Fun with Fondue!

Chocolate Fondue

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.
