Chocolate Fountains


Chocolate fountains are frequently seen at weddings and large events. These fountains are a fabulous way to entertain your guests. I love the idea of having something that encourages your guests to get up and mingle. Why not have everyone mingle around chocolate? I can't think of a better way to have a sweet celebration. Many reception venues offer their own chocolate fountains. If not there are many wedding and party supply companies that rent these fountains and are available in a few different sizes.

Most people are not aware that smaller fountains can also be purchased. They are perfect if hosting a small get together, a baby or bridal shower, a birthday party or to ring in the New Year. Small chocolate fountains can be purchased at many major retailers such as Amazon or Target and are not that expensive. You can purchase a small chocolate fountain for as little as $39.99. Keep in mind that chocolate fountains require special chocolate called couverture chocolate. Couverture chocolate has a higher amount of cocoa butter and can be purchased at specialty stores.

You can still have the experience of a chocolate fountain without spending money on a fountain purchase or rental. Making chocolate fondue in a crockpot is easy and delicious. It is just as fun and perfect for a small group or house party. Chocolate fondue is also romantic for date night.

Directions:

1. Combine all the ingredients together on low for 1 hour.
