    I just wondered what you would serve with a chocolate fountain?? I finally found one that wasn't too expensive so thought I'd use it for my baby's birthday party. I'm sure I can find other uses for it after the party :haha: But I don't know what things people put with it ... Also, will it be ok to let my princess have a small lick of chocolate? It's going to be either milk or plain chocolate, and I think I read that babies at that age can have white chocolate - or maybe I imagined that?! She's going to be having cake too, so don't want to completely overload her with sugar!

    Fruits or marshmallows. I gave Omar a piece of chocolate on his birthday, once he licked his fingers he gave me a disgusted look & gagged :haha:

    He's 2 yrs but he still hates the taste of chocolate, candies & all sweets.

    fingers? :blush:

    fruit - strawberries, bananas, pineapple if it's not too expensive this time of year
    pretzels, pound cake

    She could have a little bit of chocolate. It's her birthday. Now if you start taking out the chocolate fountain every Saturday night, that might be an issue.

    Thanks all ... Another really stupid question, but if you chop up the banana how do you stop it going brown?

    :haha:

    No it won't. It's only a tiny amount, bananas are too sweet & with chocolate, no one will notice it.

    FYI on giving your lo chocolate... My daughter can't eat chocolate after mid afternoon or she will stay awake all night long! We've tried multiple times and have finally learned our lesson. It must be the caffiene in it? She can't even handle a small chocolate chip cookie. So some kids might have issues with the chocolate... Even if they love it!

    Thanks. The party is 11am - 1pm, so I'll let her have a wee bit - like a lick off my finger - early on. I'm not sure though whether we should be waiting til January, as that is when she should be 1 ... Just thinking that her tummy might not be ready for it, as she was prem?
