National Chocolate Fondue Day, In the News, and Enjoy

National Chocolate Fondue Day - Today is National Chocolate Fondue Day!

The word "fondue" is derived from the French word "fondre," which means to melt. The dish originated in 19th century Switzerland as a way to use up hardened cheese. It became popular for dinner parties in the 1950s, but the chocolate dessert version did not emerge until the 1960s.

Chocolate fondue is a wonderful centerpiece for a party. Traditional dippers include fresh fruits such as bananas, strawberries, and tangerines; small pieces of cookie or cake; and miscellaneous goodies like marshmallows and pretzels.

Celebrate National Chocolate Fondue Day by inviting some friends over to dip your favorite fruits and snacks into a delicious chocolate fondue!
