We awoke this New Year's morning to the happy sight of long awaited snow. We thought it was the perfect setting for our family to bring in the New Year with a wintry hike through what we call, Mellencamp Woods.
It was a great opportunity to break out the, hardly ever used, fondue pot. I picked up some fondue books from the bookmobile and found three fondue recipes for our dinner.
The second course was an oil fondue and for it we had marinated lime chicken and breaded cornmeal shrimp. I also made a mango salsa and a honey dill sauce for dipping.
The third and final course was a chocolate fondue made with bittersweet chocolate, cream and hazelnut liqueur. For this fondue we had angel food cake, strawberries, pineapples, marshmallows, and bananas. I also toasted coconut, pecans and hazelnuts for toppings. Yum!
