Few desserts are as romantic as chocolate fondue. There is something about silky sweet chocolate draped around a fresh strawberry, moist piece of pound cake or combined with a salty pretzel is absolute heaven. Most people shy away from preparing fondue at home because they think it it too complicated or requires special equipment. The fact of the matter is that this dessert is so simple to prepare that once you have done it once, you'll be whipping up fondue every chance you get. Snuggle up next to your loved one with a fondue platter and a great movie for one incredible date night.
