This item was not a salt caramel; but who wouldn't want their own personal serving of chocolate fondue for dinner? Sign me up. If you happen to be in Vancouver, British Columbia, near the Convention Center, downtown, I recommend a visit to Mink Chocolates cafe/shop. Thank you to Kate at Mink for her help.

Mink offers two different types of chocolate fondue: traditional with fresh fruit, and a second, more elaborate S'mores version (with a small grill to toast marshamallows). I chose the former, with 1/2 dark and 1/2 milk chocolate fondue suspended over a small lit candle, and served with cut fresh apples and bananas, and marshmallows (substitute for pound cake).
