My two favorite things combine to make Chocolate Fondue Day! What does fondue conjure up when you hear it? I think melty, creamy, hot cheese that you dip a variety of bread and meat into. So, hold the phone, Chocolate Fondue Day? Oh yes! Get your dipping tools ready because it is time to melt down some great chocolate and get to work. I know you can do it, you can, right?
History of Chocolate Fondue Day
I’m sure that there has been chocolate fondue forever but now it has its own day. A full day of devotion! 24 hours of guilty pleasure for all the chocoholics out there. There is no guilt to be had when you are merely celebrating a holiday! That is what we tell ourselves during the winter holidays, so why not now? Makes perfect sense to me.
What exactly is fondue you may ask? Fondue is defined as a dish in which small pieces of food are dipped into a hot sauce or a hot cooking medium such as oil or broth. Even the definition makes my heart skip a beat! It doesn’t have to be just cheese as one normally thinks, and a prize should go to whoever was the first person to pop a chocolate bar into their fondue pot!
There are nice restaurants throughout the world that are making a name for themselves with fondue. If you have one in your city or town I would make time to stop in today to honor Chocolate Fondue Day. If there isn’t a fondue type eatery near you, you could head over to your favorite search engine and pick a few recipes and turn your dining room into a fondue heaven. Just invite some friends and pick up your skewers and have some fun!

The only real way to celebrate Chocolate Fondue Day is to indulge! As mentioned before you can do this at any of the fine restaurants in your area that take their fondue seriously, or at your home. If you are going to try your hand at the fondue fun, you will need to make a list of things that you will want to get.
Of course, you will need your fondue pot. There was a time when most couples would get at least one of these in their stack of wedding presents. It is a good thing that the fondue pot is making a comeback! Once you have the pot you need to decide what your sauce will be. For us today that is easy since it is Chocolate Fondue Day, I bet you know you need some good quality chocolate.
Now you just need to let your imagination run wild! You can get fruit, bread, snacks like pretzels, or even something more sweet like marshmallows to plunge into that sinful sauce! Arrange them on a wooden cutting board and there you go! Grab your friends and get to celebrating Chocolate Fondue Day!
