I love to entertain, but with a full-time job, a 2-year-old and another one on the way, I don't have a lot of time. This is one of my favorite quick ways to have a memorable time with others. There's nothing like catching up with friends as we gather around a fondue pot! —Tonya Vowels, Vine Grove, Kentucky
German sweet chocolate gives rich flavor to this simple specialty from Helen Phillips. Just a handful of ingredients and a microwave make the sweet fondue a fast favorite at her Horseheads, New York home. "We like it with dippers such as bananas, strawberries and marshmallows," she writes.
It's easy to keep the ingredients for this rich fondue on hand in case company drops by. I serve it in punch cups, so guests can carry it on a dessert plate alongside whatever fruit, pretzels and other dippers they like. —Cheryl Arnold, Lake Zurich, Illinois
Jane Franks of Spokane, Washington combines prepared chocolate frosting with sour cream to create a sweet dip that's perfect with fresh fruit. "It's easy to keep the ingredients for this quick dessert on hand for company," she remarks. "It's also decadent served with sugar cookies."
This fun and elegant dessert dip is ideal for special occasions and doubles nicely for get-togethers with friends. But, it tastes so wonderful, you’ll have a hard time sharing it at all! Karen Owen - Rising Sun, Indiana
When your festive meal is over, continue the celebration by gathering around the fondue pot. Everyone will enjoy dipping cookies into this chocolaty concoction...but they'll have an even better time gobbling up the fabulous results!
“This recipe is fun for kids but can also be the perfect ending to a gourmet meal,” says Kim Terhune of Mountain Lakes, New Jersey. “And as the chocolate cools, it gets thicker and coats the food even better!”
