These days it is hard to make plans as I am hoping any minute now we are in a hospital holding our little girl. I know our near future holds a significant amount of weekend “in” nights feeding a little babe, rocking her to sleep, changing diapers and more diapers and trying to catch some sleep in between all of that. I do not see hot date nights out with the hubby in my mirror ball. Though, we may be seeing the inside of our four walls a little more, it does not mean every weekend night should be filled with the same monotonous activities.
This weekend we turned our usual game night festivities with this couple into a yummy fondue night. We usually do not eat a large dinner before game night as lots of snacks are involved throughout the evening, but boy was I glad I skipped dinner this night!! This was such an easy, creative idea that can be whipped up in less than 10 minutes.
What you will need:
- chocolate melts – we used these melts
- crunchy peanut butter
- dippers (see ideas below)
What you will do:
- melt chocolates in fondue pot OR to make it easier melt in the microwave!!
- add in a dapple of peanut butter, to taste
- banana slices
- pineapple chunks
- apple wedges
- graham crackers
- cake cubes (pound cake, angel food cake, red velvet cake, cheese cake)
- brownie cubes
- pretzel sticks
- donut holes
- cookies (shortbread, Oreos, biscotti)
Dippers can be almost anything in your cupboard or refrigerator. Raid what you have and be creative! If you always have a little stock of chocolate melts, this is an “in” date night idea you can pull together almost any night you are looking to spruce things up.
^^Love this girl!! All pictures taken from her.
