Baked Sunday Mornings: Chocolate Peanut Butter Fondue

I'll be short and sweet...

This post was due at least 12 hours ago, but I saved making the Chocolate Peanut Butter Fondue for Hubby's and Son #2 outdoor birthday party this evening.  Son's birthday is tomorrow and Hubby's is Tuesday.  The whole family  came for dinner today to celebrate, including Stephy-Wephy who is due to deliver me a new granddaughter TODAY!  But no luck.  Maybe tonight?  I'm having more anxiety than Stephy.  Good Grief!  Much better than when I waited unpatiently for Santa as a kid.
Hubby is a dark chocolate man.  Son # 2 is a peanut butter guy.  So this treat represents both these terrific men in my life.

This fondu is like eating melted, creamy, warm peanut butter cups.  And, of course, we added Baked brownies to our platter as a preferred dipping accompaniment.

This was a fun recipe and was a big hit with all the "dips" at our party.  For sure, I'll make this fondu recipe again!

FYI:  Hubby chose a coconut pineapple birthday is delicious!  I'll post the recipe soon because I know that coconut pineapple lovers might like to bake this cake.


  1. I think this is a great party food! And the coconut cake is so pretty!

  2. Yes, Kris - please post the cake recipe! It's gorgeous. And your fondue station is impressive. I think this is a perfect party food & was too much for just the 2 of us. I chose to make up the Almond Joy Tart which it sounds like your husband would love, too.

    Best of luck with all the celebrating & a new granddaughter on the way!

  3. What a good-looking spread! It had to have been a successful party with all that yummy food! :)

  4. Your tray of dippers looks great. What a wonderful assortment. I'd want to try each and every dipper!!! :)
    And you cake looks and sounds fantastic. I'd love to see the recipe too.

  5. Looks so pretty! Love your cake too!

  6. What a spread of goodies!!! This is a great idea for an outdoor party ;-) The fresh flowers just make your birthday cake so lovely and special ;-)

  7. What a fabulous birthday cake and fondue - I really like the way this all looks so pretty and appetizing, the fresh flowers on your husbands birthday cake are such a nice touch. I love placing fresh flowers on and around the birthday cakes that I bake as well, always makes the cakes look even more special. Now I will look at you recipe for the lovely Coconut Pineapple Cake.
