  • Mmm.. looks so lovely… but I can only imagine that if I had a fondue set for Xmas I’d use it at some stage between Xmas and New Year and then never again!

  • That looks delicious! I have a fondue set but I’ve only ever used it for cheese fondue. X

  • Looks like a promising recipe, but you made it with Hershey’s, seriously? That stuff tastes like wax.

  • ou yummy! i’ve never seen donut holes dipped in fondue before… that’s genius!

  • That cherry in the last shot looks to die for!

  • Awesome way to turn Halloween candies into a romantic dessert!

    The Way to My Hart

  • Yum! I bought a fondue set years ago that I have literally not used at all. I’m pretty sure it’s still in the packaging! I really need to get around to having delicious fondue!

  • Oh my god! That looks absolutely incredible! It looks just the thing for my birthday…

  • Ooo, fondue! I wonder if my parents have a fondue pot somewhere in the basement…

  • Christmas fondu was a holiday tradition in my house when I was in College. My mom decided that she had had enough with preparing big traditional meals especially since Thanksgiving was a not so distant memory at that point. She decided that we would have Christmas Fondu! We would always start with a cheese fondu, followed by a hot broth or oil fondu for a main course and topped off with a yummy chocolate fondu for desert!

  • Oh this looks perfect! I would try this with a different liqueur, maybe coffee or Irish cream (would need to make a vegan alternative, though), because those are my favourite flavours. Such a lovely idea, thank you for sharing xoxo

  • Fondue looks yummy, they are just brilliant for when friends are round and you don’t want to do anything fancy or attempt a complicated recipe 😉

  • I have always been afraid to try fondue. I feel as though I will burn the sauce and/or myself in the process. This is giving me an itch to try it though.

  • I love melted chocolate with anything, but I’ve never actually had cheese fondue; I’m sure it’s worth waiting for 🙂
    Your pictures look delicious, I’m craving chocolate just looking at them x

  • My husband thinks fondue is lame (he’s lame:)), but this would be such a fun thing to do for a girl’s night! And I don’t know why I would have never thought of using donut holes. Love that!

  • Amazing pictures, I love chocolate fondue!
    I should try this out…

  • I love fondue! I’m not too fond of dark chocolate, but I bet it would work great with milk chocolate.

  • This sounds and looks amazing! I am definitely giving this a try on our next date night in!

  • I love this idea. I inherited a never-used fondue set from my grandma, and this may be the perfect recipe to try it out!
