Party planning is not just about decoration, but foods as well. What if you choose something that can act as a decorative item and also keep the guests’ taste buds happy? A chocolate fountain can be used for this purpose. When placed on the buffet table, it looks beautiful and guests can dip various items in the chocolates to enjoy sweet and savory delicacies.
A chocolate fountain pumps melted chocolate through the inbuilt machines and the chocolate falls over the top to create the image of a fountain. The aroma immediately increases your appetite and capture attendees’ attention. The best thing about chocolate fountains is that they can be used for all type of parties. Be it a birthday party, marriage anniversary, wedding ceremony or Halloween celebration, chocolate fountain can suit any party theme. It’s cheaper than other common centerpieces used in a party; also, don’t forget that it’s a guilt-free delight. Chocolate is an antioxidant, thus even the most health conscious guest won’t complain.
You can use a range of chocolate flavors for the fountain, considering what majority of guests will love. It can be white, dark, or milk chocolate. You can also add honey, butterscotch, liquor or caramel to the chocolate to give it an exotic twist.
So, how will the guests enjoy the chocolate fountain? Obviously, they won’t put a spoon inside the fountain to taste the flavor. Therefore, you have to provide some dipping items with the fountain. The great thing about chocolate is that it tastes good with almost anything you can imagine and hence, the dipping options are endless. Some of the popular dipping items are marshmallows, pretzels sticks, peanut brittle, biscotti, macaroons, breakfast bars, granola bars, sponge cake, strawberries, bananas, pineapple, raspberries, blueberries, mango, blackberries, wafers, and even cookies.
# Child’s birthday party: Unlike adults, children are more curious and can be messy sometimes. They may like the fountain so much that they start putting their fingers inside the melted chocolate, just to have fun. In order to stop kids from doing something like that, you can let them create their own dessert. Give a small pot to all the kids and a shovel for collecting the melted chocolate. Provide plenty of topping options such as toffee, gummy worms, Oreo, etc. Let them put the preferred topping on the chocolate mud pie. They will enjoy this desert customization facility and the party will be successful.
# Cocktail party for marriage anniversary: Chocolate tastes great with a range of alcoholic drinks such as rum, wine and champagne. Use any of them as the core ingredient and pair it with a fruity liquor to create an energetic cocktail. Guests often bring bottles of wine as a gift and you can use them for cocktail creation as well. Let them enjoy the cocktail with chocolate dipped food items.
# Wedding ceremony: In a wedding ceremony, you can use the chocolate fountain as the centerpiece on the table where food items are laid. It will add visual beauty to the entire room and since it’s a buffet system dinner, people can dip wafer biscuits, fruits, cookies, etc. in the fountain and talk with friends and relatives. They can chit chat and enjoy the chocolate at the same time.
Whatever party you may plan in the coming weeks, make sure that chocolate fountain is a part of it. It will add life to your party and guests will enjoy your creative idea.
