It’s Easter 2016…My husband and I had brunch at the home of great friends, Angie and Mark Fredrick. The Peterson and Turschman families were present with kids in tow. Fabulous food was served like an Easter ham carved by Mark. Jodi and Teri made Cheesy Potatoes and Cinnamon Roll French Toast bake. Delicious, fabulous, outstanding girls…! Connie was serving up perfect Mimosas, too. I was asked to bring Chocolate Fondue. No meal is complete without dessert, right? I had not made Chocolate Fondue in a long time so I was thrilled to share this recipe. My recipe is quick and easy, no fuss. Combine heavy cream, semisweet and bittersweet chocolate with salted caramel topping. Bittersweet chocolate is not as sweet as semisweet which almost tastes like drinking sugar. The results are creamy, rich, chocolatey goodness. Serve with dippers like my homemade Pound Cake cut into cubes and fresh fruit. Absolute deliciousness! Thank you Angie and Mark for a blessed day. The next time you need a fun dessert for any occasion, try my Chocolate Fondue. Kids will love the fun of dipping, too.
