Chocolate Fondue - Dipper Ideas?
I'll be going to a fondue party in a couple of weeks, and I wanted to bring something homemade to dip into the chocolate.
Any ideas? I was thinking of homemade marshmallows (never made before) or since I love orange + chocolate, either an orange angel or chiffon cake.
Any thoughts or other ideas?
Thanks in advance!
I like to bake cookies as a bar cookie and then slice into cubes. Gingerbread, biscotti and sugar cookies all work well for this application.
brioche is good when it is cubed
Ive used baklava and rugelach, plus fruitcake/stollen/panettone
while you said "homemade," I find fruits are much better dipped in chocolate than baked sweets.
The texture contrast and intense flavors will win you over!
Mandarin orange segments
fresh pineapple chunks
You could supply garnishes as small bowls of different chopped nuts (peanuts, pistachios, almonds, cashews, Brazilnuts), coconut, etc.
In addition to your homemade marshmallows, you might try the peppermint ones that are at TJ's now.
I'd also say pretzels and shortbread cookies.
On another thread, there's talk of a new bacon and chocolate bar, that sounds awesome. Maybe offer a few cubes of pancetta for those who want to try it? Might make for fun conversation.
I just bought stuff to make homemade marshmallows, but haven't done it yet, but I'm sure would be good with fondue.
How about those pretzel rods to dip?
