About this deal
Do not keep adding oil to your chocolate to thin it as this could cause the chocolate to leak through the seals and damage the insides of the fountains.
Once the chocolate fountain is up and running, it may need to be refilled or replenished after an hour or so, either due to cooling or consumption. At this stage, it is safe to add in additional chocolate pieces unmelted in very small amounts, as long as it does not exceed your chocolate to oil ratio (55% chocolate, 45% oil). For chocolate fountain wafers, it is especially safe to do this, merely ensure that the heating function is switched on once more. Even so, it may be smoother to melt the additional chocolate before adding it in anyways. Adding solid chocolate to a fountain causes it to slow its circulation, which may lead to unpleasing drips or clumps as it waits to be fully melted and incorporated once more. How to clean a chocolate fountain?
If the event is one where you know that all attendees are fine with any variety of food, go ahead and spread out whatever options your heart desires. However, if there is someone or some-two people present with a pertinent allergy, it may be better to have a small amount of chocolate set aside for them, or to leave any options that may causes a reaction out altogether if feasible. The one exception of course being the chocolate itself. It is likely safe to assume that someone with a chocolate allergy knows to avoid partaking in anything dipped in a chocolate fountain. How to maintain a chocolate fountain? White chocolate fountain with strawberries and bananas on skewers Another element to consider is how many people the sugary centerpiece will need to be capable of serving. Sizes of fountains available vary from vendor to vendor, with some companies providing chocolate centerpieces nationwide, and some sourcing events more locally by city or state. For a smaller gathering, say, only 50 guests or so, a small self-service 19” fountain, fitting around 5lbs of chocolate at a time, would suffice.
An easy formula to determine how much chocolate is needed for a chocolate fountain is to add 1 pound of chocolate for every 10 guests— or 20, if there are other desserts present. Guests For some chocolate fountain rentals, especially those that are maintained throughout the event by a professional, cleaning is handled by the company themselves. Nevertheless, for smaller rentals or personal fountains cleaning falls to the user. Dealing with chocolate can be a daunting task, especially melted chocolate, which can be especially hard to get out of fabrics or off of surfaces once dried. For this reason it is best to handle the cleaning while the chocolate is still fluid. The chocolate is flowing like gold down the streets of El Dorado, its sweet familiar scent floating on the air and warming the soul. Awesome! Now what? As a rule, the rule of hand to go by when selecting foods to dip requires two things: that the food taste good with chocolate and that the food be able to maintain its integrity while submerged in the heavy river of chocolate.
Easy to clean once used, the fountain includes 100 bamboo skewers so you can easily dip treats in and cover in melted chocolate.
