Chocolate Caramel Fondue Spread

The best part about summer rain storms are the rainbows that come out afterward! We caught one yesterday while driving to CL's family's house for dinner. That's good luck, right?

Chance and I kept ourselves busy during the drive. :)

Fondue holds a special place in my heart. CL bought me a fondue kit as a house warming present for our first apartment together. He surprised me on Valentine's Day with an enormous fondue spread of protein, veggies and cheese's surrounded by flowers and candles. AND for our third anniversary he took me to the Melting Pot for a surprise dinner. 

So when I was thinking of a special dessert I could bring to share with CL's family,  fondue came to mind! And not just any fondue... Chocolate Caramel Fondue. 

Chocolate Caramel Fondue
What You'll Need:
Fondue Pot
Fruits (I used strawberries and pineapple)
Rice Krispie Treats (homemade)
Brownies (homemade)
Marshmallows (cut in half)
Bag of milk or dark chocolate melts
1 jar of caramel sauce (1-1.5 cups)
1/4 cup of milk (I used skim)
Make your brownies and rice krispie treats. Cut into bite size squares once cooled completely. Cut a handfull of marshmallows in half. Cut your fruit into bite size pieces. For your fondue, heat your fondue pot to warm. Add chocolate and milk and stir until combined and smooth. Add in your caramel and stir to complete. Use the kabobs for dipping! 
*reminder, you can substitute unsweetened applesauce for oil when baking, i did for these brownies!!

This dessert was a huge hit! Everything is bite size so you can try a little bit of everything! I'm not a chocolate fan, but the caramel really made the dip special :)

Hope you guys find an occasion to make fondue special in your house too!
