Chocolate POTD

Jim & I wanted to try out a new restaurant tonight called The Melting Pot. It's a fondue restaurant & since I love both cheese & chocolate, I knew I couldn't go wrong :) The cheese part was okay.....kinda had a bitter taste to it, though. Plus I guess I was hoping for more things to dip in it. All we got was some breads, apples & veggies. But the chocolate part was HEAVEN! I ordered the Cookies & Cream Marshmallow Dream & it was soooooooo good! It was a dark chocolate fondue that they added some type of liquor & marshmallows to & flambeed it adding Oreo cookie crumbs on top. To dip, we had pineapple, bananas, strawberries, pound cake, brownie pieces, some marshmallows covered in graham cracker crumbs & oreo crumbs plus some cheesecake. I had to bring home some of their fondue bars because it was so good, but sadly, they were out of the dark chocolate :(

Earlier tonight, we did some shopping & I found my newest love while we were at Target:

Cherry Cordial Creme Hershey Kisses :) Talk about yummy! Every Christmas season, I will buy a couple of boxes of chocolate covered cherries & the funny part is, I don't even like cherries. But I love the cream inside of them, so I will pick the cherry out & eat just the chocolate & the cream inside, lol. Well, now I don't have to do that anymore because I found these. Now I'm just gonna have to stock up on them before they stop making them since they're a limited edition.

I'm off to bed to dream about chocolate :)
