There is nothing more delicious than a chocolate fountain with a variety of dippings. Whether you are hosting an event or simply treating yourself to this goodness, a constant flow of chocolate makes the perfect treat. Chocolate is more than a sweet treat. It is a post-workout treat, induces mental high and gets your heart pounding more than kissing would.

Here are 4 tips to keep your chocolate fountain flowing.
Melt your chocolate in advance
Melting your chocolate in advance allows it to settle in liquid form. As it settles, it also cools to temperatures that can be handled. Trying to melt your chocolate while setting up your fountain at the same time will make it difficult for you to check if all your chocolate is well melted. Without a steady supply of melted chocolate, it means you will have to interrupt the supply of chocolate fountain every time what is available runs out.
Preheat your Fountain
Fountains adapt to the surrounding temperatures. If you have your melted chocolate flowing through a cold fountain, it will lose its heat and begin to solidify in the process. Instead of a smooth flow, you will have your chocolate clumping together. To avoid this, preheat your fountain before putting chocolate in it.
Avoid placing your fountain close to an AC
The cold air circulating from your AC will definitely cool your chocolate. Chocolate can only remain liquid at temperatures 70 degrees and above. Hence, by placing it under an AC, you are rapidly lowering the temperature around making the chocolate to solidify.
Check for air bubbles in your fountain
Air bubbles make it hard for melted chocolate to flow through the fountain. They give some sort of resistance which blocks the melted chocolate from flowing. If you notice your chocolate not flowing as it should despite all factors being well set, turn off your fountain and observe the chocolate draining from the auger. If you can see bubbles in it, it means there is air locked within your fountain. Draining the auger and allowing a minute or two for the fountain to settle usually fixes this problem.
A well-flowing chocolate fountain depends on how well your setup your fountain and the state of your melted chocolate. Failure in either of the two will result in an unpleasant chocolate fountain, non-inviting and messy to serve.
