Chocolate Fondue for Two ($19)


Everyone knows about Max Brenner, but by the time I was old enough to be able to afford to eat there, the idea of having chocolate cake with chocolate ice cream drizzled with chocolate sauce and a chocolate milkshake on the side had become unappealing, to say the least.

Chris and I both earning a decent salary for the last couple of years has made me complacent. I’ve almost completely forgotten how to feed two people on the budget of a single second year uni student.
