my love language. You can keep your fancy gifts…give me a sweet treat where these two ingredients are the stars and I will gladly be your Valentine. xoxo

So to celebrate in true Laura fashion, I made us some Dairy-Free Chocolate Peanut Butter Fondue! This recipe is amazing on so many levels I am not even sure where to begin. So, how about we start with the fact that it’s dairy-free and vegan! This means it can be enjoyed by even those of you who, {like me} can’t hop on the dairy train without serious repercussions. 😉

Next, can we dish about the flavor?! This velvety smooth pool of rich, creamy chocolate has subtle but satisfying notes of peanut butter in every insanely delicious bite. It is SO good that you will want to savor it down to the very last drop. Everyone in my family absolutely loved grabbing a fondue fork and diving right in!

 Dairy-Free Chocolate Peanut Butter Fondue: Method 

This recipe couldn’t be any simpler! Simply pour your ingredients in a saucepan, warm, whisk and enjoy! Here are a few tips to help ensure your success!

Use the entire can of coconut cream. The solid portion of the can will melt with the rest of the ingredients as it is warmed! You need both the solid and liquid portions of the cream for this recipe!

Whisk! Don’t let the mixture sit on the warm burner for too long, or the bottom could burn! Be sure to whisk constantly!

Storage. Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Simply scoop out the portion you would like to eat and warm it in the microwave or on the stovetop! I also may have used leftovers to frost a couple brownies…and it might have been incredibly delicious! 🙂

 Dairy-Free Chocolate Peanut Butter Fondue: Substitutions 

While I can’t, in good conscience, recommend that you tamper with this recipe at all, here are a few potential substitutions!

Coconut cream. I really do not recommend any dairy-free substitutions for coconut cream because it is critical to the irresistibly creamy texture of this fondue! You could use full-fat coconut milk, but it will be a little less creamy so beware. If you don’t mind the dairy, heavy whipping cream and whole milk also work well in this recipe!

Chocolate chips. Any chocolate bar or chip will work well in this recipe! I recommend a variety that’s between 60-72% dark for the ultimate chocolate flavor. However, feel free to choose your favorite variety! Both Enjoy Life Foods and Sunspire Chocolate make chips that are certified dairy-free!

Granulated sugar. I recommend organic cane sugar here, but any granulated variety should work well. Use coconut sugar for a refined sugar free option! I do not recommend using calorie-free sweeteners, as I do not use them and cannot guarantee results!

I have said it before and I’ll say it again, I L-O-V-E Crazy Richard’s peanut butter. It’s silky smooth, ultra creamy and is made with only one ingredient….peanuts! If you haven’t tried it yet what are you waiting for?! You can order it online or find it in just about any store {Sprouts, WalMart, Smith’s, Harmons, etc. etc. etc.}! Since we eat it by the spoonful {no joke}, buying a high-quality variety is super important to me, which is why I’m a true-blue Crazy Richards fan! 🙂

On another note, one of the reasons I enjoy this Dairy-Free Chocolate Peanut Butter Fondue so much is because it’s slightly nostalgic for me! You see, one of the best dates Ritch and I ever went on was at a fondue restaurant! We only had Bethany {wow} and hadn’t been on a date for a while. The whole experience of getting to sit in a booth for two hours, slowly enjoying our food while we chatted the night away was magical. We, of course, ended that meal with a chocolate & peanut butter fondue, and I filed it away in the recesses of my brain in the “must-make my own version of this” recipe folder. So here I am, some odd years later sharing this glorious recipe with all of you, so you too can experience the chocolate peanut butter love this Valentine’s Day!

What are you making for Valentine’s Day this year? How do you celebrate?!
