I was actually looking for an asiago fondue recipe when I found an easy, warm asiago dip recipe on the Betty Crocker website. Unable to locate a desired fondue recipe that would focus on asiago cheese, as opposed to a combination of cheeses, I decided to use the dip recipe with some modifications. It turned out wonderfully, and it was so easy, so here is what I ended up making! I used light versions of the cream cheese and sour cream with success.
This is a delicious, more "sophisticated" take on peanut butter for all ages. Little ones will love the fun of dipping their food and older ones will enjoy rediscovering the joys of a good PB&J. Add chocolate, and you have a desert gauranteed to please all taste buds, perfect for fruit, ice-cream, cake, etc. Make it vegan by using margarine, soy milk, and vegan chocolate!
I adopted this recipe from a member here at Zaar. This was her original description: "My daughter begged to take this recipe to school for her birthday party treat rather than cupcakes when she was six! The teachers asked me to make a separate batch for them the next time. We've been eating it every chance we get for the last twenty years. Given to me by a co-worker years' ago."
You don't need a fondue pot for this one- a crock pot works just as well! I love to dip things- a favorite is to simply take a small bowl and scoop some peanut butter and jelly into it, then take a bagel or some bread and break pieces off and dip it into the peanut butter and jelly. Oh, I'm off the topic as usual. But still, this is good!
Fondue is a great fall and winter meal. Warms you up right down to your toes! I love it after a walk in the woods on those chilly, fall days! I do mine in my little crock pot before I leave and then it is piping hot when I get back.
The best way to get your kids to eat their broccoli. This is great for every day,special occasions, an even large groups. My kids get so exited when they find out this is for dinner. There are six of us so I always double it.
I realize that a two-ingredient recipe is almost too simple to post, but this was so darn good and such a hit at a party, that I just had to post. Please do not omit the last important step - it makes this recipe a winner!
I adopted this recipe after Mean Chef (IHHDRO) left the site. His original comments were, "A simple party dessert which is a year-round opportunity to use the season's best and ripest fruit." My comments submitted as a review when I first tried it were, "Excellent chocolate fondue. I cut the recipe in half and prepared it with Ghirardelli Semi-sweet chocolate and heavy cream. Hubby and I ate an entire pound of strawberries dipped in this luxury while watching movies tonight." I have made this many times since for just Hubby and I, and for guests. It is a very good chocolate fondue.
