Chocolate Fountains and Fondue

Chocolate Fountains and Fondue - Add DELISH to your parties!

Have you ever been to a fancy shindig featuring a beautiful chocolate fountain? If you have, I can guarantee you will never forget it. Chocolate is a passion for so many people. I do mean passion! After all, who can resist a rich, seemingly perfect flow of chocolate coming from a beautifully displayed stainless steel fountain? The display of colorful juicy strawberries and other fine fruits is almost overwhelming, and enough to make anyone feel giddy inside. What special guests we must be, to be blessed with such a visual display. And we get to EAT it, too! Choosing a strawberry and letting the rich chocolate run over it is an experience one cannot forget. Be even more creative and let your guests choose from cake, brownies, cheesecake or any number of other foods to dip in the delicious chocolate. Your party will be talked about for weeks to come!

Guittard's Chocolate goes PERFECTLY with these great items.

For fun, visit Hotel Chocolat - the UK's only Cocoa grower and producer of luxury boxed chocolates for more than 10 years.

Chocolate Fountain Recipes

Guittard Chocolate

We recommend a good quality Guittard chocolate. We recommend this specific name and type of chocolate because of its unique ability to melt and turn shiny. The taste is superior to all other brands.

Preheat your chocolate fountain. Then start with a zip-lock bag. Fill with 2-5 lbs. of chocolate and vegetable oil. The oil is used to help the chocolate flow nicely and evenly. An appropriate amount of oil is about 1/2 cup of oil to about 4 pounds of chocolate, or to taste. Add the oil directly to the chocolate in the bag so it will mix while melting.

After adding the oil to the chocolate, zip the bag closed (make sure the bag is really closed or you'll have a big mess). You can double-bag the chocolate if it makes you feel more comfortable.

Place the closed bag with chocolate and oil in the microwave. Microwave in 30-second intervals, kneading in between, to prevent scorching.

Make sure the chocolate is completely melted and has no chunks of chocolate in it.

With your chocolate fondue fountain preheated, grab the bag with the chocolate. Cut about 2 inches off one corner so you can easily poor the chocolate into the fountain.

Repeat the procedure until your chocolate fountain is loaded with chocolate fondue.

Liven up your chocolate fountain - Try melting cream with the chocolate and then adding Kahlua, Irish Cream, coffee, or Amaretto instead of oil.

Or try adding chocolate flavoring oil - 1 bottle per 5 pounds of chocolate.

Clean up tip: Have a small plastic garbage bag to put the chocolate-covered fountain parts in until you can get them into the sink.
