Chocolate Fountain Instructions  -  Getting Ready

If you are thinking of having a chocolate fountain for your next party you might be wondering if you should pay someone to set up and man it for you or do it all yourself. In order to make an educated decision you could probably do with some chocolate fountain instructions!

What you will need

  • Quality Chocolate - the large fountains usually use about 20 pounds
  • Microwave
  • Microwave safe bowl, jug or bucket
  • A spoon for stirring the chocolate
  • Spatula for scraping the chocolate from the bowl
  • Wet wipes (not essential but usually a good idea)

If you are hiring one of the large chocolate fountains then it will come in 2 or 3 bits which you first will need to assemble by connecting the central spine to the bowl. It's not too difficult a job but I would highly recommend that you erect it in the place that it is going to stay throughout your event so if you need to move tables and lay out tablecloths then you do that first. Now that you have the chocolate fountain in place just make sure that it is completely dry because chocolate and water don't really mix well at all.

Now that the fountain is in place you will need to add the chocolate but first it will have to be melted. If you have bought chocolate especially for a chocolate fountain then it will probably be in chips or buttons, if not then you can use normal block chocolate however you will need to break this up into pieces first. Put the chocolate into your container and put into the microwave. Heat for about 6 minutes on full power, remove from the microwave and give it a stir, if there are still solid bits then return to the microwave for a further 2 minutes. It should all be nicely melted now but if you do still find a few stubborn bits then just give additional blasts of about 30 seconds until fully melted as you won't want to burn your chocolate.

Pour the melted chocolate into the bowl of the chocolate fountain and turn the machine on. The chocolate will be sucked up from the bottom of the spine and will cascade out of the top down each of the tiers and back down into the bowl. Initially it may not flow evenly but after a few minutes it should flow smoothly and will give a continuous stream of chocolate. If after 15 minutes or so it still has gaps then you may need to add a bit more chocolate but it will usually sort itself out on it's own. The heat from the motor should keep the chocolate melted and flowing but if it does start to thicken then just turn up the temperature slightly.

That's all there is to setting up your chocolate fountain but you perhaps you might also like instructions on cleaning your chocolate fountain after the event before you make your decision.

They've probably been in the UK for about 10 years now, quite popular at events and now you can get a smaller version for home :)
