chocolate fondue platte

There are times in life where you have to bring a plate and there are a bunch of people (myself included) with food allergies. A fruit plate with a dipping sauce is a great way to bring a healthy-ish dessert to the table, with minimal effort, that looks amazing, and can please most food allergies.

iphone 038What to do when you are not making this at home.

I like to rock up to my destination with everything chopped and ready to go, and my sauce mixture in a sealed container, then I can just borrow a pot and bowl to make the dipping sauce when its needed (it only takes a few minutes) and its warm and gooey for everyone to enjoy.

What do you like to put on your fruity fondue platters? I would love to hear what your go to gluten free plate is.
