Every holiday season my parents would retrieve a magical box from the far back of the kitchen cabinet above the refrigerator to prepare for the upcoming gatherings. This box held the most magnificent funky metal contraption and long, thin metal forks with plastic handles in yellow, orange and other 70’s era colors. Being a young child, I couldn’t predict what joy this contraption would hold throughout my life, but to this day, I still think fondly of this magical fondue set.
Time changes everything, and chocolate fondue is no exception to this rule. Chocolate fondue is served and presented differently at today's gatherings than in the 70’s, and there are several ways to do it. For instance, with white chocolate gaining in popularity, white chocolate fondue is becoming even more popular.
Speaking of dipping, white, dark and milk chocolate fondues are great for dipping a variety of finger foods: cookies, pretzels, marshmallows, pound cake, brownies, and favorite fruit. Try bananas, mangoes, strawberries, apples, and orange sections. You can also add a fruit or mint flavor to your chocolate for variety. Anything goes, so use your imagination!\
