One of my favorite indulgences is dinner at The Melting Pot. The Melting Pot is a fondue restaurant, and while I am not wild about the meat course of the meal, the cheese and chocolate courses are to die for. My favorite chocolate selection is “The Original” which is is a milk chocolate fondue, swirled with crunch peanut butter. They serve you things like pound cake, cheesecake, brownies, bananas, strawberries, and marshmallows to dip in it. So, so yummy.
A good friend of ours had a birthday last week, and after a scrumptious Chinese Dinner at Seattle’s Snappy Dragon restaurant (BEST Chinese ever, by the way), we went back to our house for some chocolate fondue to celebrate Robyn’s 25th year! 😉
It was super easy to whip this up in about 5 minutes, and while I put mine in a fondue pot, reviews I read said that the chocolate stays melty even if you just put it in a bowl, so give that a try even if you don’t own a fondue pot. I served this with cubes of brownies, pound cake, strawberries, bananas, and Nutter Butter cookies.
Excuse the crappy Instagram photos, it was 11pm and I didn’t have any natural light to work with. 🙂
1 cup (6 ounces) milk chocolate chips
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup half and half
1/2 cup crunchy peanut butter
Dipping items, I used brownies, pound cake, strawberries, bananas, and Nutter Butter cookies.
In a heavy saucepan, cook and stir the chocolate chips, sugar, half and half, and peanut butter over low heat until smooth. Transfer to a fondue pot and keep warm.
