Mini Campfire Chocolate Fondue Buckets – a fun little snack with pretzels, marshmallows and chocolate
Hey, friends! It’s summer holiday time at last! I have been waiting for the summer holidays for a few reasons – one, I hate school runs; two, I feel safer having the boys at home whilst Covid is on the rise again and 3; the boys are around all day to test my fun food. Today I’ve been making Mini Campfire Chocolate Fondue Buckets.
When I was little, we’d never heard of S’Mores. In fact, marshmallows weren’t really a thing we had until I was in the Scouts and I discovered roasted pink marshmallows and raspberry sauce. Since visiting Florida a fair few times, and experiencing fall and Hallowe’en over there, I became completely obsessed with pumpkins [especially Mickey Pumpkins], S’Mores and anything I can cook over a campfire. Eating outdoors is my favourite way to eat -if only the weather would play along here on the unsunny South Coast of England.
The idea for these struck me as I was caught between finishing the Teddy Bear S’More Pops and editing the photos for the Chip ‘n’ Dale’s Campfire Sing Along in Walt Disney World. My boys would make s’mores every night given the chance. I think they enjoy the toasting more than the eating in fact. Anyhow, I remembered the big old campfire at the Fort Wilderness Resort Event and decided to make these little fondue buckets and mini marshmallow and pretzel dippers. They’re like an upmarket version of the Nutella and Go! dipsticks.
Remember not to melt the chocolate until you’re ready to serve or it will set, because there’s no heat source underneath to keep it viscousy. And yes, despite what my spellchecker is saying, viscousy is a word for sure.
I like that the Mini Campfire Chocolate Fondue Buckets also mean each one of the boys gets the same amount of chocolate – we have one boy who inhales it, and one who takes his time – so family fondues need careful watching or poor Jensen will be chocolate-less. Haha.
So, enjoy your easy to make, chocolate fondue buckets – because everything looks better in a cute little container..and when it comes to backyard BBQs, on red and white checked tablecloths.. Haha. Recipe card is below!
