  3. Pour the caramel into the center of the chocolate mixture. Do not stir.

Melt milk chocolate mixed with a touch of heavy cream in the microwave or over a double boiler. Stir frequently and make sure not to burn!
You may want to heat your caramel for a few seconds so it is smoother. Then add it to the center of the chocolate in the fondue pot.
Here's the fun part! Add the rum then carefully light with a long lighter or long match. 
Let the flame burn out or stir to combine and put the flame out. Finally add the pecans and you're ready to start dipping!
My favorite dippers at home are marshmallows, strawberries, and cookies. Be creative: you can dip all sorts of fruits, candies, cookies, and sweet treats.
 Flaming Turtle Fondue at The Melting Pot Houston is delicious and entertaining!
 The fantastic dessert dippers are my favorite part!

  1. I just visited the melting pot for the first time a few months ago and the place is absolutely incredible. Though it was pricey I didn't mind cause everything tasted fantastic. I said at the beginning that I would not come back cause of the price but by the end I was already thinking of when we could go back again...!

  2. Oh my goodness! this looks awesome! My kiddos would love this so much...and maybe I would share with them...hehe

  3. These look very nice...I made them for my niece birthday last December. Kids just loved them.

  5. This one is a keeper! Used for our office party. My kids loved it! Excellent with bananas, strawberries, pineapple!

  6. Making sweets requires high-quality pots and pans because it is a very delicate process. In the past, I’ve had success with using best Japanese rice cookers to prepare chocolate sweets. So if you want food of great quality you might consider using those.
