If you don’t, then there’s a big hole in your life. You know, that void where you have never experienced the joy of dipping food into melty cheese or chocolate. Be sad if you haven’t been there.
But feel free to change your ways, and now! I’m attaching a warning to this recipe: you will eat it and not be able to stop. Be ready. Come with an empty stomach!
In my champagne brownies post last week, I mentioned that our New Year’s Eve is always a chill one. I’ve never been one to go out and party the night away. It’s so much cozier to stay at home, make good food, and cuddle with the man I love more than anything in the world, chocolate included.
We love to do fondue on New Year’s because it’s quick and irresistible. We start with cheese fondue and work our way over to chocolate. One of the most fun parts is creating a dipping plate for each course. Take a look at my newest video about how we do dipping plates, JAB-style. And be sure to check out the full recipe at the bottom after you watch!
But for now, let’s focus on the fondue itself. You know, the good stuff. The stuff I want to eat by the spoonful.
This fondue has a milk chocolate and peanut butter base. It’s important to add the peanut butter cups at the end as a garnish, or they’ll fully melt in. Some of you might prefer that, but I like to fish out little half-melted peanut butter cup pieces with my fondue fork. Or the champagne brownie pieces.
To be honest, the fondue itself is so rich that those of you with less of a sugar tolerance may prefer to stick to strawberries for dipping. But for the rest of us, these dipping plate components will make this a rich and unforgettable dessert experience. Here’s what’s on my dipping plate:
The aforementioned champagne brownies (pictured above and in last week’s post with video tutorial).
Chocolate chip cookie bars. I took 24 oz. of refrigerated cookie dough, pressed it into an 8-inch square pan, and baked until done. Then I cut up the bars in little pieces.
And these lovely blinged-out marshmallows. You make them by brushing marshmallows with water and rolling them in graham cracker or Oreo crumbs.
Maybe it’s me, but I find that fondue is incurably romantic. You share it with loved ones, and in my own case, I got engaged over fondue at a restaurant. So this is always the way I’ll want to spend celebratory date nights with Kenny.
Whether you’re experiencing fondue for the first time or you’re an old pro, up the ante this New Year’s with an unforgettable recipe. Creating a party at home is not a problem with this for dessert! Now that you’ve got the dippers ready to go, here’s the fondue recipe!
I fulfill many roles in life: wife, mother, teacher, everlasting learner.
This site is dedicated to one role that expresses my creativity in ways that I find consistently challenging and rewarding: baker.
Inventing new ways to enhance food, especially if that food involves chocolate or peanut butter (or both!), is a passion of mine. I look forward to sharing my ideas with you.

Okay, kids. Day Two of Fudge Week! Be sure to check out my buddy Gayle’s fudge on Pumpkin n’ Spice! We’re being all coordinated and thematic here. And today she has a fantastic white chocolate peppermint fudge!
If you’ve been reading Gayle’s posts, she opted to make her fudge this week with three different kinds of milk. I love that, and because we might be baking soul mates, I had kind of a similar idea. Each of the fudge options you’re getting this week from me involves a different kind of chocolate.

Labor Day has passed and I actually experienced a chill a few days ago. Conclusion? Time to bake with pumpkin!
These are pretty outside the norm. Their consistency is similar to a fudgy brownie, but the taste is pure autumn. Sure, I threw in some chocolate chips, but who could resist that?
In order to inaugurate the coming cooling temps, here we go with pumpkin chocolate chip bars. Let’s grab some spiced cider and run with it!

Folks, Passover Week is drawing to a close on Just About Baked. Come Wednesday morning, I will be back to posting regular baked goods. Thank the lord and all the powers up above! I can’t take much more of this…
See, I miss the forbidden foods. Like pizza. And sushi. Oh my lord, a week without sushi is a very dark time in my life. You can imagine how well I got through three pregnancies without raw fish. It was a horrible time. So I guess I shouldn’t complain about one week. Especially when I can have brownies!

I know. Not even gonna be modest here. It was great!
Oh wow, this looks like the ultimate way to end the holiday season! We often make peanut butter chocolate brownie sundaes, and this fondue reminds me of that. I wonder if I still have time to pull it together for dessert tonight? 🙂 Looks amazing!
David | Spiced recently posted…Hoppin’ John
Those sundaes do sound good! We need to take on one another’s holiday traditions!
I love fondue. I used to always make creme de menthe marshmallows to dunk in a dark chocolate fondue. I gain a couple of pounds just thinking about it! 🙂 This fondue looks magnificent. I love the peanut butter cup garnish. And I’m totally down for dunking brownies and chocolate chip cookie bars in it. I have a high sugar tolerance. 🙂 Happy New Year.

Fondue is definitely the way to go for those of us who love the sugar!
Hey, I never thought about this, great idea.

Thanks! I like to push my dessert limits!
Hahaha….what a coincidence! We’re doing a cheese fondue tonight! This, however, looks absolutely delightful.
Aria recently posted…Happy New Year!
I can’t resist cheese fondue, Aria!
Happy New Year Mir – I hope you had a great one 🙂
Oh my, I could so eat this right now and it’s 8am on a Monday. Cheese or chocolate fondue, I just love them both.
Dannii @ Hungry Healthy Happy recently posted…Comment on 100 Ways To Be Healthier and Happier This Year by Jemma @ Celery and Cupcakes
I love them both, too. They make the perfect meal together!
Fondue and I go way back! The first time I remember having it was while watching Billie Jean King beat Bobbie Riggs on the tennis court in 1973; I was all of 9. But I’m pretty sure our fondue was cheese and bread… Love your video, Mir! And love the goodies! This is gooood stuff!
