Winter is the time when chocolate fondue shines, and we are here for it. New Year’s Eve and Valentine’s Day are the occasions when everyone says, “Oh yeah, I have a fondue pot! I should use it!” It’s romantic and celebratory, plus who wouldn't want to dip anything and everything in a chocolate waterfall? It also elicits good conversation, like “You have chocolate in your teeth” and “Can you pass me another marshmallow?” Really moving stuff. Ahead, find out how to make our easy chocolate fondue recipe so you can go from thinking “A fondue pot? I will never use this” to breaking it out mid-workday for a sugary pick-me-up.


How to Make Chocolate Fondue

Chocolate fondue can seem intimidating, messy, overly fancy, and not something for the average home cook. But that really couldn’t be further from the truth. For starters, our go-to chocolate fondue recipe calls for only two ingredients: chopped high-quality chocolate or chocolate chips and heavy cream (plus a little bit of salt). You can use dark, milk, or white chocolate, though ideally not all three together. Oh, and you don’t even need a fondue pot to make it! You absolutely can use one, especially because it lends itself to easy dipping, but a saucepan will work just as well.

This NYE, Throw a Hangover-Free House Party

Hosting feels a bit like playing grown-up these days. The ordinary tasks involved in having people over—texting out an invite, deciding on a menu, making a playlist— remain, but nothing beats the relaxed, inviting atmosphere of a house party. Remember …

Hosting feels a bit like playing grown-up these days. The ordinary tasks involved in having people over—texting out an invite, deciding on a menu, making a playlist— remain, but nothing beats the relaxed, inviting atmosphere of a house party. Remember house parties? The kind with moody, low lighting and conversation that lingered into the night. We love them, with one caveat.

The one aspect of a house party that can remain firmly in the past is the hangover. “It used to be expected that if you have fun, you’re going to feel horrible afterwards. It was part of the deal, but fortunately it doesn’t have to be anymore,” says Helena Price Hambrecht, co-founder and CEO of Haus. “You don’t want the parties to end, but as you get older, you don’t really have time for the hangover part.”

How to DIY a Champagne Tower for Your Your Best New Year’s Yet

Let’s face it: even the most well-thought out and well-intentioned New Year’s Eve plans are probably going to have to scale back in some way this year. One day, we promise, you’ll be able to overpay for tickets to a NYE event, sipping watered-own cockt…

Let's face it: even the most well-thought out and well-intentioned New Year's Eve plans are probably going to have to scale back in some way this year. One day, we promise, you'll be able to overpay for tickets to a NYE event, sipping watered-own cocktail after watered-down cocktail to make the most of the open bar before midnight rolls around. We can also promise (with almost 100% certainty) that such a New Year's will make you yearn for the years you spent it cuddled up on the couch, eating frozen Trader Joe's apps, and drinking all the sparkling wine your little heart desired.

For now, though, your pared-down gathering can get a little gussied up. And by a little, we mean with minimal effort and maximum effect. What are we referring to? A champagne tower, of course. Is there anything more over-the-top New Year's than a champagne tower? No, no there is not. And good news all around: it's not very difficult to do.
