Rather than focusing on a specific party and theme today, we’re going to focus on a product. And in today’s spotlight is everybody’s party favorite: chocolate fountains! No matter what the occasion, a chocolate fountain for your party is always going to be a crowd-pleaser. So, let’s look at how to get the best out of your chocolate fountain at your next party!
Chocolate Fountain is Suitable For EVERY Party
Whether it’s a kids chocolate fountain or one for the adults, you can use a chocolate fountain at every party. Let’s be honest, we all love chocolate, no matter our age, so it’s a simple dessert to serve at every event with no hassle. Simply put out the chocolate fountain with the chocolate of your choice (you can change it according to your guest list – but more on that later) and allow everyone to grab a wooden skewer and get stuck in dipping their favourite treats!
All you need to do is pick out what style of chocolate fountain you would like. There are lots of options, from mini chocolate fountains for kids, all the way to ones that are more retro in design, and even ones that give a more gourmet experience. We’ve done all the hard work for you, so choose from any of the one’s we’ve found that best suits your party, and get ready for a fun-filled event that people can’t stop talking about!
1. Food For The Fountain
Besides choosing your fountain, you’ll also need to do a little prep work to make sure the party goes off without a hitch. And first on that list is the food. You need to decide what you’re going to serve with the chocolate fountain for party food. We have some brilliant suggestions below that’s perfect for kids and adults alike, but almost anything goes when it comes to chocolate fountains. If you have a particular sweet treat that you love, then give it a dip! Chocolate makes everything better, especially when it’s served right out of a fountain.
Dipping any of the suggestions below will make it crisp on the outside, and soft and juicy on the inside, exactly what you want from a chocolate fountain treat:
– Fresh Strawberries
– Seedless Grapes
– Fresh Melon
– Pineapple Chunks
– Sliced Banana
– Chocolate Biscuits (because what’s better than chocolate? More chocolate!)
– Mini Doughnuts
– Peanut Brittle
Choose anything you like, and don’t just stick to this list. There’s a whole world of chocolate fountain goodness just waiting for you – so get out there and explore it!
2. Which Chocolate Should I Use for Chocolate Fountain?
Deciding which chocolate to use in a chocolate fountain is like trying to pick your favourite child – it can seem impossible. That is, until you sit down and think about different scenarios. You don’t have a favourite child, of course, but you might have one child you prefer to take shopping because they’re always calmer, or another that’s great at meal times because they aren’t fussy. The same applies to chocolate.
Think about the scenario – in this case, it’s the party. If you have a kids chocolate fountain party, then you don’t want to choose something they aren’t used to. Milk chocolate would work well here. You can pick up some great chocolate fondue packs from Amazon, and we’ve found the best of the best for you already. Belgian milk chocolate will work wonderfully for kids.
If you only have adults on the guest list though, you might consider a chocolate that’s a little more ‘grown up’. Maybe a luxury Belgian milk chocolate if you aren’t a fan of darker chocolate? But if you do like dark chocolate, then why not pick up a dark Belgian chocolate fondue that’s rich and delicious for your chocolate fountain?
3. Laying The Final Fountain Foundation!
OK, we’ve got the chocolate fountain, we’ve got the treats, and we’ve decided what chocolate to use in a chocolate fountain – we’re almost there. But before we leave you to get ready for your party, we thought we’d remind you about one more thing: wooden skewers!
So many chocolate fountain parties have turned into a mess (literally and figuratively) by forgetting wooden skewers. Pick up a pack before the guests arrive to make sure your house is still fit to live in by the time everybody leaves. Lay the wooden skewers out beside all the food you’re serving with the fountain so that nobody can miss them.
Chocolate fountains are perfect for every party, and with just a little preparation, you can make sure that your next party is one to remember!
