Valentine’s Fondue Night: Fondue Date Night at Home

How to pull off a fondue date night at home, and enjoy a romantic fondue dinner for two (perfect for a Valentine’s date night)! 
Valentine’s Day date ideas sometimes feel overwhelming! All the pressure to head out somewhere romantic and expensive with a lot of crowds doesn’t always make for the best date night.
Remember last year when I had my breakdown with no Valentine’s plans and explained why Valentine’s Day is a like a high school prom? 

Romantic Fondue Dinner 

This year we actually chatted about it well in advance and decided to come up with an official plan. Then our plan turned into a romantic fondue dinner. We decided it would be easy enough to create a fondue date night at home, and want to share how to do it so you can make this romantic date night happen too! 

This may be the ultimate Valentine’s date night! A romantic fondue night at home creates the perfect intimate and romantic dinner for two!

All it takes is a little planning and a fondue pot to make it happen! 


Fondue Date Night Ideas

  • Make it a picnic!

    Fondue on the floor or on a coffee table is the perfect setup for a fondue date night at home. 

  • Create a Menu You’ll Both love

    You should definitely plan a cheese base and a chocolate base for dipping. I’ll share plenty more ideas below, but make sure to plan the main course and a dessert course. 

  • Get a Playlist 

    We have your back with cute love songs you’ll love to listen to on this date! 

  • Plan Decor. 

    It doesn’t have to be anything too fancy. But a few candles, a table cloth, and maybe a banner or centerpiece go a long way. If you want more help with decor made easy, try this trick!

Valentine’s Date Decor

To make sure the decor was cute and put together we turned to Minted to try one of their party packs. Their Valentine’s fondue set was perfect!

Seriously, they think of every detail, and they transformed our plain old loft into a pretty romantic space.

We’ve done fondue at home before, but this time I used my friend Tia’s recipe for cheese- and it was really fantastic!
We dipped Cajun turkey cut in cubes (ask your deli for a slice about an inch thick), artisan wheat bread, green apples, and blanched asparagus.

Fondue Love

Can I tell you how much we enjoyed this time together? Jacob had been traveling for an entire week and came home to me just hours before this date, it was wonderful to have a meal that takes some time to eat and to catch up in person.
Not to mention I had butterflies like it was our first date again and kept giddy laughing all night. I guess there’s one perk to business travel and time apart! The fondue love was flowing on this romantic date night at home

Last time we had a fondue date at home we were too full for dessert, which is like fondue blasphemy. We made sure to save plenty of room this time.
For the chocolate, we also used Tia’s recipe and we dipped angel food cake, pretzel rods, strawberries, and bananas.

  7. Hopefully the recipes were yummy, they have worked great for us! We are planning on doing this for our Valentine's Dinner, too! Unless I am having the baby, which I would prefer…but since I can't plan on that, I will at least have a cheesy and chocolatey dinner to look forward to! 🙂
