Fondue

Several months ago I ran across a brand new in the box Fondue pot at a local thrift store. But until this week I was still needing some extra Fondue forks beyond the six that came with it. Also turns out Wal-mart had heavy cream on sale for a dollar a quart. 🙂   So we attempted fondue for supper. The vegetables and steak slices cooked in broth took too long so everyone decided to forgo that part next time. Now fitting seven dippers around a small fondue pot is a different matter.

Chocolate Fondue Recipe

  • 8 ounces of heavy cream
  • Dipping items such as strawberries, banana pieces, apple pieces, cubed pound cake, cookies

Method

1 Warm the cream over in double boiler. Add the chocolate and stir until smooth.

If the fondue begins to feel a little stiff, add a tablespoon of heavy cream and stir.

  1. My oldest got a fondue pot for Christmas from my sister and it is still in the box! We need to get it out and make use of these recipes, huh? 🙂
    I didn’t think about the fondue sticks though. Do they sell them in bulk, by chance? LOL!

    Laine,

    I bought a set of six at Bed, Bath & Beyond for around $5. Maybe we can get together and have a dipping party. 🙂 But just getting seven around one pot was tight. You will have trouble unless you just dip for the little ones.
