Sometime in the 1980’s, some genius from Canada with a love of all things chocolate decided that a free-flowing, lava-like stream of chocolate exuding from a towering volcano structure would be a fabulous idea. I have no idea why, but I do not argue with such obvious and remarkable intelligence. I mean, it is the stuff we dreamed about at night after viewing “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory”. Warm, melted chocolate at our disposal. Ready for the taking. Yum.
So, what do you put in the sweet stream besides your finger? (kidding – sort of) Try these treats:

Now, many brides order this chocolate fantasy for their dessert table at their wedding. You do not, however, need an excuse to get one. Indulging in chocolate does not require nuptials, just a group of friends and a mutual love of the sweet stuff. In fact, caterers frequently rent chocolate fountains to people celebrating a graduation, birthday party or even a retirement party. Heck, they even sell an at home version at many department stores, which would allow you to indulge at the drop of a hat. Maybe that’s not the best idea for your waistline.
