Fondue Party

Fondue Party!
My friends James and Marsha came up with this brilliant idea.
They decided to host a Chocolate Fondue Party!
As the host, Marsha prepared three different
types of Chocolate Fondue.
There was chocolate flavored with orange, chocolate flavored
with mint, and good old fashion chocolate.
We all supplied the goodies for dipping.
As you can see in the photos there was plenty of items to dip.
We had pretzels, heart shaped brownies, fruit, nuts, ginger snaps,
cheese cake, rum cake, peanut butter balls and pound cake.

The hosts were gracious, the food was wonderful
- who can resist chocolate!
The party was a ton of fun. As I recall there was
a lot of laughing - with each other and maybe
a little bit of laughing at each other. :)

Here is the recipe I used for the peanut butter balls.

Peanut Butter Balls
8 ounces softened cream cheese
3.25 cups powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup of mini chocolate chips

* I dipped the left over peanut butter balls in a
chocolate ganache which also makes a great chocolate coating.

A good dipping chocolate to use: Andies Mint Chocolate. They have the mini pieces in the backing section now with the rest of the choc. chips, and they are wonderful. They melt easily and set up quickly after dipping. I made Oreo truffles coated in that... YUM. :)

A Chocolate Fondue Party sounds like so much fun! I may have to have one myself soon.
