In a survey, more than 53 percent of seven to nine-year-olds picked strawberries as their favorite fruit. If more parents served them with chocolate fondue, we think the number of young strawberry lovers would rise dramatically. Fondue is fun, and nothing could be easier than chocolate fondue. No need to worry that you don't have a fondue pot or forks, chocolate fondue can be served in a bowl with regular forks.
12 ounces chocolate (Toblerone is our favorite)
1 cup (8 ounces) heavy cream
Whole strawberries (lots of them)

1. Clean strawberries and remove the hulls, Depending on the size of the berries, leave them whole or cut them in half. Ideally you want bite-size pieces of strawberries.

2. Place the strawberries in a serving bowl and set aside. Chop the chocolate into pieces and place it in a saucepan, add the heavy cream. Stir over low heat until chocolate is melted and the mixture is smooth.

3. Pour the fondue into a fondue pot or serving bowl. Serve with berries. Stick a strawberry with a fork and give it a hearty dunk in the chocolate fondue.

Fun tip
Did you know?: Anyone who loses a strawberry in the fondue pot must kiss the person sitting next to them.
