Hmmm… chocolate! There’s something sexy about melted chocolate. It’s so effortlessly smooth and decadent. Now imagine a date night with your sweetie feeding each other food dipped in this smooth decadence. Talk about fun and sensual.
We’re heating your date with a chocolate fondue night.
Mercedes G: “If done right, fondue is the best dinner party meal.”
Having chocolate fondue is one of the easiest ways of incorporating chocolate on your date. Use a fondue set or melt chocolate in a pot or double boiler on low heat. Click here for how-to instructions. You get to make your own rules on whether double dipping is allowed.
Here are some ideas to get you started:
Savory Chocolate Fondue – Use a savory chocolate sauce and dip in pieces of cooked lamb, venison, chicken, lobster or beef…whatever your heart desires.
1. Use savory chocolates both in milk and white chocolate.
You can find chocolate bars made with spices such as rosemary, sea salt, or black pepper and meats such as bacon or beef. Just to name a few. You can melt these bars down on low heat and voila a savory chocolate dinner. Visit your local chocolatier for these specialty bars.
2.Traditional Mexican mole sauce
Mole is a savory sauce made with many different spices including chocolate. This makes the perfect savory fondue base that you can make your own or buy a jar in your local supermarket that you can pour into the fondue pot.
3. Sweet Chocolate Fondue – Melt your favorite chocolate using milk, dark or white chocolate bars.
You can also look for chocolate that is specifically made as “fondue chocolate” and is available at local chocolate retail stores or in the baking section at the supermarket. Follow the directions on the package.
Prepare a platter of bite-sized pieces of marshmallows, candies, fruit (berries, orange slices etc…) and baked sweets (cookies, wafers, cake etc…)
1. Consider adding other delicacies such as chocolate caramel or flavored-infused caramels to the melted chocolate.
2. Have one fondue pot with dark chocolate and swirl in (rather than mix) melted white chocolate so that as you dip, you pull out a two-colored chocolate treat.
3. Have small bowls/plates of toppings you are dip your fruit into like sprinkles, shredded coconut, finely chopped nuts, and sesame seeds.
“I only recognize two food groups: fruit and chocolate. And if it’s fruit, it should be dipped in chocolate.” – Anonymous
There’s not much involved in setting up a fondue date night and can be set up on a spontaneous whim. You can use this idea again and again. To add some newness to the date, try experimenting with different kinds of chocolates. Treat you and your sweetie a night of decadence.
