Magical Holiday Soiree: Fondue Recipe

 

Fondue used to be a huge hit in the 60’s…I believe it is one of the most fun ways to host a variety of tastes. In this case, we are going for sweets! But can be done for savory flavors.

I love swirling the two flavors together for a beautiful presentation and for a simple set up.

Store bought fondue mixtures/syrups are also acceptable, but if you don’t want to sacrifice quality, here are a couple of recipes to whet your whistle:

Caramel Fondue

  • 1 cup Evaporated Milk
  • 2 cups White Sugar
  • 4 tbsp Butter
  • 4 tbsp  Corn Syrup
  • Assortment of Caramel Dippers

In a small saucepan, on low heat, mix all ingredients. Turn heat up to medium until boiling, while stirring constantly. Let the mixture boil and thicken for about 5 minutes. Pour the content in your warm fondue pot.

Dark Chocolate Fondue

  • ¾ cup Whipping cream
  • 12 oz Dark Chocolate
  • 1 tsp Vanilla, Kahlua, or liqueur of your choice

In a sauce pan over low heat, warm up the whipping cream. Be careful not to let it boil. Let the chocolate melt slowly while stirring constantly. Add the vanilla or liqueur of your choice. Pour the melted mixture into the fondue pot.

DIPPER SUGGESTIONS:

  • Almost anything goes here, but here are a few things that are wonderful with either chocolate or caramel fondue.
  • Fruit slices of any kind: Bananas, strawberries, melons, pineapple, apples, kiwi, you get the picture!
  • Cake cut into bite sized pieces (I just try to buy good quality store bought pound cake, brownies, donut holes, etc.)
  • Marshmallows
  • Popcorn and Nuts (Not as easy to dip, but delish if you can do it!)
