Chocolate Fondue

We were out at a pub in Clifton when I noticed on the menu they had chocolate fondue.
It came with chocolate brownies, pineapple, strawberries, donuts and banana. It was absolutely lovely!

I didn't eat it all myself!

English Creams from Fortnum and Mason

These yummy chocs are from Fortnum and Masons - they're called English creams and are rather yummy fruit fondant centres wrapped in delicious dark chocolate!

Fortnum and Mason are well known for their high quality teas and english foods.
So far we've had an orange cream, a pineapple cream and a mango cream. They're all rather yummy!
They were a gift from a company I work with and turned up unannounced just before Christmas!

EDIT: They were all absolutely lovely - very tasty!

Flavour your fountain

I've just been reading about some great ideas for flavouring your chocolate fountain.
When you're creating your chocolate mixture you can add in spirits and liquers.

Obviously if you're adding alcohol then you can't let children have any chocolate fountain so you'll have to restrict it to grown ups only. Which isn't a bad thing - the less sharing the better.

My top things to add would be rum, kahlua, and amaretto.
But you would have to consider who else was going to part-take. Only use one, else you'll get a horrible mix of flavours that'll cause wastage!

You could add in a drop of whiskey too if that is your favourite tipple.

Of course you could also serve drinks with the fountain and allow people to enjoy the flavours of booze and chocolate together.
