Groovy fondue titillates the senses

Love, sex, drugs and fondue were just some of the themes that bounced around in the ‘70s.

Keep Halloween goodies drug-free yet psychedelic with a colorful array of exotic fruits drenched in warm caramel fondue.

This recipe is practical, leaving lots of time to give a little love, do a little dance and get down all night.

Chop up the fruits. Microwave caramel, half and half, and butter until caramel starts to melt. Remove the mixture from the microwave, and stir in vanilla extract until smooth. Mix in hazelnuts of desired. Transfer smooth mixture to the fondue pot, which should be lit. Skew fruit, drench in caramel and savor.

Caramel Fondue:
2 bags of Kraft caramels (22 ounces)
1 cup half and half
1.5 tablespoons butter
1.5 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 tablespoons finely chopped hazelnuts (optional)

Aloha! I am the Features editor here at the Northern Light. I come from the sultry sands of Hawaii and I was raised in ice-ridden Anchorage. I have heaps of family and friends in town that I grew up with. There is always a function or party and I am never bored. I am a senior pursuing my BA in Journalism/Communications with a minor in Business Administration. I have not declared which path to take after graduation as I live day by day. My favorite piece I've written was for True North magazine, skimming the subject of contemporary versus traditional Polynesian tattoo. I am like a restless nomad always moving and traveling. My favorite excursions include Boston, New York, Florida and several Pacific Islands. If you see me off campus, I am never alone.
