Menu Suggestions
One word: Fondue. Have platters of fruit and nuts from each "world" interspersed around the table (the fruit should be cut into bite-sized pieces). In the center of the table, place a fondue pot filled with melted chocolate for a tasty and interactive seder (check out our recipe). Don't forget to provide sticks or long forks for dipping.

Wine List Ask your local wine seller for chocolate port and use it in place of the red wine. Another option is to skip the wine altogether and substitute it with chocolate. Start with a piece of white chocolate in the first "world" and slowly progress to milk chocolate, bittersweet, and--finally--decadently dark.

Decorations Lay a light brown tablecloth on your table and use dark brown napkins fastened with cream-colored rings for a sweet effect. Top off the table with this almost-good-enough-to-eat chocolate bar candle.
