What type of chocolate does the chocolate fountain use?

The chocolate fountain will operate with most any brand of "coverture" chocolate. Coverture chocolate is a high quality chocolate that contains extra cocoa butter (32-39%). The higher percentage of cocoa butter, combined with the processing, gives the chocolate a creamy mellow flavor and allows the chocolate to flow through the fountain more elegantly.

 
What foods can you dip in the fountain?

Most any food item that goes well with chocolate can be used with the chocolate fountain. The most popular items are; strawberries, bananas, pineapple, cherries, grapes, mellons, pretzel sticks, marshmallows, biscotti, pound cake, and even rice krispy treats!  Just keep in mind that any crumbly-type food that may fall into the chocolate fountain will cause the chocolate to get lumpy. Although this will not harm the fountain, it does affect the appearance of the chocolate as it is cascading over the tiers.

 
Who provides the food for the chocolate fountain?
Due to licensing requirements, the caterer or  banquet facility provides the food for the fountain.  We will be happy to work with them on suggesting what food items can be used.
 
Can the fountain be used outside?

We do not recommend using the chocolate fountain outside for the following reasons.

  1. Maintaining a warm temperature of chocolate is critical for continued smooth operation of the chocolate fountain. Depending on the time of the year and the general climate, this could be difficult to accomplish in an outdoor setting.

  1. Because of the chocolate’s sweet aroma, little flying creatures are very likely to be attracted to the chocolate fountain. This makes for an unappealing presentation.

What do I have to provide to rent a chocolate fountain?

Since the chocolate fountain weighs approximately 100 pounds when full, a level, sturdy table is required.   If it is not level, the chocolate will not flow properly. Your banquet facility should provide two table linens that will coordinate with your color scheme. The chocolate fountain requires a 120 volt grounded electrical outlet within 20 feet of the set-up location.

For non-catered events or private parties the client is responsible for the dipping items.
