fondue for you • A Subtle Revelry

fondue for you

One last fondue treat before the week is through. A favor that I hope, will make your guests swoon…

Little miniature dishes of chocolate fondue, to take home and light up at leisure. Perfect for anytime you want to say, thank you for coming in a very sweet way!

To create these fondue favors- combine a small piece of chocolate, a tea light and a miniature candle bowl (mine are from Micheals) together. When giving the favors- place the chocolate, candle and note of instruction stacked inside the bowl. Top it off by tying with a pretty ribbon, a label and a small match to light the flame.

Download the guest instructions here.

Set out on a table with dippings to use, or send your guests home to experiment with their own melted selections. A sweet way to hand out a bit of thankful love.

PS. These favors were featured in the Style Me Pretty newsletter yesterday, where they made my day by describing our site as an inspiring swoonfest. How fun!!!

  14. […] Fondue parties have been making a comeback!  I actually own one of those vintage 70s fondue pots that looks like a regular cooking pot with an electrical cord.  The color?  Burnt orange, of course.  I'm thinking if I were to thrown a fondue party these days I would be more likely to do an updated version, inspired by these mini fondue favors by Victoria from A Subtle Revelry.  It makes a fun, interactive trinket that your guests will certainly enjoy and remember.  You don't even have to throw a full-blown fondue party for an excuse to make them; I think they would be just as fun at a bridal shower or birthday party too!  [how to make mini fondue party favors] […]

    Cool idea. Only change id make is to substitute the glass candle holder with the black liquid potpourii burners you find at dollar tree. But this was a very creative idea.

  16. What a great idea! A fun simple way to get every guest involved! I love it!!!!

    If the glass is held over the flame long enough to melt the chocolate, won’t it be too hot to hold with your bare hands?

    @ Terri Pike – I’m with you – that would be one hot hot hot glass to hold (makes the hairs on the back of my neck stand up just thinking about it) – it was the first thing I wondered when I saw it. | think this is not something practical or meant to actually be used… in which case I think the match isn’t needed (which I’m not sure is a very wise idea anyway since it can ignite so easy unintentionally with a bit of friction – like rubbing against something in a handbag or pocket, etc)

    You don’t need to hold the glass over the flame for very long at all for the chocolate to melt. We did it (and used it, for real). It never got too hot to hold. It’s just a little candle flame and a little piece of chocolate. A bigger flame would for sure make it more difficult:)
