Chocolate Fondue

 Last week we had 4 snow days...or 4 days with NO school.  That obviously just wasn't enough...so today is a snow day also.  So that makes 5 days to make up...and there are only 2 make up days on the calendar.  Oh well.  What do you do?  Too bad it feels like 0 degrees outside so playing in the snow just isn't fun!  I guess we are just going to have to bake!  Which I fully plan on doing!

Now on to the fondue.  Valentines is coming up and nothing is more romantic than chocolate:)  I only had a few things to dip in chocolate and I have to say my favorite was granola bars.  So make sure you have a bowl full of them:)

 Yeah...I don't blame you if you lick your screen...I kinda want to do that also.

Why not make a Smore out of them also:)  You might as well!  Just make sure you make this for your Valentine!  Some ideas for dipping:
marshmallows
granola bars
graham crackers
strawberries
bananas
cookies
cinnamon bears
shortbread
pretzels
pound cake
angel food cake

Chocolate Fondue
recipe from my fabulous mother-in-law!!

1 can (14 oz.) sweetened condensed milk
1/2 c. heavy whipping cream
1 tsp. vanilla

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Combine chocolate morsels, sweetened condensed milk, whipping cream and vanilla in bowl; stir.  Bake 10 minutes.  Remove from oven; stir until smooth and put in your fondue pot.  Dip until your hearts content:)
