These Chocolate Dragon Eggs Have a Colorful Surprise Inside

Fondue + You = Skewer . . . Dip . . .Yum

On Friday, I caught a quick glimpse of Nigella Lawson on the Today show. She featured a Fall fruit fondue recipe so delicious looking I had to try it! Seasonal fruit (apples and pears) served with a delectable caramel fondue make for a simple but stunning dessert. This unconventional caramel sauce is quick, easy, and doesn't require sugar chemistry knowledge or a candy thermometer! All of the ingredients are kitchen staples except for the golden syrup. Since I was unable to find this common British product, I substituted a mixture of corn syrup and molasses.

Don't be disappointed if initially the cooked sugar and butter have a grainy consistency. Once the cream is added the caramel's texture will become smooth, rich, and sheeny. To try something new with fondue,

Ohh no no no! It's almost sacrilege to not have cheese fondue! I'm really partial to cheese. I can do a oil/meat fondue on occasion, but really, we have fondue on average once a month. Traditional Swiss fondue make with pure gruyere cheese and Kirsch. Okay, so I just had it Sunday night, and I'm already craving it again. LOL.

This looks delicious! I enjoyed some fondue at a friend's recent dinner party. Not something I'd normally think to make, but it was great, and I felt good because at least I was eating fruit for dessert.

I love every type of fondue! My friends and I get together every month or so and have an oil fondue with meats, veggies, and tempura batter. Sooooo good!

i'm usually partial to a cheese fondue thing, but caramel is so well suited for this time of year, especially if you're talking about apples and pears. i love this even though i'm not the BIGGEST fan of nigella. kind of like alton, i used to be a fan but i got over her since she doesn't cook in a style for me....
