Cupcake Fondue | WEEKEND WIND UP #53

Two days ago was the beginning of carnival season in Germany.

Over the next few days and months the number of parties and get-togethers will increase so I thought it would be the perfect time to share an idea for the perfect party dessert.

Have you ever heard about the cupcake fondue?

Super-easy yet super-delicious and a dessert that easily can be turned into a fun activity for all of your guests!

Make a batch (or two or three, like I did) of plain miniature cupcakes (without frosting or icing or any kind of topping).

Then arrange marshmallows, colourful sprinkles, chocolate sprinkles and whatever else you can imagine to put on top of your cupcakes in small bowls on the table.

Melt some chocolate, add some cream, stir well and fill the mix in little bowls which you place on top of tea warmers.

Give a little fork to each person participating in the cupcke fondue and tell them to dip their cupcakes and decorate them with whatever they please.

FUN!

By the way, I made my cupcakes with 125 g butter, 125 g sugar, 2 teaspoons vanilla sugar, 2 eggs, 250 g plain flour, 2 teaspoons baking powder and 125 g milk, but you could also use this recipe which is fairly similar.

How Sweet It Is, another one of my favourite food blogs, has another great recipe you could use.

For decoration you could also use shredded coconut, peanuts, walnut halves, m&m’s/smarties, various sprinkles, chocolate chips, mini cookies… everything that’s small and sweet, really.

  1. Haha, Bella, I think it would also make a great party motif for girls my age. At least for me it would. For the main course, you could have a “real” fondue with a pot of hot oil in which you cook little pieces of meat and in another pot you could have a Swiss cheese fondue… and then cupcake fondue for dessert. Perfect.

  2. Sabrina, I have never heard of cupcake fondue but let me tell you that you had me at cupcake! I’m all for dipping mini cupcakes in melted chocolate, sprinkles and what not! Bring it! I think this would make for a great party motif for preteen and teen girls. How I wish I was that age again!🙂
