A little valentine recap....
I had TWO valentines this year. Aren't they handsome?!
I made candygrams for both of those handsome guys. Even though my hubby doesn't enjoy sweets, he enjoyed the sentiment. As part of our 14 Days of Love we also heart-attacked doors for each other. There was no shortage of hearts in our house.
Everything we ate was in the shape of a heart! We had pancake hearts for breakfast and personal heart pizzas for dinner.
It was a wonderful day of love, and it couldn't have ended any more deliciously... my entire family got together for a little fondue.
I absolutely adore fondue. The chocolate, the dipping, the candle-light... so romantic. Chocolate-dipped strawberries are my kind of heaven. There are tons of fondue recipes out there, but here is my favorite. It is so simple to make, and not too rich. We made 2 different recipes last night, and this one stands as my fav:
Easy Chocolate Fondue
1 cup chocolate-flavored syrup
7 oz. (1/2 can) sweetened condensed milk
Dash of salt
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
1. Place chocolate syrup and milk in sauce pan (or in fondue pot on medium setting). Heat and stir on medium-low. Stir in salt. Cook and stir 12-15 minutes.
2. Reduce heat to warm and stir in vanilla.
3. Warm in fondue pot and enjoy!
Some of our favorite morsels to dip are pretzels, bananas, apples, strawberries, vanilla wafers, nuts, angel food cake, and animal crackers.
