Eureka! Chocolate Fountain Cheetos

On New Year's Eve I went to a party and my eyes lit up to the
site of a chocolate fountain. I LOVE chocolate, so you can imagine
that this was the focal point of my night. The chocolate could have
been better for sure, and warmer, but the idea was fantastic.

Anyhow, I don't know if I'm the first to try this, but I saw all of the
dipping treats around the fountain and tried the usual. However, I
spotted a bowl of Cheetos to my right and decided I would try it.
Cheese and chocolate? Everyone thought it was disgusting until
they tried it themself.

It was delicious and all because I was bored with all of the choices
on the table. I may have been the first person to try this (probably-
not), but next time you have some hot fudge and a bag of the
crunch Cheetos (the puffs will get too soggy), try dipping your
Cheetos in there. It will surprise you how good it is.

The cheese flavor gets covered up, but the texture remains.

Cheers.
Rick

Cheezies (cheesies) and chocolate cake were an absolute favourite birthday treat as a child, so I bet I'd enjoy this just as much as you did, Rick. Thanks for letting us in on your new found fussion of unique flavours.

I just figure that most yummy things start off as experiments in food combinations. So heck, why not cheetos crunchy texture and warm
fudge. By the way, if you want great hot fudge, go to your frozen aisle
of the grocery store and get the Dove hot fudge in a jar. It is amazing!
Probably one of the best store bought hot fudges I've come across.

Cheers

I remember several years ago we were all making little chocolate covered sandwiches from mini ritz with peanut butter. Those were delicious - then Ritz quit making the crackers by themselves and the ones prefilled didn't come out as good.
