So you’ve decided to hire a chocolate fountain for your event? First off, congratulations!
Whether it’s a wedding, a birthday or another special occasion, your guests are sure to be
amazed and delighted by this incredible sweet treat. But will you go for simple milk chocolate or
something a little more exciting? Here are some of the most popular ingredients to enjoy in your
Milk, white or dark chocolate
Most hire providers will have their own preferred brand of chocolate, but there is usually
flexibility on this if you have a person preference. Normally, these are chocolates that have a
high oil or cocoa butter content, meaning that it will flow easily around the fountain once melted.
Happily, these are delicious too! Milk chocolate is probably one of the most popular options, as
it is a flavour that almost everyone likes. Alternatively, dark chocolate will give your fountain a
more sophisticated air, while white chocolate looks fantastic at weddings.
Want something a little different? Why not try adding some flavoured chocolate to the mix?
While some people are reluctant to go for anything too ‘out there’ in case their guests aren’t
keen, fortune favours the bold - and some exciting flavour choices could elevate your chocolate
fountain experience to the next level. For a Christmas party, orange or ginger are festive
choices, while any celebration will benefit from a little boozy addition to the mix. And if you can’t
decide, why not hire multiple fountains - each with a different flavour inside!
Once you’ve decided on what chocolate to put in your fountain, it’s time to think about what
you’ll offer your guests to dip in all that molten deliciousness. Typical treats include cake,
marshmallows, fudge and mini profiteroles or eclairs. Or why not add fruit for a healthier
alternative? Strawberries, pineapple and grapes are all popular, but you can also choose
something a little more unusual. How about pieces of orange, or more exotic fruits such as
mango and papaya? The sky’s the limit, so be sure to get creative with your ideas!
