We are definitely headed into party season and I have found that my best Wilton entertaining tool is my Chocolate Pro™ Melting Pot.
This makes my life much simpler and definitely puts smiles on all my quests faces as they indulge!!
BUT what about a dip your own Chocolate Fondue Table??
This has always been a true success at any of my holiday parties (as well as a quick easy treat when a bunch of teenagers land on my doorstep!!).
Whether for kids or for adults, they all love to indulge. I always fill platters of fresh fruit, pretzels, marshmallows, krispie treats, pound cake & cookies for dipping. Almost anything goes well with Chocolate! Right??
As a hint if your chocolate is too thick just add a little bit of shortening to the melting pot and this will thin down your candy and make it easier for dipping.
What is great about the Chocolate Pro is that the base stays cool to the touch and has a removable, non stick, easy pour spout melting pot. This is so convenient as you can continually add additional candy melts to the pot as it disappears but also makes clean up quick and painless.
Also for parties I have used my melting pot as a fondue pot for cheese. You can prepare your cheese fondue following your recipe directions and then transfer it to your melting pot. This will keep it at a consistent warm temperature throughout the evening for all your guest to enjoy whether they come earlier or later. This is key for cheese fondue as if the cheese overheats it can burn or get very stringy.
Remember when doing a cheese fondue it is better to use a well-aged or moist grating cheese like Gruyere, Swiss or Cheddar (for a little kick I like to add Pepper Jack) so you get a smooth consistency. Again I fill platters with crusty French bread, veggies, pretzels and apples for all to enjoy at their leisure.
For my 14 year old daughter and I it is a given whenever we have friends over we get the chocolate pro melting pot out (whether it be chocolate of cheese) and then all of a sudden it is a party!!
