Chocolate fountains are not just for decoration. They are also for dipping fruits, vegetables, pretzels, meats and anything else you can think of in delicious liquid chocolate or fondue. Choose from a variety of sizes and prices, from small economy models to large, many-tiered models designed for the largest of parties, banquets and receptions. Chocolate fountains are heated, and to maintain the perfect temperature of liquid chocolate (about 105 degrees,) the fountain should be set at around 120 to 135 degrees. A little bit of trial and error will allow you to find the perfect temperature for your liquid chocolate recipe. Look for a set of skewers and keep it by the fountain to offer your guests a fondue-style dipping experience.
Although most people use chocolate fountains for chocolate, they are actually rather versatile items. Many of them can also be used for displaying liquid cheese sauces and almost any other dips that flow with a fondue-like consistency. These fountains are especially popular for wedding parties, holiday parties and New Year ’s Eve celebrations. No matter what the occasion, a chocolate fountain will bring a delectable display to your buffet or tabletop.
