Chocolate Fondue Party

A few weeks ago for my girls' youth group activity we had a fondue night.

As you may have imagined, the girls swooned over all the treats to dip in melted chocolate. But who am I kidding, the adults swooned too!

I love thinking of fun things to dip in fondue, the possibilities are seriously endless! Plus, my friends made two different kinds of fondue and I loved them both so the recipes are below. Although I think the marshmallow one was my favorite! You can choose which one you want to try or have both like we did!

Here are the goodies we dipped:

Strawberries, of course!

Bananas, they cancel out the calories in the chocolate, right?

Homemade pound cake

Green Apples and Pink Lady Apple Slices

Graham crackers, pretzels, marshmallows

Brownies, why wouldn't you dip chocolate in chocolate?

  Use a fondue pot or if you don't have one use a crock pot, regular sized or mini!

Using condiment sized cups was perfect portion control. Plus, by leaving the majority of the chocolate in the crock pot or fondue pot, it stays warm. You could use small bowls too. Or you could all stand around the fondue pot eating chocolate dipped goodies for hours.
 Just saying.

My loot!
