S’mores. Our favorite autumnal and winter treat. After using your fondue pot to melt the chocolate into a thick sauce, take a skewered marshmallow and place above the heat until it begins to melt. Take the marshmallow and spread the chocolate sauce onto a cracker to create a delicious and naughty s’more.
