Chocolate Fondue

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.

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.
