Chocolate Fantasy Fulfilled | The Chocolate Fountain

What is the greatest invention of the 21st century? Cell phones? The internet? Electric cars? Nope. Those are all good guesses, but, unfortunately, all wrong. The chocolate fountain is the clear cut winner. It truly epitomizes all that is great about this century and I am confident that, looking back, future generations will feel the same way.

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:

Pretzels

Cookies

Brownie Bites

Marshmallows

Strawberries

Pineapple

Graham Crackers

Marchino Cherries

Frozen Cheesecake Bites

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.
