Delicious Chocolate Fondue
Chyka Keebaugh

If you don’t like chocolate as a dipping sauce, I do not trust you! 

There is nothing more decadent than a tray full of fruits, sweets and cheeses to dip into a gorgeous, oozy chocolate fondue. Nothing at all! Fondues are so simple to make, well melt real! They also look fabulous styled up on a platter, you will impress the fussiest of eaters. I know it’s very 1970’s and probably conjures up some bad memories for some (cheese fondues that film over at the top? no thank you!) but I have tasted the most delicious fondues in my time and I love them. Savoury or sweet, I’m not fussy!

Fondues are also the perfect winter dessert because seriously, who doesn’t want to sit in front of a fire and dip strawberries into warm chocolate? No one! All you need is a funky fondue set, which is available at any good food store and you are ready to go!
