December Seasonal Ice Creams are Here!
Egg Nogg & Chestnut Ice Creams meet many Warm Fountain Friends – Wassaling in Maples Sweetened Waffle Cones or Skating atop a Sofocando.
Holiday Hot Fudge Sundae
Handmade Red & Green Peppermint Candy ribbons thru white cold Peppermint Stick Ice Cream bathed in a Hot Fudge Blanket. This Comforting Cold Weather Treat is the perfect choice after a Show or Fun Outdoor Activity – also available with dairy-free Peppermint Stick ice cream!
“A Christmas Carol Crunch” Sundae
This elaborate dish features Rum Raisin Ice Cream, Sticky Pudding Cake, topped by candied English Walnuts and pools of house-made hot Caramel Sauce. It is spooked thricely by Dickensian Christmas spirits, and we suspect that it would go over quite well at one of Fezziwig’s ‘Cheery’ parties.
A Hot New Soda: Glögg
Our glögg is an ode to the Swedish hot drink. We have simmered local apple cider with whole NJ blueberries & cranberries. Mulled with cloves, cinnamon, star anise, and splashed with a hint of citrus, it’s the perfect pick me up after a cold winter activity.
Gifts from The Fountain
The Franklin Fountain has the perfect gift for the Holidays… Ice Cream! Indulge in a break from holiday shopping and cross some names off your list at the same time with a gift certificate from The Franklin Fountain. (also available online) Our hand-made whole pies make the perfect hostess gift. Or pick up a set of our jarred house-made toppings as a gift or for a make-your-own sundae bar at home.
Our renowned buttercream spiced with Nutmeg, Allspice, Cinnamon, and Ginger coated in smooth White Chocolate. A piece of house-made Candied Orange Peel is the perfect finish to this holiday confection.
Peppermint Marshmallows & Peppermint Bark
A seasonal twist on a classic – our Vanilla Marshmallows are flavored with Peppermint, dipped in Dark Chocolate and sprinkled with a dash of crushed Peppermint Candy. For a more traditional treat layers of Dark & White Chocolate mixed with crushed Candy Cane pieces compose our Peppermint Bark. Either pairs nicely with a steaming cup of hot cocoa from our Chocolate Café on a cold winter’s day!
Gift of the Magi Assortments
In the true Spirit of the Season enjoy this chocolate trio, which features Truffles of Frankincense and Myrrh complemented by a Milk Chocolate Honey Caramel topped in shimmering Gold.
Have a cup of Rock & Rye
Rock & Rye is made by combining Rock Candy with sliced Citrus and Rye Whiskey for a soothing and satisfying drink. Make your own concoction at home with our jarred Clear Toy Coins – we recommend locally distilled Dad’s Hat Whiskey (or milk for a kid-friendly adaptation). We’ve also employed Bristol, PA’s Dad’s Hat Whiskey Rye for our Whiskey Caramels, dipped in Dark Chocolate & sprinkled with toasted Rye Seeds.
Our confectioners are also rolling out a line of Truffles which this year are set to boast such seasonal flavors as Mulled Wine, Fig & Pistachio, White Chocolate Egg Nogg, Mint, Cherry Black Forest, Hot Chocolate with Spiced Peanuts & more!
Cozy up this week with a sneak preview of our brand new chocolate cafe. Stone ground cacao teas & drinking chocolates are available now. Located in the back of Shane Confectionery at
110 Market Street.
