Do You Fondue? We did!

8 Dec

Hershey Kiss Fondue Kit from ElizabethThe other day I wrote about my daughter surprising me with a Hershey’s Fondue kit when she got home from school. Well tonight was the night, we had Chocolate Fondue for dessert after dinner. Dinner was leftovers, which was simple and easy, so having a fun dessert like chocolate fondue gave us something to look forward to afterwards!

On my way home from work today I got some fun items to dip into the fondue: apples, strawberries, chocolate chip cookies, and wafer cookies. I have to say, there’s nothing like a chocolate chip cookie dipped in smooth, warm chocolate!! The recipe included in the box also had some dipper ideas.

The Hershey’s Fondue Kit came with two recipes, one for a Milk Chocolate Bar Fondue and one for Chocolate Lover’s Fondue. I looked at both to see which one I had all the ingredients for, and it was the Chocolate Lover’s Fondue. No coincidence there, right?!

Here’s the recipe:


2 cups (12 oz. pkg.) Hershey’s Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips

3/4 cup light cream or half and half (I used half and half)

1/2 cup sugar


1 Combine chocolate chips, light cream (or half and half) and sugar in heavy medium sauce. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until chocolate chips are melted and mixture is hot.

2 Pour into fondue pot; serve warm with Assorted Fondue Dippers. Makes about 2 cups fondue.

Assorted Fondue Dippers: marshmallows, cherries, grapes, mandarin orange segments, pineapple chunks, strawberries, fresh fruit slices, cake pieces.

Here are some photos from our fun dessert!

A Hershey’s Surprise for me today!

6 Dec

On the exact day that I announced my being a panelist on the Hershey’s Twitter Party Thursday night, my daughter Elizabeth came bounding off the school bus today with a big surprise for me: A Hershey’s Kisses Fondue Kit!!!!!!!

Hershey Kiss Fondue Kit from Elizabeth

Elizabeth could barely contain her excitement with her prize from school today!

Just getting off the bus was a huge ordeal, with the bus driver putting the box into a bag so that I couldn’t see it. She couldn’t wait for me to open it.

Turns out…she had saved all of her good behavior tickets from the classroom program her teacher runs, until she had 20 tickets.

Today was the day she was going to be able to choose her prize and she had no idea what the choices were going to be.

She was soooooo excited when she came home to show me what she chose and now….we can’t wait to fondue!!! Just in time for the Hershey’s Twitter Party on Thursday night!

Even the forks say Hershey’s on them!

The forks have the Hershey's Kisses label, just like the little paper label on the real thing!

The "Kisses" label

The kids loved this Kisses Label on the fondue kit.

Exciting News! Twitter Party Panelist!!

6 Dec

Guess what? On Thursday night, that’s right… THIS Thursday night, December 8, 2011, I’ve been asked to be a panelist on a Twitter Party with HERSHEY’S and the Mom It Forward blog as part of their GNO (Girls Night Out) Twitter Party events. I’m very excited! I’ve been at a Twitter Party before (as “at” as you can get, sitting on your laptop) but I’ve never been asked to be a panelist before.

I’m not sure what to expect other than lots of fun tips about holiday baking and lots of recipes to share, so if you don’t have a Twitter name yet, go and get one and RSVP at Mom It Forward for the party! Of course, my Twitter name is @WholeBagofChips!
See you then!
