Valentine's Day is only a couple of weeks away and I've been thinking about all the yummy recipes that I can make for the Valentines in my life. Someone on the Weelicious Facebook page suggested making fondue, which I thought was a perfect idea. What better way to get your little ones (and not so little ones) excited about eating than to give them a dessert that requires dipping!
Fondue is simpler to make than it sounds and the only issue for me was the amount of sugar normally found in most chocolate fondue recipes. After a bit of trial and error, I came up with this recipe that is smooth, creamy and perfect for dipping fresh fruits into. Even better, your kids will get a boost of protein from the almond butter, so they'll get strong muscles to give you loads of loving hugs!
Chocolate Almond Fondue (Makes 3/4 Cup)
- 1/4 Cup Almond Butter (I use smooth)
- 1/4 Cup agave or honey
- 1/4 Cup Cocoa Powder
- 2 Tbsp Hot Water
Preparation1. Place all ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth.
2. Serve with sliced fresh fruit.
