A few years ago we began in the Novotny home the tradition of having a chocolate fondue for one of our Valentines Celebrations. Yes, I am training my kids to be chocoholics like their mother, more excuses to feed my addiction.
So, pull out that buried fondue pot you received as a wedding gift or purchase an in-expensive one at your local variety store (a well worth purchase) and get ready to create a YUMMY Valentine dessert for your family.
Step 1 – Decide what you will use for your chocolate dipping sauce. I use Sephra chocolate which I purchase online at http://www.sephrafountains.com/. You can also use a variety of different recipes or buy the already packaged chocolate dipping sauce, usually found in your chocolate baking section of the grocery store.
Step 2 – Choose your items for dipping. We use a mix of fruits and sweets from the list I have listed out here.
Fruits- Strawberries, Sliced bananas, apples, pears, dried fruit, pineapple, raspberries.
Cakes, Cookies and sweets – Marshmallows, pound cake in cubes, bite sized brownies, lady fingers, graham crackers, vanilla wafers, angel food cake, spritz cookies, biscotti.
Step 3 – Gather needed serving items: Dipping sticks ( bamboo kabob stick work great), bowls for the various dipping items, plates for each person and lots of napkins.
A tradition and treat your entire family will enjoy this Valentines day.
