You have this great idea to avoid the crowds and stay in for Valentines Day. You also thought of a romantic dinner for two with one of our candle light raclettes or with a raclette grill. But Valentines Day needs chocolate! What better way to end a romantic raclette dinner with a candle light chocolate fondue? Who doesn't like fresh strawberries, dipped in chocolate? Or try it with slices apples, raspberries, pieces of fresh pineapple, or sliced pears?
And the best thing: It's super easy. Here is the recipe:
Slowly melt 8 oz. of chocolate in a double boiler, while stirring, add about 1/3 cup of whipping cream and (optional) 2 table spoons of brandy or cognac. When liquid and smooth, transfer into the chocolate fondue mug and start dipping your favorite fruits into the chocolate. You can melt the chocolate chips directly in the mug, it just takes a bit longer.
