Chocolate fondue isn't the type of treat you usually get to enjoy everyday. Most of the time it only comes out on special occasions. This is the day to enjoy it without any other reason! You don't need a holiday or another person to have a great time dipping stuff in melted chocolate. All you need is yourself and a fondue pot. An added bonus is that you can buy a fondue pot now and then use it to really impress your sweetheart this Valentine's Day!
Fondue comes from the French word fondre, meaning to melt. It originated in 19th century Switzerland where fondue was meant for hardening cheese. Fondue later became popular in the ‘50s at dinner parties and later was used as a method for dessert in the ‘60s.
Traditionally fresh fruits such as bananas, strawberries, pineapple and tangerines are used, but you can also use small pieces of cookie or cake and other goodies like marshmallows and pretzels.
So melt your way into this day by dipping into all different kinds of melted chocolates and different snack dippers.
