Sharing Valentine’s Memories and Chocolate Fondue

As I write my last post before Valentine’s Day, I am sharing a recipe for Chocolate Fondue that I have shared before.  It is in the pamphlet that I received with my crock pot. You have so many different options of fondue ingredients and it would be something very easy to make for Valentine’s Day.

I am also thinking about Valentine’s Day when I was growing up and how we made the cute little mailboxes out of construction paper in elementary school.  We were always super excited to exchange valentine’s with our friends.  Today, as I go to my day care job, I am glad to say the tradition continues. Our kids will have a party this afternoon with all the wonderful valentine treats and share valentine’s.

Chocolate Fondue  for 4 quart crockpot

1 8 oz box semi sweet baking chocolate

1 8 oz box unsweetened baking chocolate

1 6 oz box white baking chocolate

1 14 oz can sweetened condensed milk

1 cup milk

1/4 cup blackberry-flavored brandy, or other fruit-flavored brandy.

Combine all fondue ingredients in dish.  stir well.  Cover and cook on HIGH for 45 minutes to 1 hour 15 minutes or until melted.  Stir well after 45 minutes.  Turn control knob to low.  Serve immediately or keep warm as desired.  Refrigerate leftovers and use as chocolate sauce.  Serves 4 to 6  ONLY THE HIGH SETTING IS RECOMMENDED FOR THIS RECIPE.

Use as a dip for fruit, cake cubes, marshmallows and cookies.

I think it is great to know that even though we have social media and so many other options of communication, kids are still exchanging paper valentine’s and making mailboxes out of construction paper.

Happy Valentine’s Day Y’all and thanks for stopping by.

  1. This sounds delicious! Thank you for bringing back sweet memories of the Valentine boxes we used to make in school. I don’t think children do that anymore. I think I enjoyed that more than receiving the Valentine cards! HA!

  2. Thanks Maxine – Glad you liked the Valentine Memories
