Chocolate Fondue

If you want to do something memorable for your sweetheart this Valentine’s Day, but want to avoid the crowds and overpriced menus, consider making a romantic dinner for two at home with a special chocolate dessert. Fondue is a fun, whimsical dessert that is perfect for an intimate dinner because it can be prepared in advance and kept warm while you eat.

If you don’t have a fancy fondue set, you can still enjoy this decadent dessert using a small slow cooker. Dip your fruit or pound cake right into the slow cooker or scoop the chocolate mixture into a bowl and surround it with assorted dippers like strawberries, pineapple, banana, angel food or pound cake, pretzels, marshmallows or cookies. Don’t forget to share! Fondue is the perfect dessert for trading sweet bites with your Valentine.
