Morkes extreme chocolate fondue party is 1½ hours of pure indulgence. You and your guests get to choose from ½ pound of milk chocolate or dark chocolate with no shortage of dipping dipping items. This package lets you bring your own foods and adult beverages, which is great if you and your guests would like to pair a wine with your chocolate. Any items that were not dipped and enjoyed can be taken home and savored later.

The dip and decorate chocolate party is a shorter party, of about 30 minutes. You’ll get to taste milk chocolate and white chocolate to pick which you and your guests would like best, then you get to dip. You and your guests will dip cookies, pretzels, marshmallows, gummies, and crackers. If you’ve noticed you may have sampled yourself full, keep dipping because anything not eaten is going home with you too.

The touch, taste, and temper party gets into the differences of the chocolate. You’ll have a chance to indulge in chocolate, temper your own chocolate, and even dip your hand in chocolate to learn how it is supposed to feel. You and your guests will learn the art of tempering chocolate and make “works of art” from chocolate. This particular party is suggested for ages 14 and up with a total of at least 10 participants.
