Loving Lately: National Chocolate Fondue Day (February 5)
I feel that it is my patriotic duty to observe as many National Food Holidays as possible… when I remember to check what they are. But National Chocolate Fondue Day is not one that I take lightly. I like to celebrate it often, just in remembrance, because I love chocolate fondue. In fact, even if it were not a holiday, I would celebrate it on many days; as I have for many years, before I knew it was a holiday. And even though we don’t grow the cocoa bean here in the US, we know how to appreciate it, so by jove some thoughtful man or woman took it upon their civil duty to petition to have a National Chocolate Fondue day, and I think we owe it to them to celebrate it… everywhere! Don’t you?
I’m proud to say someone else in my house thinks so too. I found my little patriot, as I often do, celebrating all by himself.
An easy recipe for a great chocolate fondue:
6 oz of milk chocolate chips melted with…
1/4 cup chunky (or creamy) peanut butter
Dip fruit, graham crackers, marshmallows or whatever else you’d like!
Is there a National Chocolate & Peanut Butter Day? I’ll check. Because I’d like another reason to celebrate that too.
