Happy Valentine’s Day and Peanut Butter Chocolate Fondue

Those of you who have been following this blog know that I have embark on a progessive blogger competition called Dessert Wars. Last month’s theme was Going Nuts with Nutella and though I did not win the competition, I had fun with it. Thanks to all of you, my entry Pasta con Nutella was very popular. It was my first time using Nutella in a dish and I was floored by the reception of the post as my page view for the day exceeded 1,100! Congratulations to January’s Dessert Warrior, Heather of Girlichef and the Runner Up, Xiaolu of 6 Bittersweets! Check out the awesome prize package at the end of this post.

February’s theme is Dark Chocolate and Hearts, perfect for Valentine’s Day. I saw these Cherry Ju Ju Hearts at the grocery store and could not resist getting some. Then I went to Target and found these marshmallow hearts. How could I pass these up? Marshmallows are perfect for fondue…dark chocolate fondue! I recently made a Cheese Fondue but it has been a while since I made chocolate fondue. It’s Valentine’s after all, and I wanted to make something with lots of hearts for my honey. ;)

Peanut Butter Chocolate Fondue

This recipe is for two but you can certainly double it up for the family. I used chunky peanut butter to give the chocolate sauce a little crunchy texture. You could use creamy peanut butter if you prefer a smoother texture.

    Hi. Chocolate Fondue is my fav. Especially with the strawberries. Makes me drool. Next year I might serve it on Valentine’s Day if I can find the heart shaped mashmallows. Haha.

No special treat for him this year – though I think he expects it, since his wife is a food blogger LOL My bad! I’m sure your sweetheart will love this!

    Happy Belated Valentine’s Day, Biren! You have made my two favourite sinful things to eat by combining them together – what a great idea for a fondue. Coincidentally, at the weekends, I just found the fondue set that was given to me years ago, so this is a good omen that I must made this VERY SOON….

    • Biren says:

      Thanks DongXing! Good for you for finding your fondue set. Fondues are fun and chocolate fondue is such a treat. You may also want to try cheese fondue if your kids love cheese.

    We had chocolate fondue at our wedding. Too bad it was the wrong time of the year for heart shapped marshmallows. Looks like a fun fondue!
