October 22, 2017
Since Halloween is quickly approaching, this month's newsletter will offer lots of great ideas on how to have fun with Halloween fondue.
I'll cover how to present vegetables/meat to "scare" your guests and 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 Fondue Tip
Fun with Halloween fondue
Are you hosting a Halloween party this year? Why not throw a Halloween-themed fondue? There's lots of ways you can present your healthy veggies in a "spooky" way. Meat fondue? Well, you can present it in a way that's plain scary!
I've saved a lot of Pinterest images to get your creative juices going if you're hosting a Halloween get-together. You'll find ideas on how to present your vegetables, your raw meat and shrimp for oil or broth fondue, and more:
Monthly Recipe Idea
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!)
Don't have Mars, Aero, Toblerone chocolate bars, or Kraft caramel squares?
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, whiskey... Best to warm it up to match the temperature of your melted chocolate. 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 time, you'll discover that certain dippers go better with certain types of dessert fondue. Go ahead and get inspired by my Halloween Fondue Pinterest board!
Have fun and experiment!
Food For Thought
"Long as you bring me some chocolate," Gramma said, and smiled. "I'm partial to chocolate."
"Gramma, you're diabetic."
"I'm old, girl. Gonna die of something. Might as well be chocolate."
