If you know me well, you might know that I tend to go through phases. For a period of time, I get hooked on a certain food, drink, etc. and cannot get enough of it. This period of time comes to an end, and soon the next phase begins. Always been like this, ever since I was a kid and got myself hooked on mustard for a while. Oh, good times…
So, what’s my most recent phase, you might be wondering? Well, I’m glad you asked, because this is the topic of my post today. Lately, I have become quite hooked on fondue, and not just any fondue, but chocolate fondue. Yummy! I cut up fruits, melt some milk chocolate, and I have myself a super delicious snack! Sometimes, I even add marshmallows into the mix! Oh, what a fun thing to do. Quite the versatile activity as well, can be done alone or in groups. But, very important to talk about, are the unwritten rules of doing a fondue in a group setting. Thus, I decided to make them not so ‘unwritten’. Here it comes, folks..
The Zoey-valuated List of FonDue’s and Dont’s
- enjoy your snack
- share all the food equally among all guests
- minimize the dripping when bringing your piece of food towards your plate
- keep you area as clean as possible
- have multiple pieces of food on your plate to avoid a lot of reaching
- keep stirring the chocolate/broth/oil, etc. in the pot to maintain the melted state
- share the cleaning up tasks
- intentionally steal someone else’s piece of food from the fondue bowl… finders keepers rule does not apply here
- double dip your fork into the shared pot
- participate if you’re sick
- put the dipping fork directly in your mouth
- leave your piece of food in the pot if accidentally dropped
Hope you found these tips useful! Couldn’t help but share this little clip 🙂 After all, my title did come from the amazing Kitty Foreman!
