A fun and popular item at graduation parties is a chocolate fountain.
You can rent them at your local rental shop or there may even be a chocolate fountain rental business nearby. You can also buy chocolate fountains but they will likely be smaller in size and won’t be as heavy duty as rented ones.
When you rent a chocolate fountain the rental company will often come and set it up and then come back and take it down. So you don’t need to worry about heating the chocolate to right consistency or cleaning up the mess after. The rental compay will do it for you. Rented fountains are usually more expensive but if you’re having a joint party it may be worth the extra cost.
Here are some ideas of food to serve with your chocolate fountain:
- Pineapple cut in chunks
- Cut up Rice Krispie Squares
- Vanilla Wafers
- Potato Chips
- Pretzel Sticks (thick, 4″ sticks are best)
Some people like to serve cake but the crumbs may clog up the fountain. Store bought fountains are particularly susceptible to clogging.
You should also have short skewers/bamboo sticks for food such as pineapple.
