I‘m going to use Valentine’s Day as my excuse for making this yummy dessert. And for possibly licking the bowl clean. Literally. No, I wasn’t raised by neanderthals either; my parents raised me right. This dish is just too yummy to worry about what’s proper.
I fell in love with fondue the moment I swirled a lush strawberry in a piping hot bowl of chocolately goodness at Melting Pot. Love at first bite. The first time I made chocolate fondue was actually for my brother when he was visiting me.
He and I chowed down and dunked strawberries, bananas, doughnuts and pound cake in a bowl of decadent chocolate. I think the decadence gave my brother indigestion.
To be fair, I served a rich dinner followed by chocolate fondue then converted the leftover fondue into hot chocolate mixed with a little Baileys. Possibly lots of Baileys.
Best. Sister. Ever. 😀
I highly recommend this dessert to cap off your Valentine’s Day celebration or any time you need a chocolate fix. Or want to torment your big brother with indigestion. (Really, it’s not the dessert’s fault. He’s a wimp!) This fondue is easy and lick-the-bowl-clean good.
