It’s not a secret! I LOVE chocolate. I can do without candies, gummies, sour keys…..but chocolate, I LOVE!! For my staggette many years ago…too many to mention, we went to the Chocoholic Bar at Sutton Hotel in Vancouver. That’s right…a buffet of nothing but chocolate. My daughter loves chocolate just as much as I do and recently I decided to put together my own version of a chocoholic bar for her.
I wanted everything to be tasty and decadent…a feast of chocolate. But I also wanted everything to look pretty. My jumping off point was some square paper plates that I found at Superstore. That set that colour palette…tiffany blue, apple green and sunny yellow! I found candies and flowers keeping with the theme!
Next was the menu…besides the color-coordinated candy corn, gummy frogs and berries, M & M’s and jellybeans…we needed chocolate!!
Chocolate Buffet Menu
Chocolate fondue with assorted fruit, pretzels, handmade marshmallows and cream puffs
Crepe station with homemade fudge sauce, sweetened condensed milk, raspberry sauce and whipped cream
Pastries including chocolate covered rice krispy squares, Tiffany blue meringues, chocolate dipped shortbread, chocolate croissants, chocolate covered mini donuts, chocolate cake pops, mint chocolate mini cupcakes and Nanaimo bars
Mini chocolate mousse cups with whipped cream and chocolate buttons
Just a little shout out here…the cake pops were made by Tracycakes and they were ridiculously good and worth every calorie. They were chocolate cake dipped in chocolate and they can customize the color of the sprinkles or pearls to go with your decorations!
