Valentine's Day Fondue


Valentine’s Day is all about showering your significant other with love and one of the best ways to show you care is to make them a sweet treat! One of the most versatile and satisfying desserts is chocolate fondue. It’s also perfect for Valentine’s Day because it’s effortlessly romantic. Here’s a simple, foolproof recipe:

1 cup heavy cream

1/2 stick unsalted butter

1 (12-ounce) package semisweet chocolate morsels

1 (12-ounce) package milk chocolate morsels

In a large saucepan over medium heat, combine cream and butter. Bring mixture to a simmer, stirring constantly. Remove pan from heat. Add semisweet and milk chocolate morsels. Stir until melted and smooth. Cool slightly. Transfer to a fondue pot, chafing dish, or ceramic bowl. Serve immediately with sliced apples, sliced bananas, strawberries, cookies, pretzels, and pound cake.

Don’t forget the wine! I recommend a rich Shiraz, it will really complement the sweet flavors of the chocolate.

Happy Valentine’s Day!
