This is a tradition that I looked forward to as a child. I love CHOCOLATE. My mom always made this so fun with all kinds of fruit, angel food cake, and other fun things to dip. She always used her crock pot for warming. My family has fond memories sitting around the kitchen table eating this treat while spending time together. It really is a perfect treat to share with your loved ones on Valentine’s Day.
16 oz. semi sweet or dark chocolate chips
1 1⁄2 c. whipping cream
In a sauce pan, melt the chocolate chips on a low setting, stirring often to keep it from burning. Once the chocolate is melted, whisk in whipping cream. Add to fondue pot, crock pot, or bowl. If you use a bowl, your chocolate will be dip-able for about 40 minutes.
Angel food cake
Frozen cheese cake chunks
This is a simple recipe we found online at lecremedelacrumb.com.
Three ingredients and voila, you have yummy fondue! The simplicity makes it that much better!
25 caramels, unwrapped
1/3 c. milk or heavy cream
1/3 c. mini marshmallows
1/2tsp. fine sea salt (optional)
Add all ingredients into a crockpot or in a sauce pan for about an hour on low. Add salt (optional). Start dipping.
Pepper Jack Fondue
Ryan is not a big fan of overly sweet treats. He enjoys savory treats more, so we made this yummy cheese fondue with him in mind. It was delicious.
1⁄2 lb. Pepper Jack cheese, cubed or shredded
1⁄4 lb. Mozzarella cheese, cubed or shredded
1 1⁄2 tsp cornstarch
1/3 c. chicken broth
salt and pepper to taste
Melt the cheese in a saucepan on low heat. When melted, add cornstarch and chicken
broth. Stir until thick and creamy. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Cubed salami or sausage
The only rule is no double dipping- dip what you want and enjoy that ooey, gooey deliciousness!
