When you first purchased your home fondue fountain, you were tempted by the mouth-watering idea of dipping fruit and sweets into warm chocolate.  However, the delicacy doesn't stop there!  Your chocolate fountain is more versatile than you might realize, with four other ways to please your palette.

Chocolate Fondue: The Ultimate Indulgence

Sephra's home fondue fountain is perfect for serving Sephra's Belgian dark, milk or white chocolate for chocolate fountains. It isn't difficult to pair dipping treats with chocolate, from fruit like strawberries, bananas, berries and cherries, to sweets like Sephra's marshmallows, cheesecake squares and pound cake. It's also delicious drizzled over ice cream, almonds or macadamia nuts.

Sweeten the Deal with Caramel Fondue

Warm, gooey caramel fondue can break down anyone's resolve, especially when trays of apple slices, brownie and blondie bites, mini apple turnovers and chocolate poundcake bites are arranged beside it. Caramel fondue is also a delicious addition to an ice cream sundae and is perfect for fall gatherings when apples are in season. You could even invite family and friends to pick apples at a local orchard and then meet back at your house for an apple and caramel fondue extravaganza.

Say Cheese!

Cheese fondue can take on many variations and even combine more than one type of cheese. You can spice up Velveeta cheese with red pepper flakes and chipotle peppers for a tailgate party or mix two types of cheddar to go with brats and beer.

If you want a more refined fondue, melt brie with dry white wine and brandy in your fondue fountain.  Then serve white wine to drink and offer cubed crusty bread, apple and orange slices for a twist on a wine and cheese party.

BBQ Fondue for a Backyard Feast

If you have a family recipe for homemade BBQ sauce or just want to offer your favorite store-bought flavor, consider using your home fondue fountain to keep the BBQ sauce flowing. Sephra's home fondue fountain will keep the BBQ sauce warm without scalding it. Then, set up trays of grilled meat cubes like chicken, beef and pork so people can create their own kebabs. Also, BBQ sauce can be drizzled onto mozzarella sticks for a delicious appetizer.

Keep the Salad Dressing Cool and Flowing

Sephra's home fondue fountain can also keep liquids cool, making it ideal for holding salad dressing. Ranch fondue, for example, is more exciting than simple ranch dip. It can be drizzled over an assortment of veggies, like cucumbers, carrot sticks, broccoli, cauliflower and celery, as well as drizzled over salads. If you're hosting a luncheon, for instance, offering a selection of crudités plus grilled chicken salad, then ranch fondue will transform a simple salad into a sensational meal.
