So. Im planning a bit of a showstopper dessert for my husband's class on Halloween.

I have clear plastic spider cups. Im going to make chocolate chip cookies that fit on the bottom. Then cupcakes with candy in the middle (butterfingers, lindts choco balls, or snickers) on top of the cookie. Then im making a caramel, a ganache, and a peanut butter sauce that will hopefully be warm, and can be put over everything. Then whipped cream.

Im going to assemble the cookie and cupcake into the cup, then id like to have the 3 choices of sauces available to put on.
But what on earth do i put them in?
Ideally a squeeze bottle that i can microwave, but i don't have any of those, nor could i find any i trust to microwave that can be here by Wednesday.

Husband thinks tupperware container with a spoon that they can scoop with. But i feel like 1) that's gonna be super messy 2) they are going to get more sauce that way, so id have to make more.

We have Mason jars (microwaveable), but they are small, and no spout/ not very pourable.

Have empty liter bottles, but i don't trust hot stuff in them, plus id have to microwave, then pour in which just sounds like a no.

Help

You can probably make something of a pouring top for your mason jars if you take the lid and drill pouring holes (one for pouring, one for air).

...but pouring does tend to use more sauce.

Maybe heat using a hot water bath (pot on hot plate). Take them out, and dry them off before serving. Just careful not to allow steam to condense into the chocolate.

Put the already heated sauce in a thermos and take it with you?

Ziploc bags with a hole cut in the corner?

Oh, I'd heat the Ziploc bags in the microwave beforehand and bring them to class right when they plan to eat them in a thermos /wrapped in blankets / your hot food transport method of choice. What puller said basically

We have a lack of thermos

2 sauces down

Dont mind my dirty stove, one more sauce then it gets cleaned



Blood red caramel




Chocolate/ ganache

Caramel looks questionable but tastes pretty good. Bit thin.

I found giant main jars

Though. The top is still up in the air. I bought a couple flip lids for them that day they'll be here tmrw, but we'll see.

You mentioned that you couldn't microwave the squeeze bottles, but would the syrups be too hot for them to be used at all?

I'm thinking it would be easy to heat in the mason jars and pour into the squeeze bottles.

Hot stuff and plastics could be problematic from a leeching standpoint though- - maybe best avoiding the squeeze bottles...
