5 Fondue Recipes for an At-Home Date Night


Fondue

Planning to stay in this Valentine’s Day? At-home date nights can be just as fun and romantic as hitting the town. If you’re in the mood to do something special from the comfort of your own home, sharing a pot of warm fondue can be a great experience. Here are five delicious fondue recipes perfect for a night in.
 
Don’t own a fondue pot? Don’t worry! You can mix the ingredients in a slow cooker and cover for one hour until everything is combined. For savory fondues, we suggest dipping cubes of crusty bread, cooked chicken breast, cooked sausage, boiled potatoes, asparagus, broccoli, or cauliflower florets. For sweet fondue, try dipping dried or fresh fruit, pretzels, graham crackers, marshmallows, and cubed angel food cake.
