Eating chocolate is some of our favourite pas times. The taste palone is pretty great. And often, indulging in chocolate goes hand in hand with a special event, like a birthday, anniversary, or wedding. Many great memories are created when chocolate is shared. People turn to chocolate for an extra special dessert, as a way to celebrate with friends, or even to soothe a wounded heart. And the best thing about chocolate is that there are so many varieties from which to choose. In the mood for potent dark or delicate white chocolate? How about exotic fruits with the decadent treat or maybe some hearty nuts? Why not both? Whatever you’re craving, there’s a chocolate to fill it.
For chocolate lovers, nothing can top the invention of the chocolate fountain. It is the premiere way to indulge in this favourite treat. Chocolate fountains, created in the 1920s, pumps heavenly melted chocolate up through the fountain’s center, over the top, where it falls in captivating, cascading layers of warm deliciousness. In recent years, these fountains have been an ever-present staple in celebrations and kitchens around the world.
A wedding chocolate fountain from OMG makes an inviting and lively centerpiece for your buffet table. Not only does it offer delectable treats, it can look classy and elegant if displayed correctly, and it can add a lot of fun to any party. It’s sure to be the place where people gather, not only to indulge in the tasty treats it continuously offers, but also to share memories and lively conversation. It makes a great alternative to expensive and harder to manage desserts, as well. For example, which is easier to serve and guaranteed to please more, 100 bowls of ice cream or a never-ending stream of warm, sweet chocolate?
A complete chocolate fountain setup should start with delicious, high-quality chocolate. Those with a higher concentration of cocoa butter melt beautifully in the microwave and pour easily into your fountain. If you want to change the flavor a bit, you can add some melted mints to the melted chocolate and mix well before pouring into the fountain.
There’s no end to what you can serve as dippers for the warm chocolate: wafers, cookies, marshmallows, sponge cake cubes, or pretzels will settle any sweet tooth craving. It’s always good to offer healthier alternatives as well, like bite-sized banana pieces, strawberries, or apples slices. Keep dishes of colorful jimmies, crisped rice cereal, and whipped cream close at hand for guests who want to truly decorate their dessert creations.
A chocolate fountain can be a great way for guests to warm up to each other while enjoying a tasty treat. These timeless inventions can be bought at specialty stores or rented for special events. They come in all sizes and styles and will continue to delight the young and the young at heart wherever they are presented.
For no extra cost you can experiment with flavours and different types of chocolate. There is the standard plain, white and milk chocolates available but also a range of flavours from caramel to lemon and lime, or orange to honey as optional extras. This is what made ours so popular as we chose strawberry milk chocolate which went down a treat and looked exquisite.
