Jun 9, 2014 6:47:00 AM
The 4th of July usually comes with fireworks, warm weather and a fun day to relax and celebrate the nation’s independence with family and friends. If you’re planning a 4th of July party, whether it’s a backyard barbeque or a more formal party, let your Sephra chocolate fountains make your event spectacular and delicious!
Cool Off With Chocolate and Berry Delights
Sephra’s strawberry fondue is the perfect way to cool off during a steamy 4th of July party. Its festive color fits in perfectly with the red, white and blue theme, and the pureed strawberry coulis can be run right through the chocolate fountain on no heat. Simply thin with water, and dip your favorite treats like pound cake bites and brownies or drizzle over ice cream sundaes.
You could also make Summertime Berry Parfaits by mixing mascarpone cheese, plain yogurt, brown sugar and melted Sephra white chocolate and alternate this mixture with layers of blueberries and raspberries for a delicious and festive red, white and blue treat!
Celebrate With a Trio of Chocolate Fountains
Another fun way to celebrate the 4th of July is with a trio of chocolate fountains. To keep the festivities going, use white chocolate and Sephra’s dye to make red and blue chocolate. Set the red, white and blue trio of chocolate fountains on a decorated table, and accompany with red, white and blue dipping treats.
A selection of fresh berries like strawberries, raspberries and blueberries take care of the red and blue. Add some banana slices and you can make dipping sticks layered with red, white and blue fruit. Cherries also taste delicious dipped in chocolate fountains.
Moist lemon berry pound cake (with blueberries and raspberries) is a red, white and blue dipping treat all in one. Marshmallows are also delicious options. You could also lay out a variety of cookies or have red, white and blue ice sundaes using the colorful chocolate fondues as toppings.
Chocolate fountains make a great addition to any celebration, and with the flexibility to use Sephra’s chocolate dyes that come in red, yellow, blue and orange, you can make any shade of chocolate you want. You could make bold red and blue chocolate or make a subtler tribute to the 4th of July with lighter hues.
As long as chocolate fountains are involved in a party, guests are sure to have a great time socializing and indulging in rich, decadent chocolate!
