Chocolate Fondue


12 oz chocolate chips or chocolate bars (this year we used a gigantic Hershey bar our friend’s gave us for Christmas)

fruits (we love berries, oranges, bananas, apples)

pretzels, soft or hard (we even sometimes dip our pretzel rolls)

angel food cake

whatever else you love slathered in chocolate

Put chocolate in a microwave safe bowl. Put in microwave for 1 minute, then stir. Add shortening. Heat up for another 30 seconds, stir. Continue heating and stirring in 30 second intervals until your chocolate is nice and smooth. You can also do this in a double boiler on the stove.

Load your plate up with tasty food and dip it in the smooth chocolate to your heart’s content!
