Oct 6, 2015 4:42:04 AM
Halloween is the perfect holiday to host a creepy, crawly chocolate fountain party. Chocolate for chocolate fountain is not only delicious, but delight everyone from kids to adults. Getting into the Halloween spirit isn't difficult with Sephra's home fondue fountains and a little creativity!
Kid-Friendly Halloween Chocolate Fountain Party
Since Halloween is associated with orange and black, you could either use white chocolate for chocolate fountains and dye it orange, or simply use milk or dark chocolate and offer an array of dipping treats that match the Halloween color scheme. Sephra's home chocolate fountains are easy to decorate, and you might consider using orange twinkle lights around the bottom and top of the chocolate fountain and use a big black spider as the topper.
For kid-friendly dipping treats, consider using orange and black sugar cookies in various Halloween-inspired shapes, such as bats, spiders and skulls. Mini-cupcakes made with vanilla batter, orange icing with a smattering of black sprinkles would taste delicious dipped in chocolate. A tray stacked with fluffy marshmallows will be a hit, especially is the kids have to reach through a spider web to get one. The food table could have a black tablecloth, and various insects could be scattered around the food trays. The kids can all dress up and will not only love dipping the Halloween-themed food into the chocolate for chocolate fountains, but will have a safe evening.
Adults-Only Halloween Chocolate Fountain Party
For an adult party, you might choose a creepy theme over a crawly one and feature a haunted house, complete with the haunted chocolate fountain display table. You could set your home chocolate fountain in a graveyard by using a black tablecloth and propping up headstones around the table. A life-size skeleton, perhaps sporting a black coat, could guard the chocolate fountain, or you might use a skull as the chocolate fountain topper. Of course, drape cobwebs around the headstones and maybe litter a few bones around the table. Liquid smoke can create a ghostly atmosphere around the table, and the haunted illusion will be complete!
Dipping treats could include piles of white marshmallows and bite size angel food cake against dark chocolate brownies and mini cupcakes with black icing, simulating the fight between the good ghosts and the evil ones. Blood-red strawberries and cherries are perfect for dipping into chocolate for chocolate fountains and remind guests of each ghost's bloody demise. Keep the lights low, and your creepy chocolate fountain party will thrill the palates and minds of your guests.
