Best Types of Chocolate and Dippers for Chocolate Fountains

Now that you have a plan to rent or buy a chocolate fountain, you need to buy some chocolate and some snacks for dipping. We’ll start with the chocolate. It is best to use chocolate with a high cocoa butter content for a nice consistency that will flow smoothly over the tiers. Many chocolate lovers prefer a Belgian chocolate called Couverture in their chocolate fountain.

Chocolate fountain Guide

You can actually use any type of chocolate that you like, but you may have to add some oil to get a good consistency. Some people like to use a more expensive chocolate like Godiva or Ghirardelli, but others prefer to use the less expensive bars that can be purchased at Wal-mart or Target. You can also add some paraffin wax for a little extra shine.

To prepare your chocolate fountain chocolate, melt the bars or chips slowly using a double boiler. A microwave can also be used, but make sure you do not melt the chocolate too quickly or heat it for too long. Your fountain should come with instructions that include how much chocolate you should melt. Pour your melted chocolate into the fountain at least 30 minutes before your guests arrive to get it flowing and to see if you need to adjust the temperature or add a little oil.

Now that the chocolate is flowing, what should we dip? The most popular items for dipping are strawberries, bananas, marshmallows and pretzels. You can really use anything that does not crumble easily. Here are some more ideas: pineapple, apple slices, cherries, pears, crackers, angel food cake, nuts and dried fruits. One fun idea is to put marshmallows on a pretzel stick.

Make sure you provide your guest with small plates and plenty of napkins since dipping can be a little messy, especially if there are kids involved. You will also want to have toothpicks or small skewers for dipping.

When the party is over it is a good idea to pour the chocolate right into a container for later use. You may want to clean the machine right away or at least start it soaking.

Your guests will be thrilled at the sight and aroma of the waterfall of chocolate. Be aware that kids can get a little over excited and start using fingers for dipping. A little adult supervision should keep things under control. Enjoy your new chocolate fountain ! You can find more tips on

Here are some things to think about and some reasons you may decide not to have a chocolate fountain at your reception. Chocolate fountains work best at indoor receptions. If your wedding is outdoors you would have things like bugs, leaves and wind to deal with that might make the fountain unappealing.

Other couples worry about a possible mess not mixing well with high heels and guest who have been drinking. Still others are concerned that the number of children at the reception might make having a chocolate fountain a bit chaotic. If you do not have any of these concerns, then you may want to consider this wildly popular dessert display.

Many guest do not really ever eat the cake served at a wedding. Although the quality of your average wedding cake is on the rise, it used to be that the wedding cake was made more for looks than for flavor. For this reason and just because the quests have often had a lot to eat and drink, the wedding cake will go uneaten.

The chocolate fountain, on the other hand, smells wonderful and looks amazing. People can choose what they want to dip and how much they want.

Entertaining with a Chocolate Fountain

You have probably seen a chocolate fountain at a large event but never thought you could have one of your own. Well now chocolate fountains come in all shapes and sizes and they are not just for large corporate events and weddings anymore. Since most people love chocolate, having a fountain at a party is usually a big hit.

Once you’ve purchased or rented a chocolate fountain you should waste no time putting it to good use. Invite a few friends over to break it in and test out your skills with flowing chocolate. Following a few of these tips will help you keep the chocolate fountain flowing smoothly at your next party.

One of the most important things is to use the right chocolate. Many different types will work and this is partly a matter of taste. But many people agree that dark or semi-sweet chocolate is the best for dipping sweet foods such as fruit or cake. It is often recommended to buy Couverture chocolate for use in a fountain since it contains a higher percentage of cocoa butter. You can get this chocolate in all different varieties.

The chocolate needs to be melted and then poured into the fountain. You can melt the chocolate in a double boiler or in a microwave. Be careful not to heat the chocolate too quickly or it will scorch and have a burnt taste.

The low temperature heater in the chocolate fountain will keep the melted chocolate at the right consistency to flow through the fountain. If the chocolate cools off too much it will begin to thicken or harden. If it gets too hot it will thin out and flow too quickly over the tiers.

The best foods for dipping into the chocolate are fruits, marshmallows, pretzels and other food that does not crumble. Angel food cake is better that pound cake since it tends to make fewer crumbs that could break off and block up the holes in the fountain. If you want the chocolate to stick to the fruit or snacks better it is helpful to freeze the items before dipping. This helps the warm chocolate harden upon impact.

Provide toothpicks or skewers and small plates for your guests and don’t forget the napkins since this decadent treat can be a little messy. Now sit back and enjoy as you provide your friends with a beautiful and yummy treat!
