Toffee Fondue

It’s the most wonderful time of the year!  It truly is, but I am reminded this morning that it is the sickest time of year too.  I love Christmas time and all that it means, but it does seem that my kids are sick more too.  I am reminded of this as I type with a 3-year-old curled up on my lap.  Her belly doesn’t feel good.  So it begins…

Traditionally when people think of fondue they think of 2 kinds; cheese and chocolate.  But there are so many other options.  Toffee fondue is a get a spoon to scrape the sides of the pan kind of good.  {Who does that?}  I like to think of Toffee Fondue as a “winter” fondue.  We are not going to use summer fruit, of course you can if you choose, but you won’t need to.  Apples and pears both taste great in here; both of which are widely available all year round.
