For many of us, Easter is a long weekend spent with family and friends. I'm currently in Mexico, and here's it's a BIG deal, with many people taking the entire week off and spending Semana Santa at the beach.
Whether you're planning to host a quiet dinner at home or are busy preparing a feast for your entire extended family, you can incorporate fondue in your Easter plans as a main meal, appetizer, or dessert.
This month's newsletter includes a few fondue recipes and a fun activity that you can incorporate in your Easter plans.
Monthly Fondue Tip
Easter Egg Hunt
Why not combine your annual Easter Egg Hunt with a chocolate fondue this year? Hide chocolate eggs throughout the house, on the porch, or in various
places. Then have the kids find them, unwrap them, and place them in the fondue pot while you cut some fresh fruit to dip in the melted chocolate.
Any kind of chocolate eggs will do. You can even use the "chocolate bunnies" and have your kids smash them and watch the pieces melt in the fondue pot.
Here's a basic recipe that you can tweak: https://www.bestfondue.com/recipe-for-chocolate-fondue.html.
You can also add extra flavoring (like liqueur, vanilla, peppermint, etc. - what you pick will depend on the types/flavors of the Easter eggs you used.)
Monthly Recipe Idea
Coq au Vin Fondue
If you're planning on serving fondue as a meal on Easter, I highly recommend this delicious broth recipe, inspired by the French "Coq au vin" dish. Red wine is added to the broth, and you can
cook thin slices of chicken, cherry tomatoes, and mushrooms in it.
You'll also find a list of recommended dippers and dipping sauces on the recipe page.
Food For Thought
"Don't wreck a sublime chocolate experience by feeling guilty. Chocolate isn't like premarital sex. It will not make you pregnant. And it always feels good."
- Lora Brody
