Plated + Served: On The Second Day of Christmas…


 If my true love gave me Two Turtle Doves, I’d have to keep them as pets because I don’t know if I’d be able to prepare them. Mama’s not particularly fond of recipes featuring little birds (pigeons, quails, etc.).

However, I love Dove® chocolate, so this little romantic recipe will fit nicely into the “12 Days of Christmas” collection.

The melted chocolate makes a perfect fondue for dipping fruit. And if you wind up with any leftover (ha!), save it because it just might come in handy for some of the other  “Days of Christmas” recipes.
