I thought it might be fun to share some pictures of our Fondue Party from Monday night. I planned the fondue party as part of our weekly menu because my cheese-hating husband was out-of-town. We all decided that we sadly were not really fans of the cheese fondue (maybe I need a different recipe? I found it very bland! I used mild Cheddar…perhaps sharp cheddar would have made a difference?). Two of us found the chocolate fondue phenomenal while my younger son proclaimed it “too chocolatey” I am almost sure I gave birth to that child but statements like that make me wonder!
First I had to take care of the contents of the kitchen table(again!)
Calories in spilled chocolate chips do not count!
I don’t have a proper fondue pot so we just used smaller bowls to hold our fondue (and ranch dressing) for the dipping. I doubt I’ll be investing in a fondue pot any time soon. The fondue party was fun even though we had a fon-won’t among us (any guesses WHO that would have been?). J’s party dinner party fare consisted of ranch dressing as opposed to the cheese. G and I loved it the chocolate fondue. Tasted like liquid fudge to me (and I poured some of that liquid fudge over a bowl of ice cream yesterday). J had strawberries and whipped cream for his dessert instead. I was quite proud of myself for not letting the whole thing with him being a fon-don’t turn into one of those “We are going to do this and have fun because I SAID SO!” kind of times. I was not quite as proud when my husband called and basically learned I’d fed his offspring popcorn, apples, broccoli, and bread for dinner (I did make them eat some peanuts for protein but admittedly, the dinner table looked a bit like a Charlie Brown Thanksgiving rather than a proper family dinner). So do you Fondue or Fon-don’t? And if you Fon-don’t, do you like Fondant?
