What could be better than donuts for breakfast? How about donut fondue? At a family Christmas a couple weeks ago, I got out our new fondue pot and tested out a new recipe and it was a huge hit! It’s super simple, and while it’s not the healthiest breakfast (Come on, it’s donuts), it certainly was delicious.
For the fondue, you need:
- 1 package chocolate almond bark
- 2/3 cup half and half
Put both in the fondue pot and turn on Warm, stirring occasionally until it’s fully melted and mixed. To be honest, this was my first time using my fondue pot and so I kept turning it on and off every few minutes to make sure the chocolate didn’t burn.
After the chocolate has melted, spear the donut with the fondue fork, dip it into the chocolate, and then immediately dip into a bowl of sprinkles. I bought a jar of 4 different holiday sprinkles, and these green and white Christmas trees were super cute and festive!
I was definitely not surprised to see all the donuts disappear so quickly. I’ll be doing this again when I have people over! We also had a lot of chocolate left over, so we poured it onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper and stuck it in the fridge for a couple hours until it hardened. It turned into a sort of crumbly candy bark, which I’m sure may have been more sturdy if the half and half wasn’t mixed in. Nonetheless, it was a great way to use up leftovers and I don’t even regret eating so much of it.
You can do this for any holiday or occasion, too! For Valentine’s Day, use white chocolate instead, and red sprinkles. Hmm, I have great ideas just thinking about it! Do you have a fondue pot? Give me your best recipes!
