Have you tried a chocolate fountain at an event yet? They are the latest rage all over the country. The fountain is about 3 feet tall and made of tiers of stainless steel. The base contains a motor and pump. Finely cut pieces of chocolate are placed in the base where it melts. The melted chocolate is then pumped up through the center of the fountain and spills down the sides. Guests use skewers to dip fruit, cake, and other items into the cascade of chocolate. Fountains must be used indoors, where they won’t attract gnats and other small insects, which get stuck in the pump (and spoil yur appetite).
High quality chocolate that doesn’t contain wax or other additives is used so it doesn’t interfere with the working parts of the pump. The machine must be cleaned immediately after use to remove the chocolate before it hardens. Therefore, you won’t usually find a chocolate fountain at a rental center. Instead, most belong to small owner-operated businesses. This is a great part-time business for anyone who is looking for a second source of income.
