National Chocolate Fondue Day
It’s National Chocolate Fondue Day! The word "fondue" is derived from the French word "fondre," which means to melt. The dish originated in 19th century Switzerland as a way to use up hardened cheese. It became popular for dinner parties in the 1950s, but the chocolate dessert version did not emerge until the 1960s.
Chocolate fondue is traditionally a wonderful centerpiece for a party. Traditional dippers include fresh fruits such as bananas, strawberries, and tangerines; small pieces of cookie or cake; and miscellaneous goodies like marshmallows and pretzels.
Celebrate National Chocolate Fondue Day by hosting a virtual or-in person event with friends to dip your favorite fruits and snacks into a delicious chocolate fondue from home!
