There's no better way to perk up a dull day than to indulge in some good chocolate.
Mum bought me a adorable little tealight chocolate fondue set last Christmas and I haven't had a chance to use it. Until a few days ago when I was just craving for chocolate.
It might not be much, this fondue set is more like a novelty really - it looks like a toy! or some aromatherapy kit. Anyhow, it didn't stop me from chopping up some dark chocolate, heating it up in a pot and pouring it into this porcelain bowl to dip bananas with.
I know the proper fondue should have a more liquid-like chocolate 'soup' but I didn't want to add any cream or butter so I just used pure chocolate. It's quite okay; a little thick but hey I love it this way. Chocolate brings me immense joy. Haha. it's good.
Maybe if I have the money, I'll invest in a proper fondue pot someday. Saw a gorgeous one some time ago but guess how much it costs? $1049! It's by Stelton and it's damn sleek and beautiful. The whole set has this rotating round table contraption where all your cut up fruits or meats (if you're doing a cheese fondue) will be placed and the guests won't need to get up to reach for the other end - they can just rotate it! Amazing.
You know, all this hankering for 'to-die-for' kitchen gadgets and contraptions is just so making me want to work hard and save up for that fantastic kitchen of mine which will hold everything I need... i'll be patient and continue persevering till it becomes actual reality! You bet I will! I ain't giving up just yet...
