Easy Irish Cream Chocolate Fondue

Chocolate fondue is an easy entertaining option for the holidays, using just a couple of easy ingredients – especially this easy irish cream chocolate fondue.

Dish Count :: 1 Sauce PanEasy Irish Cream Chocolate Fondue - Perfect for your holiday get together - www.countrycleaver.comChristmas is coming in hot, friends! I hope you are all gearing up, getting Christmas lists written down, unpacking all of the finery and hanging up that garland because it’s here to stay… well, at least for the next 25 days. It’s the time to bring good cheer, and chocolate to the table and celebrate those around us. Hooray, us! And I for one, love getting together with my friends and family, and friends who are as close to family as family can be to just spend time together. It’s really what makes the holidays most special to me. And hanging out in my bunny slippers, curled up with Ben and Huck. Easy Irish Cream Chocolate Fondue - Perfect for your holiday get together -

But to help make the holidays special, and more nutritious to others, ADA Mideast is hosting their 2nd annual Milk Drive to give kids the nutritious start to the holidays, and new year that they need. Milk is one of the most requested items at food banks, but one of the least provided items, because of its perishability.

Milk and dairy are critical building blocks to a healthy body, and what better time is there to bring good cheer than to ensure that the children around us grow strong and healthy?

More than 6 Million servings of milk have been donated so far, but that is not enough. YOU CAN HELP! Please click, and “Like”, and comment on all of the photos on this year’s ADA Mideast’s FB Cooking Together To Give Gallons page where 25 cents, or one serving of milk, will be donated to the Great American Milk Drive.  That is one way to give these kids a healthy, and white Christmas!

And please be sure to join my dairy loving friends and myself on Twitter, for each guest an addition $1 will be donated to the Great American Milk Drive. Keep that good stuff flowing this holiday season. I can’t wait to chat with you there! ADA_GiveGallons_TwitterParty_2015_graphic-600x600

    There’s not much better than a homemade fondue! This looks so divine. I mean when else is it OK to basically drink melted chocolate?!
