    chocolatefondue_250A Valentines Dinner would not be complete without dessert and for me, this dessert should be something chocolate. Call it traditional. Call it mushy. I don’t care. I have to have chocolate on Valentine’s Day! So here is my pick from Rachel Ray’s ideas for the day of love – Chocolate Fondue:

    1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
    1 cup milk
    1/4 cup sugar
    Two 12-ounce bags semisweet chocolate chips
    1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
    Dried apricots, for dipping
    Gala apples, cored and sliced, for dipping
    Pretzel rods, for dipping
    Marshmallows, for dipping

    1. In a medium saucepan, combine the cocoa powder with 1/2 cup water and cook over low heat, stirring constantly, for 1 minute. Stir in the milk and sugar and bring to a simmer. Add the chocolate chips and vanilla and cook, stirring, until the chocolate is melted and the mixture is smooth, about 5 minutes.
    2. Serve the fondue warm with the apricots, apples, pretzel rods and marshmallows for dipping.

    There’s nothing like good old chocolate fondue to top off a romantic evening. Imagine having a very satisfying meal together. How much more romantic can you get than this – a cozy conversation while dipping fruits and marshmallows into a sumptuous chocolate fondue? You can’t get any better than that, really. The rest of the evening is up to you. Happy Valentines everyone!

    Note: If you do not like the fruits mentioned above, you can always find some other fruits that you prefer. Try bananas or strawberries.
