Since Halloween is just a few days away, this month's newsletter will offer lots of great ideas for Halloween-themed get-togethers, including Halloween fondue.
I'll also 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 Tip - Halloween Fondue Ideas
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!)
Mars bar chocolate fondue
Aero bar chocolate
Toblerone chocolate fondue
Caramel square fondue
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, 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 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!
