This weekend we went over to our fabulous friends Jon & Cheryl's house for a fondue night. I was in charge of the chocolate fondue, and Cheryl did the cheese and  coq au vin meat fondue. Cheryl's fondues were both excellent, and if you are interested in the recipes, you can pop over to her blog to get them.


I found this chocolate fondue recipe from Rocco DiSpirito on Good Morning America's site. I wanted a dessert fondue that incorporated white and milk chocolate  because that is the kind my hubby and I always get when we go out to dinner at The Melting Pot. Side note: The Melting Pot is my absolute favorite restaurant and my hubby hates chain restaurants, so the only time I get my fondue fix is on my birthday when I get to pick the restaurant with no input from the hubs. I like this recipe because it was super easy and tasted great. We dipped an array of yummy desserts and fruits in the chocolate: pound cake, brownies, rice krispie treats, marshmallows, apples, and bananas. Unfortunately I could not find any strawberries at the store, but they are phenomenal in chocolate fondue too!

  1. I love the idea of mixing the dark and white chocolates. What I love more is that it doesn't have any cream in it and it still looks absolutely luscious without the amount of fat!
