Rent a chocolate fountain for your next party. Much like a regular fountain, the luxurious liquid in a chocolate fountain pours out the top of the fountain, cascades down a level or two, and is drawn up to the top again. Offer your guests a variety of bite-sized fruits and breads on toothpicks to dip in the fountain. Fine chocolate fountains are available through catering services and can be rented by the hour. To save money, arrange to have the fountain running only during the appetizer portion of your party.
Can any good brand of chocolate be used for dipping strawberries and still set up hard when cool? If not, can anything be done to it or added to the melted chocolate to ensure it will set up hard to the touch?
