Barbecue Meatballs, Chocolate Fondue

Barbecue Meatballs is a winner! Just put meatballs in a slow cooker and dump a bottle of barbecue sauce on them. Cook on low for 3-4 hours. It's simple, and it tasted good. I'm adding it to my list of meals now!

I don't want this to be a super short blog post, so here's another winner recipe: chocolate fondue. It's for one of those small slow cookers. It's two cups of milk chocolate chips and 2/3 a cup of half and half. Mix them in a slow cooker. Cook on low for a half hour. Stir. Cook on low for another half hour. Done!

I'm not adding this to the recipe book just yet. I want to try again, with 3/4 cup of half and half. The chocolate was thick and overpowering; it could have used more of the half-and-half to make it smoother.

It definitely tasted good, but we made a big mess on the tablecloth, eating it. We got several things to dip into the fondue, like brownies, strawberries, marshmallows, graham crackers. My wife said buying the extras made it cost three or four times as much. That must be how those fondue restaurants stay in business; they buy the extras in bulk. I want to try the other fondue recipes in the book (caramel fondue, cheese fondue), but my family isn't fond of the idea.
