I love chocolate and I love fondue. We went to Melting Pot a few weeks ago and had Turtle Fondue. It was a yummy chocolate fondue with caramel undertones and then pecan pieces. It was very delicious. I was craving some fondue and bought some strawberries at Whole Foods today, so it seemed the perfect opportunity. Well, it turned out to be a wonderful, but messy treat. The kids all dipped at once and dropped their dippers in the chocolate, and the table was covered with drips of chocolate. Eventually we got down a system where we dipped for them whatever their choice was. By the end, Annalise (my chocolate lover) was asking for plain strawberries because it was so rich. But it was so good! A fun family night dessert that was a huge hit with all of us!
We used the leftovers like hot fudge and it was divine! Rewarm in microwave and pour over ice cream. It hardens back up slightly, making it like the fudgy chunks in moose tracks ice cream. Wonderful!
