The list above is purely inspirational, feel free to add your own dips and experiment.
Chocolate fountains can come in different sizes and variants in order to cater for any type of event. Different flavours of chocolate can be requested. Milk chocolate would definitely be the most popular one that people generally request with their chocolate fountain hire, but also consider Belgium chocolate, dark chocolate or white chocolate. The most famed chocolate fountains are made by Sephra. This is really one of the most quality chocolate fountain brands out there. Generally this is not something you need to worry about with your chocolate fountain hire, as the rental company will ensure you have a quality and fully operational beautiful flowing fountain at your event. Just make sure you use good chocolate and have machines that can operate and maintain temperature for a long period of time and that don't clog (cheap machines usually do because of inferior pumping systems). When setting up your chocolate fountain, please take the time to consider its position and placement. Don't put it right next to the dance floor where people can easily knock it over. Not only will this be a real shame of all the delicious chocolate, it will also get very messy. Additionally, don't place the fountain just below the air conditioning as the cold air may cool the chocolate and influence the flow. If you want to use the fountain outside, make sure it is completely protected from the wind. You do not want the wind to cause a spray of chocolate which may get on clothes, people, walls, furniture etc.
So how many chocolate do you need? Well, approximately 5-7 kilo's of chocolate will cater for about a 100 people. Always ask the chocolate fountain rental business. They quite often can provide you with the right amount of quality chocolate. Don't you already start to feel like chocolate?
