Fondue Recipes

We decided to have a fondue night for New Year's Eve! It turned out so yummy so I thought I would share the recipe.

Chocolate Fondue
12 oz of Chocolate--I use Hershey bars and break them up into the squares
1/4 cup milk

Put the Chocolate and milk into the pot....stirring until it melts.

Then you'll need 10 Large Marshmallows.
I break them into small pieces....and add a few small pieces in at a time...stirring constantly.

Then gradually add in 1/4 cup Whipping Cream.

Use all sorts of fun dippers!
Strawberries, Bananas, Marshmallows, Pound cake, Cheesecake bites, brownie bites, kitkats, rice krispie squares, graham cracker sticks, etc.

The stirring is the most important part--you don't walk away from it from start to don't want precious chocolate to burn!!!! I set my fondue pot on warm...I assume all may differ. We also have used a pot or wok on the stove and then transferred it into a fountain before...

Cheese Fondue
This time we used
1 large Velveeta Cheese
1 Can Rotel Tomatoes
1 cup Sour Cream
1 Cup Ranch Dressing

Yum, Yum!
Fun dippers: granny smith apples, tortillas chips and Fritos, Veggies--carrots, cauliflower, broccoli, rye bread or other harder breads cut into squares, etc.

That is exactly what I would love to have right now! LOL That is a great idea for a party. I am going to have to remember that. If I made it for my family, it just wouldn't be a good idea because I would eat most of it. LOL
