I absolutely love this time of year... the countdown to school being out is on (13 days left for us!) and summer is right around the corner.
With all four of my kids home during the day once summer starts, I try to create fun activities and treats that will make our summer memorable. One creation we absolutely love to make is fondue... there's nothing like having a bunch of friends over, providing a selection of things to dip and some fun flavored fondue to make great memories.
Our favorite fondue is chocolate... naturally. Who doesn't love a creamy, warm, chocolate dipping sauce for things like pound cake, strawberries, marshmallows, graham crackers and more? I like even more that I don't have to have an extra gadget around my house to make fondue. That's right! You can make chocolate fondue without even owning a fondue pot!
Our favorite summertime treats are s'mores, especially when we can have them around the fire-pit on our driveway. However, sometimes during the day it isn't feasible to break out the fire-pit and light up a fire, so we do the next best thing and make a s'mores fondue!
Creamy milk chocolate fondue, mini graham crackers and JET-PUFFED Mini Marshmallows... these three things make a great tasting s'mores fondue which is definitely a recipe for summertime dessert fun! Enjoy!

Stir in chocolate bars, Kosher salt, butter and vanilla. Continue stirring until chocolate has melted and mixture is smooth and creamy. Pour into a shallow bowl for dipping
To assemble, place 1-2 mini marshmallows on a toothpick. Dip into chocolate fondue, then place on a mini graham cracker (pressing firmly will poke the toothpick through the graham cracker, so it becomes a one bite treat.).
