You may now include a chocolate Christmas fondue party in your holiday traditions. Fondue is entertaining, simple, and delicious. If you want something to serve on New Year’s Eve, it is strongly advised that you create fondue. Also, this is the best way to use up all of the extra cookies and sweets.
Fondue is a simple dish to make. You’re on the right road if you don’t have the time or patience for intricate holiday treats. On Christmas Eve morning, you may easily pick up the products you need at your local grocery shop and be home in 15 minutes. Although going to a shop on Christmas Eve is nerve-racking because of the tight timeline, it will be absolutely painless.
A friend suggested that melting marshmallows into chocolate was the key. This makes the chocolate stick to your food better. In the past, the chocolate would slide off anything dipped into it, especially semi-slippery foods such as bananas and strawberries.
Two Things To Know About Chocolate Christmas Fondue
First, it is tempting to make a huge batch of fondue. Then, wonder why there are 2 cups left after everyone is gone. With the pot not very full, you will think that there would not be enough. However, there will still be some leftovers after everyone has finished their meal. You will also find that the more fondue you have, the more likely the food you dip into it will fall off the forks.
Second, a fondue pot is not necessary. It will work fine if you have a regular pot. You can easily reheat it for 60 seconds after 30 minutes of placing it on the table.
CHOCOLATE CHRISTMAS FONDUE
- 1 Tablespoon butter
- 8 large Jet-Puffed marshmallows
- 8 ounces Baker’s semi-sweet chocolate
- 2-4 Tablespoons half-and-half or whipping cream
- optional 2 Tablespoons Planters creamy peanut butter
- In a fondue pot, melt the butter and marshmallows over medium heat.
- To make the chocolate melt faster and more evenly, add it to a bowl in small-ish pieces (if you are using a bar).
- Then, mix in the whipping cream or half-and-half until you get the desired consistency. Add some peanut butter to your mixture, if desired.
You can dip these into your fondue: banana slices, donut holes, strawberries, dates, cookies, pretzels, dried cranberries, raspberries, marshmallows, and coconut (dip another item into the chocolate and then roll it in coconut).
