The word "fondue" is derived from the French word "fondre," which means to melt. The name "fondue" has been generalized to dishes others than chocolate in which a food is dipped into a communal pot of hot liquid.

Chocolate fondue as a dessert did not emerge until the 1960. However, other fondue dishes came about in the 19th century when Switzerland used it to harden cheese. Fondue became popular at dinner parties, and it is still popular today.

Almost anything can be dipped into a chocolate fondue. Traditional items include fresh fruits such as bananas, strawberries, and tangerines. Small pieces of cookie or cake and miscellaneous goodies like marshmallows and pretzels also make an excellent treat.

View the slideshow to see how one family enjoyed chocolate fondue using a variety of dippers.

Even though Feb. 5 is National Chocolate Fondue Day, you can eat chocolate fondue as often as you like.

Celebrate National Chocolate Fondue Day by inviting some friends over to dip your favorite fruits and snacks into a delicious chocolate fondue!
