I made this for a Halloween party and it was delicious! The pretzels were the best of the dippers, followed closely by the apples and then the brownies/rice krispie treats. Half a recipe would be sufficient for most parties, too sweet to have a lot.

I made this for our New Year's Eve fondue dinner and dessert. We had butter pretzels, Pan Shortbread, marshmallows, apples and bananas to dip. I also had chopped chocolate to sprinkle on top. My family loved the bananas the most followed by the apples. They thought the marshmallows were over the top sweet. The next time I make this I'll probably do half the recipe just for 4-6 people. This is really sweet and a little goes a long way. Thanks for a fun dessert that my DD talked about for days.
