Chocolate Fountain

Recommended Posts

Ty is invited to a birthday party this coming weekend. In lieu of a cake they are having a chocolate fountain to dip fruit and marshmallows. I checked out the chocolate the mom said she was going to use, and Ty can't have it (there's a may contain disclaimer AND it's from a bulk bin).

What kind of chocolate can be used? Could I provide her with Hershey's Chipits chocolate chips? Would they work?

Thanks in advance.

Here is an awesome fondue recipe that is SUPER easy to make. I make mine in the microwave. You could just send this with him and let him dip the fruit and marshmellow into it. It is HEAVEN!!

Oh, I always wanted to be around one of those chocolate fountains! Do you think they would let me go to the birthday party too? :lol:

Do you get the idea that I'm a chocoholic? :lol: Yummmmmmmmm

It is SO good.........spoonworthy (eating it directly with a spoon, no dippers needed). It also makes a great icecream topping. Now I am craving it.....lol

Just curious how the birthday party went. What did you end up doing to handle the fountain? Find any gluten-free chocolate for it?

I got the mom Hershey milk chocolate chips and she mixed that with a bit of canola (I think) to get it to flow. I provided them with gluten-free animal crackers and pretzels and they provided fruit. Then when it was time for cake, she used a ladle or big spoon to take out chocolate and pour it over the cake with candles so there wouldn't be any cake crumbs in the fountain. Obviously, Ty didn't have any cake but at least he was able to have more chocolatey stuff since she avoided contamination.

It was a busy day. We met the birthday boy's dad and sister at the arena and they took him home at 3pm. Then they went down south to Laser Tag, then back to the birthday boy's house for pizza. (Ty took his own gluten-free pizza crust and pepperoni, they had safe sauce and cheese). Then chocolate fountain, open presents and assorted goofing off. They finally went to sleep about 20 to eleven, and I'm sure it was a big disappointment to Ty getting up at 7 this morning for hockey. He went to the game (his team won 9-1 :o ) and then he went back to the party for some backyard hockey and more goofing off until 11.

He had lots of fun and they were pretty careful, I think, so a good time was had by all. Actually, on the way from hockey back to the party Ty said, "I'll bet Dad and Walker had Domino's last night and went to McDonald's before practice this morning." I asked why he thought that and he said, "Because I was on a sleepover, so they wouldn't feel bad." He's right. They did. :ph34r:
