Chocolate Fondue Fountains - Heaven On A Stick

Chocolate Fondue Fountains (For Virgins)

A chocolate fondue fountain can turn a simple dessert into something that is visually orgasmic. ♥ Perfect to end a romantic Valentine's Day dinner (and start the after dinner festivities if you know what I mean!)

Normally when people talk about fondue they talk about the pot sitting over a small burner where dinner or party guests can dip chunks of bread into a melted cheese dish. It's considered, well, awesome!

Basically, anything you can melt you can make into fondue. For a dessert, chocolate is the perfect option. The added dimension of having a fountain instead of a pot makes the whole thing that much more appealing to the eye. People will want to have some just because it's irresistable.

A cascading waterfall of chocolate... it's almost like you're in the Wonka Chocolate Factory of dreams!

1. Wilton Chocolate Pro Fountain

Most people recommend the Wilton fountain for first timers for its ease of use. It has 3 tiers that come apart for easy cleaning. It is a quiet machine, with three adjustable feet and a bubble level. Almost everyone that has this machine recommend using the Wilton brand chocolate melts as well (see below for link) - I haven't had them yet but apparently they are "that good"!

<< This chocolate fondue fountain is my recommendation over the rest. It has the best (and most) reviews of the lot. You don't need to add any oil if you use the Wilton chocolate melts. It's a great all rounder.

If you decide to get a different fondue fountain, I'd still recommend these chocolate melts.

 

2. Nostalgia Stainless Steel Chocolate Fondue Fountain

The Nostalgia chocolate fondue fountain is similar to the Wilton, but out of the two I would recommend the Wilton product. It's base isn't as adjustable so you will have to make sure your table is level. The tower and auger are plastic so they are dishwasher safe.

3. Total Chef Stainless Steel Chocolate Fountain

The Total Chef chocolate fountain can hold 2 pounds of chocolate. Other brands sometimes require up to 5 pounds. It has a thermostat and safety fuse. This is a durable product and good for the price. It makes the necessary magic for small parties.

4. Rival Chocolate Fondue Fountain

The Rival chocolate fondue fountain also holds 2 pounds of melted chocolate but it also comes with 8 fondue skewers and a serving tray. Its parts can go in the dishwasher and come with a year's warranty. I just can't get over how good it looks! For me, presentation determines whether I just sample... or indulge!

5. Total Chef Chocolate Fountain Double Tower

A ha! Two in one! The Total Chef double tower, 2 tier fountain shows that you really can have the best of both worlds! However the stainless steel bowl only holds about 650ml or 22oz of melted chocolate for each tower basin. Buyers have said this works well, but is a little bit noisier than some of the other chocolate fondue fountains.

This hub is a chocolate addicted paradise. Very interesting. I'll guess you'll receive hundreds of well deserved positive comments. One is mine. Now I need a piece of dark chocolate :)

Very well done Marco.

Heavenly, I can think of all sort of things to dip in there, from exotic fruits to little sponge cakes. I like to play with colours, I would go for a strong black chocolate fondue with colourful fruits like pineaples, strawberries, crunchy apples, juicy pears, slimy mangos sprinkled with white mashmallows and finger cakes. I am suddenly very, very hungry!

@I*n*v*i*c*t*u*s someone served that up for me once as part of a casual dinner and it just looked and felt romantic. I took a mental note to keep that in my repertoire!

@Anath your avatar goes well with this hub! Those are some great suggestions. Now I can think of a few more things to dip in there too *wink*
