CHOCOLATE FOUNTAIN ACCESSORIES
Chocolate fountains are the latest craze when it comes to weddings, Bar Mitzvahs, anniversary parties, birthday parties, or any other type of social gathering. Designed to look like a tiered cake, the chocolate fountain is designed so chocolate is melted and then pumped from the reservoir at the base up to the top of the fountain (crown) where it cascades down for guests to look at and enjoy eating.
When choosing a chocolate fountain for your upcoming event, keep in mind that in addition to the fountain itself, you can also go with a number of chocolate fountain accessories. A chocolate fountain can be used whether the occasion is formal or casual and you can bet every guest will love dipping pound cake, fresh strawberries and pineapples, and cookies, or using the chocolate to drizzle on top of a dish of ice cream.
The first chocolate fountain accessory to consider is an electric double boiler. These accessories come in several sizes with the seven-quart being one of the most popular. While some chocolate fountain models come with an internal heating element, not all do. Therefore, the double boiler provides a safe and fast way to melt the chocolate for your fountain. This particular size can hold up to 10 pounds of melted chocolate along with thinning oil. With this, you can melt the chocolate and then maintain the heat, making perfect chocolate.
Another type of double boiler has a huge, 15-quart capacity. In this case, the boiler can hold up to 20 pounds of chocolate along with the thinning oil. That means you can melt all the chocolate needed to fill the fountain in one sitting. In addition, you can melt the chocolate while still maintaining the exact temperature. Plugging into a standard, 110-volt outlet and running off 1,200 watts of power, this is an excellent option for people who want to get the chocolate fountain up and running quickly.
Then, you might consider the chocolate fountain accessory of a drip guard, which helps keep the chocolate fountain and surrounding area neat and clean. In addition to looking better, the drip guard also makes after cleanup a breeze. For some excitement, you can use interchangeable neon lights that create a true festive mood around the fountain. However, even with the drip guard in place, you can still place fresh or silk flowers, or tulle around the bottom to enhance the overall appearance.
Finally, an excellent chocolate fountain accessory is a topper. With this, you can add flair and elegance to an already incredible unit. The toppers are quite impressive and really add to the excitement of the event. For example, if you were planning a wedding, then you might use fresh, red roses as the topper, for a birthday party, a dish of candy, or for Valentine's Day, a huge heart figure. When it comes to toppers and chocolate fountain accessories, the possibilities are endless.
