Fun with Fondue #18 -- Romantic Fondue for Valentine’s Day
February 10, 2014
Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, and whether you’ll be celebrating with your life partner in a romantic setting or having a fun dinner with single friends, chocolate fondue is always an excellent choice for dessert on February 14.
Romantic Fondue For Valentine’s Day
Here's an easy chocolate fondue recipe you can make at home:
You can use dark or semi-sweet chocolate instead of milk chocolate.
Instead of light cream, you can use anything from milk to whipping cream. Start with a very small quantity and add just enough to make it easier to dip your pieces of fresh fruit into the melted chocolate.
Orange liqueur is optional. You can use Amaretto, other
liqueur or no liqueur at all!
Don't rush the melting process! If you're tempted to do it in the microwave, make sure to melt your chocolate at the lowest power setting, and do it in one-minute increments, stirring well each time.
You can use almost anything for dippers. Here are a few ideas:
fresh strawberries, apple slices, biscotti, marshmallows, pineapple chunks, donut holes, wafers, waffles, pretzels and whatever else you like to dip in chocolate!
Create the Perfect Romantic Atmosphere
By adding candles, flowers and setting the table with your nicest silverware and wine or champagne glasses, you can transform a basic fondue dessert into a wonderfully romantic evening, but you can also build up to it by sending tiny little text messages that will INSPIRE even the biggest romantic dummy to give you the love and romance you deserve.
Plus it shows you the exact messages to use to get your sweetie feeling appreciated, loved, wanted without having to do any real work at all (in fact, you'll learn why doing "romantic" stuff you see in movies or that greeting card companies tell you to do can backfire and make your partner pull away.)
