How does the chocolate fountain work?
Melted chocolate is pumped to the top of a tower. Chocolate cascades off decorative tiers while guests dip fruit, pretzels, marshmallows and more into the warm flowing chocolate. Not only are chocolate fountains delicious, they make an elegant and fun addition to any special event. Guests will love to see how the chocolate smoothly flows over the multiple tiers, and how they can cover their favorite fruits and items with chocolate.
Where do people use a chocolate fountain?
Chocolate fountains are a great centerpiece at weddings, school events, receptions, anniversary parties, corporate events, proms, bar mitzvahs, birthday and holiday parties. We've also provided our service at trade shows, New Year's Eve parties, baby showers, conferences, quincaneras & more.
What do you dip?
Almost anything! The most requested items are fruits such as strawberries, pineapples and bananas. Pretzels, graham crackers and baked goods are also great items to use.
How long does the chocolate fountain run?
The chocolate fountain can run during all of your event. The fountain heats the chocolate so that it never hardens. We provide an unlimited supply of chocolate and our attendant is there to keep it full and flowing. We can also do cheese fountains and caramel fountains!
Who provides the dipping items?
We can provide the dipping items for an additional cost of $2.50 per guest. We will request that you look over our list of dipping items and chose your favorite items to serve at your event. If you would prefer, you may also check with your caterer or banquet facility about the provision of dipping items. Or you have the choice of providing the dipping items yourself for your event.

What if my event is longer than three hours?
Our standard rental period is 3 hours. However, we can still be there to provide a continous flow of chocolate! Each additional hour runs just $50. Please be sure to let us know your events duration, so that it can be included in the rental contract.
Is there a deposit required?
Yes. To schedule a fountain rental your event date & time, we do require a $100 (non refundable) deposit & a signed rental agreement. The remaining balance must be paid 14 days prior to the event date.
