12 oz white chocolate chips

1 cup heavy cream
4 tbl butter
Red food coloring
Sponge Cake (cut into cubes)
Purple Grapes, seedless

Combine the heavy cream and butter in a heavy saucepan over medium heat. When warm, add the chocolate chips, stirring constantly until smooth. Add food coloring several drops at a time until fondue becomes blood red. Transfer to a serving bowl. Arrange strawberries, sponge cake, grapes and pretzels in serving dishes with toothpicks or bamboo spears. Enjoy!

I want to do this for a Halloween party and people keep telling me I have to add oil to use in my fountain. You don't mention any oil, and yours looks great so I am assuming the recipe worked perfectly. But there is a little part of what they are saying nagging at me, UGH!

Hi Anonymous! Thanks for your question. The heavy cream and butter take the place of oil in this particular recipe. Once you've prepared the chocolate for the fountain, adding a little extra oil would be okay, if it still seems too thick. The chocolate in this fountain did actually start hardening up after being turned on for a while, which isn't out of the ordinary. That may have more to do with my particular fountain, though.

Would the same recipe apply if you were using a fondue pot instead of a fountain?
