Date: Celebrated annually on February 5
Fondue fanatics take note: February 5 is National Chocolate Fondue Day so it’s time to light your fire and gather your sticks. Slices of fruit, bits of pastry or chunks of meringue pair exceptionally well with chocolate fondue.
Chocolate fondue is believed to have originated sometime after 1966 thanks to a Swiss-born chef, Konrad Egli, who is said to have developed the recipe in his New York City restaurant in an effort to help introduce Americans to the Toblerone chocolate-and-nougat bar.
To replicate the recipe combine 6 ounces of Toblerone with ¾ cup of heavy cream and 2 tablespoons kirsch, brandy or Cointreau.
