Fondue Night!

Saturday night is dessert night in our house.  The deal is, if the girls at least TRY their dinner during the week, on Saturday, they can pick a special dessert to have after dinner.  On this particular Saturday the kids chose chocolate fondue!  We love to break out the fondue pot for a filling night of unhealthy dipping!  We prepped the dipping plates ahead of time and mixed the chocolate ingredients in the pot after dinner.  It only takes minutes to melt on the warm setting.  So sit your toddlers in the center of the kitchen table next to some molten chocolate and hand them a spear....It's fondue night!!!!!

Chocolate Fondue
  • 32 ounces milk chocolate (or 32 ounces of semi-sweet chocolate)
  • 1 1/4 cups heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon white sugar
  • 1/3 cup hot water

1.  Combine chocolate with heavy cream and melt on warm in the fondue pot.   Add remaining ingredients, stir and serve immediately with side dishes of bananas, strawberries, pretzels or whatever dippers you choose!
