Fun with Fondue #25 -- Halloween Fondue - Chocolate Fondue Recipes
October 06, 2014

Since Halloween is just a few weeks away, this month's newsletter will cover how to make fondue from left-over Halloween chocolate or caramel treats.

Whether you will be trick-or-treating with your kids, staying home to hand out treats or going to a party with friends, I wish you a fantastic Halloween!

Monthly Recipe Ideas

Here are a few Halloween fondue recipes that you can enjoy with your left-over Halloween treats! (or with some of your kids' stash -- with their permission, of course!)

Mars bar chocolate fondue

Aero bar chocolate fondue

Toblerone chocolate fondue

Caramel square fondue

Monthly Tip: DIY Chocolate Fondue Recipe

If you look at the recipes listed above, you'll notice that they're pretty similar. They're just variations on the basic recipe.

Don't have Mars, Aero, Toblerone chocolate bars or Kraft caramel squares?

No problem.

If you have any kind of chocolate candy left-overs from Halloween, you can use the basic recipe as a starting point, then experiment!

It's all about warming up a little dairy (fresh 35% cream, frozen whipped cream, evaporated milk, etc.) and melting small chunks of chocolate bars in it. You can also add other 'flavors' like coffee, liqueurs, whisky,... Your decision will affect the texture (and flavor!) so start off with just a little, then add more to taste, making sure to stir well and taste before adding more!

You'll obviously need dippers to dunk into the delicious melted chocolate, so choose whatever fruits/breads/nuts/desserts you like and cut them into bite-sized pieces. With experience, you'll discover that certain dippers go better with certain types of dessert fondue.

Have fun and experiment!

Food For Thought

"My therapist told me the way to achieve true inner peace is to finish what I start. So far today, I have finished 2 bags of M&M's and a chocolate cake. I feel better already."

- Dave Barry
