To Fondue, or To Fondon’t
Hello, Crossroad's! Isn't it just a great day? Well, your day is going to get better with this holiday knowledge, for today is Chocolate Fondue Day! You a fan of the Cocoa Due? Awesome! I'm just going to assume that every, minus those with allergy conflicts (we'll find a holiday to celebrate that is less detrimental to your health), love or at the very least enjoy chocolate. If you are a person who doesn't like chocolate and not have an allergy to it, I can only wonder what happened to you for you to dislike it. Perhaps you haven't had the right kind? Perhaps, you should give chocolate fondue a chance...or another chance?
You see, this holiday isn't about having chocolate fondue on your own but rather enjoying it with company. February 5th is a special day to share your chocolate fondue with friends, family, coworkers, and NOT your pets (seriously don't give any of this to your pets) and have fun. Chocolate fondue is a wonderful invention used to dip various foods into to enhance the flavor and overall enjoyment. Have some ideas what would be perfect to submerge (or dip) into melted chocolate that flows like warm water out of a fountain or sits perfectly still in a fondue cooker? Personally I would say marshmallows are absolutely perfect...along with slices apples, oranges, pears, peaches, strawberries, cherries, various nuts, more chocolate, sticks of toasted bread, cake, and I think you get the idea.

Well, chocolate fondue was created and popular in the US in the 1960's in New York by Konrad Egli. He wanted a new fondue dessert for his Swiss restaurant and made chocolate fondue. Typically most fondues are made with liqueurs, so just keep that in mind when making your homemade batch. Now, there have been fondue recipes that go all the way back to the late 1600's in Swizterland, but it was Konrad who decided to use chocolate that chocolate fondue became a thing.
