As I was looking through the pictures of our fondue party for Tricia’s birthday a couple months ago, it occurred to me that fondue would be so fun for Valentine’s day!
To put together a fondue party, including both main course cheese fondue and dessert chocolate fondue, collect a whole buffet of sauces and dips, veggies and bread options for dipping, grilled chicken and steak, dessert sauces and fruit and sweets for chocolate dipping. Specifically, our lineup included-
-tomatoes, bell peppers, mushrooms, sweet potatoes, and kale chips
-focacia bread and tortilla chips
-pretzel rolls (or soft pretzels)
-homemade salsa, chipotle mayo (love this stuff!), balsamic fig jam, creamy dill dipping sauce (recipe to come-it’s so good!), polynesian sauce from Chick Fil A, Chick Fil A sauce, barbeque sauce
-marshmallows, angel food cake, strawberries, raspberries, apples, pears, bananas, brownie bites, shortbread, Oreos
–dark chocolate kahlua chocolate fondue
-caramel sauce, whipped cream, strawberry sauce with Grand Marnier
This fondue party made for such a fantastic night- I can’t wait to try this again sometime soon!
I live in Canada. When a good friend from university went to Boston for a master’s degree, I was anxious to visit. My memory, which could be skewed, says that I was there 5 days and we ate 9 meals in restaurants. (is that even possible? No matter!) One meal was a chocolate fondue with fruit. Delicious, decadent and not regretted. Thanks for the memories!
9 restaurant meals in 5 days- wow! And we love fondue too- decadent is a great way to describe it!
We have a big fondue party every New Year’s Eve. Our kids look forward to it every year and have threatened anarchy if we don’t have it!
Robin, I love that! My parents made New Year’s Eve so special for us growing up- it’s totally still one of my favorite holidays. I love it that you’re doing the same for your family!
Love this! Planning on a fondue party for valentines day… and strange question…. but what brand is that pretty red fondue pot? I’d love that one!!
Cheryl, I love the fondue-for-Valentines-Day plan!
And (sadly) that fondue pot was given to Goodwill when we moved overseas and got rid of 90% of our stuff. Wish I could check for you. 😉
I will totally be checking your blog for fondue party details, friend!
