Who loves chocolate?!?!

That resounding internet cheer I just heard tells me all I need to know.


Yep, chocolate is universally loved – whether it’s white or dark, milk or bittersweet. We enjoy it all year long, but it takes on special meaning around, oh…February, for some reason.

There’s this holiday, you know. Chocolate sales go through the roof. Nothing says “I love you, babe” like 5 pounds of chocolates in a heart-shaped box.

If you’re looking for something a little bit different this V-Day to celebrate your love with, why not consider dippable chocolate? Easy Chocolate Fondue isn’t scary, or at all hard to make, and I guarantee it will impress your love!

They say that the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach.

I’m not sure who “they” are, but I’d argue that this statement applies equally to women nowadays! At least, in my case. Nothing brings a smile to my face like coming home from work to my husband having cooked a tasty dinner.

(A glass of wine poured and the dishes done are an added bonus, hint hint.)

We don’t go all crazy for Valentine’s Day.

We aren’t the kind of marrieds who need reservations at a fancy restaurant or dozens of roses to show our love one day a year – we are super low key, and I like it that way.

Sometimes he’ll bring home lilies or one of those cute but cheesy heart-shaped Mylar balloons. We eat dinner together like usual, and I like to make a decadent dessert to end the evening.

Nothing says decadence like chocolate, but it doesn’t have to be over-the-top. In fact, you can whip up this Easy Chocolate Fondue in about ten minutes, including the time it takes to prep all your dippers, and you don’t need an expensive, fancy pot to do so!

Heavy cream. Chopped dark chocolate. A dash of vanilla, and a splash of liqueur if you’re feeling froggy. That’s it!

Melt it all together over your stovetop (or microwave) and you have just about the quickest dessert this side of plastic packaging and artificial flavors.

It might be cliche, but there is something inherently seductive about feeding the one you love food covered in melted chocolate – amirite?

And this easy fondue is unbelievably delicious! I added a few teaspoons of Godiva chocolate liqueur to amp up the cocoa, but amaretto, Irish cream, and Chambord are other lovely flavor combos worth trying.

So go forth, my friends, and fondue with your love! It’s way more fun than testing out generic chocolates in a box, (and you won’t throw any of it away, either!)
