Our Valentine's day tradition is to have a fondue dinner with our kids. I don't feel the need to go out ON valentine's day and wait hours to eat at a restaurant that I can go to a few days later and get right in. So, it's a stay-at-home, celebrate-with-the-family type of day for us.
This year, I'm foregoing the entire fondue dinner because I may or may not be having a baby, but we're going to stick with dessert. So, here is my favorite recipe - Black Sorcery Fondue!
2 T light corn syrup
1/2 C half-and-half
8 - 9 oz of semi-sweet good chocolate - like Ghiradelli
1 t vanilla
Put everything together in a double boiler and heat slowly, stirring frequently until melted and blended.
You can transfer the mixture to a true fondue pot to keep warm, but we eat it so fast, we just keep it in the double boiler.
Our favorite things to dip:
