As a special Valentine's Day treat, we had a little family fondue party. Lil' Kay was pretty excited about it, but the excitement didn't last long. I had cut up a hotdog so he could dip them in the cheese fondue. Unfortunately, he dipped the first piece in the chocolate fondue and stuck it in his mouth. Apparently, that is not a good flavor combo, as he had to spit it out! He wouldn't have anything to do with the fondue for the rest of the meal. But, he did enjoy poking his hotdogs with the fondue sticks and dipping them in ketchup!
I made a simple chocolate fondue by melting milk chocolate chips and shortening in the microwave and adding 1/2 teaspoon of almond flavoring. It tasted wonderful! Especially with bananas! I got the cheese fondue recipe from Kraft foods. I used the variation with the Italian seasoning. It was pretty good, too! We had garlic bread and toasted ravioli to dip in that. It was a fun little Valentine's Day. We didn't really do anything else special, but Lil' Kay was excited about our "feast"!
