Cheese Fondue + ?? For Dessert....

Island Girl | | Feb 19, 2010 02:07 PM

We have friends coming over tomorrow night and the main course will be a traditional cheese fondue with bread/apples/potatoes/cornichons and maybe some cooked sausage for dipping. While I love this as a main course I find it difficult to do starters and dessert since I know the fondue is very rich and filling. In the past I always fall back to the same menu - spiced warm olives, some prosciutto and an interesting cheese different to Gruyère and Emmenthal. No bread since we will be eating it with main. I also make a simple green salad as well as apple crostata for dessert. I really want to make something different for dessert this time but not with loads of cream or very heavy. Sorbets maybe but not my first choice. Soufflés are light but is it too much? I also thought of chocolate pots de crème even though they are rich - the serving size is very small. Dessert isn't usually something to cut the richness but is there something else out there? Thanks for any suggestions....
