February 5th is National Chocolate Fondue Day.
The origin of chocolate fondue is unknown. Some say it was created by Konrad Egli for his Chalet Suisse restaurant in 1964/5. Others say it was developed to promote Toblerone Swiss chocolate. Both events did happen; however, chocolate fondue was found in print in a 1930’s issue of McCall’s. It probably dates back even further.
