The days are getting shorter and cooler, the leaves will soon begin making their colorful debut, and Halloween is right around the corner. When the mini-ghouls, ghosts, and Harry Potters make their way to your home this Halloween, be prepared with your home fondue fountain and Sephra's spooky kid-friendly treats!
Planning Delicious Treats for a Kids Halloween Extravaganza Sephra offers an array of mouth-watering recipes, but three come to mind this time of year. They are not only perfect for kids at Halloween, but two recipes are interactive and all three will keep hungry kids happy.The first is cinnamon fondue, which is the perfect fall fondue that will also work in your Sephra chocolate fountain. Its simple ingredient list includes sugar, corn syrup, water and cinnamon candy like Red Hots that you boil before adding to your fountain. Cinnamon fondue is the ideal accompaniment for apple wedges, sliced bananas and cubes of poundcake. This is a great way to get kids excited and interacting as they dip, eat and enjoy. The next recipe idea is Sephra's creepy bat cookies, which are perfect for a kids Halloween party, as it gets everyone involved. Simply use Nutter Butter cookies turned horizontally to resemble a bat and have small bowls of melted Sephra Melano dark chocolate ready. Several children can share a bowl of melted chocolate and take turns dipping the cookies into the chocolate and then placing them on a wax paper-covered baking sheet. Once the cookies are coated, simply refrigerate to set, then pull them out and let the kids add candy decorations and gel frosting. Finally, whip up a batch of Sephra's monster mix, which combines caramel popcorn (use Sephra's caramel fondue to make your own), rice cereal, pretzels, and peanuts and then toss it all with melted Sephra Belgian dark chocolate. To make this fun snack even more festive, add Reese's Pieces, candy corns and candy pumpkins.
Add Some Chocolate Fountain Fun to the Party Chocolate for chocolate fountains is a hit anywhere, especially among children eager to celebrate Halloween. Consider playing modern Halloween games, like hanging apples or donuts (more sanitary than bobbing in a common tub of water), where you hang apples or plain donuts on a clothes line and challenge everyone to catch one in her mouth. Then, an adult can slice the apple< and they can be dipped into the chocolate fountain. Plain donuts are ideal for chocolate fountain dipping and they won't leave powder behind. Sugar cookies shaped like ghosts and witches tie in with the theme and taste great dipped in chocolate. As long as there is delicious, Halloween-inspired treats and a few tricks to keep the kids on their toes, your chocolate fountain Halloween party will be a treat!
