Hiking Chocolate Fondue

The perfect way to end a long day hiking, this chocolate fondue is a balance between easy, healthy, and tasty.

Some popular examples of items to dip into the chocolate fondue are provided such as dried and fresh fruits, along with cake and marshmallows. This list can be altered to reflect your likes and distance and duration of the hike, e.g raspberries are unlikely to last more than a day.

The cream may not be the first thought when thinking of when hiking but it is easy to bring a small container that is frozen or there are heat-treated creams that can be stored at room temperature.
