Can't help you with how to make the stuff they use for pouring chocolate (maybe they use the real stuff?) - haven't got a clue. But as far as lighting it, I suggest treating it like any reflective material - like a car, for instance. That normally means reflecting light sources INTO the surface, rather than lighting them with specular, or 'hot' sources. So bouinced light, and/or other big soft sources is probably the trick here. And to make it look crisp - overcrank camera and close the shutter down, perhaps?

Taple top food photography is quite an artform by itself, the top guys gets huge amounts of money, which is why the burger in the ad never looks like the real thing!

Just whatever you do, don't drop your camera INTO the chocolate ala "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory"! Sorry, couldn't resist.

My Mother is a Wedding planner and for the chocolate fountains they use melted milk chocolate mixed with vegatable oil to keep it liquid. I dont know how well that would photograph but what is used.
