Dark Chocolate Lentil Balls

It's sunny and so cold in Ottawa today. I don't feel like going to the grocery store but I have to because my son is coming to visit us this week. He is doing his Masters at Queen's University and next week is Reading Week. I can't wait to have all my children home. We will celebrate Valentine's Day and my husband's birthday this week. On family day I will make Ricardo's Chinese Fondue, it's so good. I might make my Best Meat Lasagna for Valentine's Day. For dessert I think everyone will enjoy a chocolate fondue. This time I will make it with Toblerone Swiss Milk chocolate. It's so easy to make, all you have to do is melt the chocolate with cream. We fight over bananas and strawberries when we have chocolate fondue.
