Amaretto & Toblerone fondue is pretty much chocolate heaven in a fondue pot..rich creamy, and full of almond flavor. It’s perfect for date night!
I am a true child of the seventies in every sense of the word. Never mind that I was only alive for a year and a half of the seventies. Or that I am without a doubt a child of the eighties in every sense of the word, right down to the fact that I can recite John Hughes movies line for line, have a huge eighties playlist, and, well, my earliest memories are from the eighties.
So forget that child of the seventies thing. I may have been born then, but other than that my only connection to the seventies is fondue.
I really don’t remember why I became interested in fondue, but I got my first fondue pot (yes, you read that correctly. I have owned multiple fondue pots in my time.) eleven or twelve years ago. That first one was a Sterno pot, which I eventually decided was a little much to handle, so eventually I graduated to an electric model (mainly because Alton told me to), but I’ll tell you one thing I haven’t graduated from: Toblerone fondue.
This was the first chocolate fondue recipe that I ever made (I’d never even tried a Toblerone bar before making this fondue…and I can tell you that a Toblerone bar (<–affiliate link) is not even half as delicious as this fondue) AND I have never made any other type of chocolate fondue. The honest to God truth is that as many times as I’ve made chocolate fondue and looked for other chocolate fondue recipes, nothing ever sounds as delicious to me as classic Toblerone fondue. Until, that is, I splashed in a bunch of amaretto. Wow. Just wow.
In seventeen years together, Philip and I have never celebrated Valentine’s Day (we started dating the week before, and after that it just never caught on). However, if you and YOUR significant other do celebrate Valentine’s Day, this Amaretto & Toblerone fondue is pretty much a perfect way to celebrate. If you don’t have an electric fondue pot like this Rival fondue set that I have (<–affiliate link), make your fondue on the stovetop then pour it into your fondue pot. If you don’t have a fondue pot? A small slow cooker, like this Crock-Pot Little Dipper (<–affiliate link) will work too. Or just make it and eat it really fast. Whatever you do….MAKE IT!
