A Chocolate Indulgence Not Just for Kids!
This Is A Sponsored Post That Contains Affiliate Links
Kinder Chocolate is one of my absolute favorites! If you haven't tried this German milk chocolate with creamy milk center, it's about time! World Market sells a great variety of Kinder products in their candy isle, so you will find it there easily (also a great place to go if you ever crave amazing German pickles or need some easy access to picked red cabbage!).
For today's recipe, I used Kinder chocolate in the actual fondue as well as in the rich caramel-tasting, gooey blondies I made that you can use to dip in the fondue or devour on their own. To make your Valentine's Day even sweeter, I added some of the seasonally available Mozart White Chocolate Strawberry Cream Liqueur in the fondue - divine! And as if this wasn't enough madness, I am giving away one of the pictured candlelit fondue sets, fitting just under 7 ounces, so perfect for a romantic, little fondue for two lovebirds.. or besties. 😉 See below for more detail on how to enter this giveaway.
Enter for the Boska Fondue Set Giveaway
The Dutch company Boska made available another fondue set for me to give away to one lucky winner this week! I love it because it's the perfect size for a 2 person fondue appetizer (think cheese) or dessert (think chocolate), the cheese or chocolate can be melted in the ceramic fondue pot itself using your microwave, and it's super easy to clean up later!
To enter, head on over to my Instagram page tomorrow and follow the instructions on the post. Good luck!

Ingredients for Kinder Chocolate Fondue for 2:
- 5 oz Kinder chocolate, chopped up
- 1 to 2 oz heavy whipping cream
- 1 tablespoon of Mozart Strawberry Liqueur
- ½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- small pinch of sea salt
- Cut up fruit (I picked Strawberries, Kiwi and Banana)
- Small, hard pretzels
- Kinder Chocolate Blondies (recipe below)
- Whatever else your heart desires <3 (cubed pound cake, marshmallows, ...)
Ingredients for 16 Kinder Blondies (for dipping and enjoying later)
- 8 tablespoon (115 or 1 stick) unsalted butter, melted
- 1 c (215 g) dark brown sugar
- 1 large, cold egg
- 1.5 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- ⅛ teaspoon kosher salt
- 1 c (130 g) all-purpose flour
- ½ to 1 c chopped up Kinder chocolate
- For the Fondue, combine all liquids (starting with 1 oz of heavy whipping cream) and chocolate and microwave for 30 seconds at a time, stirring in between intervals, until the chocolate is melted and it's one, cohesive mixture. Add in more cream until desired consistency is reached. Lastly, add in a small pinch of sea salt.
- To make the blondies, preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter an 8 by 8 inch baking pan, preferably metal (cooking time will be almost twice as long if you use a glass pan).
- start by whisking together melted butter and sugar. Whisk in the egg, and remaining ingredients beating until everything is combined. Then, beat until the batter starts to peel off the sides of the bowl (about 40 whips, use an electric mixer if you don't have the arm muscle ;-). The batter should be pretty thick. Stir in the Kinder chocolate, and feel free to add nuts if desired.
- Spread the batter evenly into baking pan and bake for 20 to 25 minutes if using a metal pan. Adjust to almost double the time for a glass pan. Cool, then cut either into 16 bars or bite-sized pieces. Can be stored up to 3 days at room temperature.
