fondue fun

We totally splurged on Easter dessert.  I guess we felt like we hadn't got our quota of chocolate eggs, so we had chocolate fondue after dinner.  Using this recipe, the chocolate was ready in a matter of minutes.  We kept it warm in a circa 1970 fondue pot [complete with Sterno cooking fuel] that my mother-in-law brought over. 

Long forks in hand.....we dove in!   Our dipping choices were pound cake, bananas, marshmallows, mini Reese's peanut butter cups, and strawberries. 

There were even a few left over chocolate chip cookies that found their way into the chocolate.

Our family brainstormed a few ideas for next time:
  • pineapple
  • mini snickers
  • rice crispy treats
  • grapes
  • pretzel sticks
  • cookie dough balls[made without eggs]
While fondue is not a dessert you do would do every day, for special occasions it doesn't get much better. 

 This fondue pot is so retro fabulous!  I absolutely love it.  Guess what?  [Lucky, lucky me.  I got to keep it.]
