Learn how Skinny Mom's Kitchen got creative with her Friday night fondue.

So now the question is what to dip in the chocolate. I was not really in a fruit kind of mood. I needed something a little bit heartier than that. That is when I decided on granola bars. Granola bars dipped in chocolate. Oh mama! Now that is what I am talking about.

I used Quaker Big and Chewy Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip granola bars for our fondue movie snack. They are 60% bigger than their regular bars, which mean more peanut buttery goodness, more chocolate chips, and more whole grains. I loved (and so did my kids) the peanut butter drizzle on top of the granola bars.

These were so delicious. A perfect wholesome option for a family movie night dessert! Not to mention incredibly easy. I had this entire sweet snack on the table within 5 minutes. This is my kind of dessert – especially after a long week of work!

I cut the bars up into bite size pieces so they were easy for little hands to grab and dip in the chocolate fondue. My kids had a blast dipping these Quaker granola bars in fondue and gobble these snacks right up. Of course, my husband and I ate our fair share as well. We can’t let the kids have all the fun.

Friday nights are always movie night with my family. My husband and I work hard all week and can't wait till the weekend where we can sit back, relax, and take in a fun movie with our kids. We almost always stay home because let's face it going out to the movie theatre with a couple kids can cost a small fortune. Plus, when we stay home we can all snuggle under a warm blanket and enjoy the latest tasty recipe I am putting together. I typically make a dessert to enjoy while we are watching the movie. There is just something about eating a sweet treat on a Friday night while watching a princess movie that makes life perfect.

For this particular movie night I was in the mood for fondue. You know, a bowl of luscious chocolate that you dip things in. Yep, it was that kind of week - one that required a bowl of melted chocolate. Everyone agreed. But honestly who would really argue with that.
