Chocolate Fondue: A Retro Mad Men Party?

Fondue was very popular in the 60s and 70s, and every bride received at least one fondue pot. I'm sure the new Mrs Draper on Mad Men did.

Fondue and Fondue Parties are making a renaissance, and although I've posted recipes for Chocolate Fondue with Toasted Marshmallows, Avery Aames' Chocolate Fondue with Cheese,  and Chocolate Caramel Fondue, there's always room for another recipe.

Why not have a Fondue Party during the next Mad Men episode. A few tips: You can make everything ahead of time: cut up the fruit, put out the marshmallows, and other dippers. Be sure and have lots of napkins on hand, it can get messy. Fondue pots are readily available at most kitchen stores and many hardware stores, and online, of course. Or.. search the attic or ask your mother. You're bound to find one--maybe even one that's never been used.

Here from a Retro Cookbook--Better Homes and Gardens Fondue and Tabletop Cooking-- is a two-fer recipe page: Chocolate Fondue and Chocolate-Nut Fondue.

Great idea! I went to a season premiere viewing party where the host served decade-appropriate cocktails!
