Melon is also good.

Pretzels
Strawberries
American waffle type things to drizzle with the chocolate.

Friend's birthday bash with chocolate fountain was yesterday. God I ate so much chocolate.

Thanks for all recommendations - very yum.

I never want to see a chocolate fountain ever again.
Picture table level chocolate fountain with about 20 3-7 year olds trying to get their marshmallows on sticks and into the chocolate.
Only about 2 grown ups consumed (me and another cousin)
Phew, I think it would havbe been better at a smaller occasion

That was both brave and foolhardy DarrellRivers wink

One child kept sticking his toothpick in without anything on it, licking it and then put it back in
My daughter turned around from the fountain and in seconds seemed to be covered in chocolate all over
The fountain seemed to stop of its own accord, but later on cleaning it , i found a toothpick jammed in its nether regions
Probably wise no adults took part [phew]
yours sounds much more civilised envy
