DIY American Girl Chocolate Fountain

Our Valentine’s Day scene is coming soon and this chocolate fountain will make a perfect yummy addition!  I know there are other American Girl chocolate fountains floating around out there, but we still want to share our version since it has been requested by our viewers! We put a vote on our Instagram and the dripping chocolate fountain won! Enjoy!

American Girl Doll Birthday Party

Materials Needed:

  • Hot Glue
  • Assorted Bottle Caps
  • Buttons & Beads
  • A Small Recycled  Container *We used a yogurt cup
  • Brown Spray Paint
  • Model Paint
  • Assorted Spools


  • A large high temp hot glue gun works best because it pumps out more hot glue than a small one or a low temp.
  • We used model paint because we don’t want our plastic yogurt cup to chip, but any paint will work, just be sure to seal it.
  • Be sure to add yummy treats around the chocolate fountain and some toothpicks for the dolls to use as skewers.

Watch and tell us your favorite food to dip in a chocolate fountain!

    Nice one! Also, every single time we do a craft now, whether it be as simple as using markers and paper to draw or something more substantial we’ve learned from you, both girls must start the project by announcing “For this craft you’ll need….” It’s adorable!

    Thank you for all the great ideas for the spools. I’ll probably use marker caps so thanks.

    This is simply tooooooo cuuuuuute! Now if only I had spools?

    Do you think you could try to make those juice bottles? They are to cute! But this is simply a MUST HAVE!!!!!!!!! Do you think rolling up paper into small pieces would work for a substitute for the spools? I just HAVE to make this. It looks WAY TO REALISTIC!!!!!!!!!!!

    Rudy, you’ve got to stop! Everything you make is so irresistible! I can’t get anything done, but, crafting. And before I finish one thing I start something else. I don’t know how you come up with all these wonderful ideas.

    I REALLY WANT TO DO THIS! But it uses too much hot glue.

    • Rudy
      February 6, 2016 at 4:03 pm –

      It actually doesn’t. Less than a stick!

    Very clever, and the perfect craft, you can’t be too messy! My favorite thing to dip is Rice Krispie treats, I notice your doll holding one too. ?

    Yes, it does use a lot of Hot Glue! I might go make this right now for my dolls Valentine’s Day scene!! I have hot glue, lids, paint, the PERFECT yogurt cup, no spools, but those could be substituted easily!

    WOW! I had been wondering how you would do this, that is a lot of Hot Glue!

    • Rudy
      February 6, 2016 at 4:04 pm –

      It looks like a lot, but it’s really not. We used less than a stick for this craft!
