Sweet Station

Guests will adore this adorable setup, but they'll really love creating their own custom dessert.

Simple Presentation

Keep the look simple and sophisticated by using all white bowls (larger bowls for the dips and smaller bowls for the toppings). Add a rustic touch by placing them on a large plank or cutting board.

Do-It-Yourself Treats

Place apple slices on sticks, ready to be dipped. There's less mess, and they're the perfect three-bite portion.

Provide Variety

Beyond the classic caramel dip, treat guests to hazelnut spread, dark chocolate and white chocolate dips. Get This Easy Caramel Dip Recipe

Sweet + Salty Toppings

Provide a variety of toppings, including salty and sweet, with varying textures. Our favorites are rainbow sprinkles, chocolate chips, mini marshmallows and shredded coconut.

Label Everything

Make sure everything is labeled so guests can quickly identify dips and toppings. You can use card stock, wooden gift tags or write on the bowls with a wax pencil.

Encourage Experimentation

Encourage guests to try different topping combinations, like white chocolate with mint chocolate chips or hazelnut spread and coconut.

Grab + Go

For those that just aren't into the DIY part of the deal, prep a platter of apples already sliced, drizzled and topped so guests can just grab and go.
