I think staying in for a special dinner is much more romantic than going out to a crowded restaurant. Even better still is creating a meal that is something more unusual. Fondue is a great idea for a quiet evening at home. I have put together a collection of fondue recipes, both savory and sweet, that would be great on Valentine’s Day or any other romantic day. Disclosure – I have been compensated by Foodie.com for creating this collection.

Did you find some recipes that sound irresistible? You can do a full meal of fondues or just an appetizer or just a dessert even. Here are some extra tips for creating a fondue for two dinner.
Fondue for Two Tips
- Fondue Pots
If you already have one, great! If not, they are fairly easy to find at major stores again these days. Also check thrift stores, I see them there all the time. Don’t forget the heat source, usually Sterno or candle, and fondue forks for dipping your food into the fondue.
- Specialty Cheeses
Some of the recipes call for specialty cheeses that you may not always find at regular grocery stores. Check your area for cheese shops. Whole Foods also has a great selection of cheeses. At any store that has these special cheeses they should have a cheese monger that can help you select the best varieties.
- Dippers for Savory Fondue
There really is no rule, you can dip anything you like. Ideas for savory fondues include breads, vegetables, meats, seafood, chips, etc. I like to keep these items a little larger in size. You can make them large enough to dip without fondue forks even.
- Dippers for Sweet Fondue
Again, no rules. Ideas include fruits, pound cake, marshmallows, cookies, large nuts, waffle bites, etc. For sweet items I like smaller bite size pieces and cubes.
Do you fondue? What is your favorite recipe in the collection? Does this sound like a romantic meal idea for you and your sweetheart?
