Sweets on a Saturday

To cap off our fun-filled Homecoming weekend (we even won the football game!) I planned a casual sweets affair on Saturday night. The football game was at noon so after we got back from that we prepared some fajitas then relaxed before chatting around some fondue!

We've made this chocolate fondue in the past but we wanted to try something new this time. And Patrick was in charge! Here's what he did (inspiration from this Williams-Sonoma Chocolate Fondue)

Chocolate Fondue
Place 8 oz semisweet chocolate chips into a microwave safe measuring with 1/2 cup heavy cream and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract; microwave (mixing intermittently and making sure not to burn). Before placing the chocolate fondue into ceramic bowl and in the fondue pot microwave the water to put into the base. All set for fondue. We used a fuel burner but it heated the chocolate fondue too much so with the heated water you wouldn't need the fuel burner.

We served the chocolate fondue with pretzel sticks, strawberries, and cubed angel food cake. And red wine.

This was a special Homecoming for us because the 09ers were honored as the fifth year reunion class! Wow ... how the time flies! What wonderful memories I have of my time at Carolina and even better friends that are still some of my best friends.

Five years ago

And now!

And for fun - here's the recap of UNC Homecoming 2013. Hope 2019 and the tenth year reunion doesn't come quite as quickly as this one did.
