Chocolate Fondue Fountain

Updated on January 11, 2010


Fondue is popular at parties, but you'll find that a lot of people really don't know what it is. Fondue is a Swish dish that usually is a semi-liquid cheese sauce served in an earthenware pot over a small burner, but it doesn't always have to be cheese and it doesn't have to be served in a pot.

Where cheese fondue can be a main meal, where guests dip cubes of bread or other food into the fondue, chocolate fondue is a great dessert piece that you can serve with many different foods to dip.

To make things a little fancy, a fondue fountain is a great choice. These are quite popular at some wedding receptions, baby showers, and birthday parties.

If you're still trying to figure out what you can melt to make fondue, the most popular choices are cheese, meat, and dessert. The meat fondues are generally some kind of boiling fat, bouillon, or sauce that people can dip cubes of chicken, turkey, beef, or pork into the fondue pot. The dessert fondue can be chocolate (most popular), marshmallow, honey, coconut, or caramel.

If you're thinking about purchasing a fondue fountain, you'll definitely want to consider the following, as they'd be great for formal parties, weddings, and just about any occasion that you want to have something a little different. Fondue fountains make great centerpieces, but provide a warm sauce for your snacks.
