Simple and Sweet: Fondue

For our anniversary, Sweetheart took me to The Melting Pot for dessert. I remembered that we own a fondue pot. It was a wedding gift that was seasoned this year.

When I explained to Underfoot what we were going to eat, he was a little hesitant. The second time he responded like this:

Then we introduced Hurricane to fondue....
And got this.
I love those intense eyes.
And this.

Our recipe is
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup 60% cocoa chips
  • 1 cup homemade caramel
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • pound cake cut up in 1 inch cubes
  • strawberries
  • cherries (pitted of course)
  • apples
  • marshmallows
  • other yummy things to dip
Warm the caramel. Turn off the heat and stir in the chips. Add the nuts.Cut up fruit and cake. Dip and enjoy!

It was SOOOOOO yummy! I swear it was like dipping fruit in hot fudge. If you make it again, please feel free to think of the Merrimans! :)
