My god daughter is graduating HS! Having a big bash w/ a chocolate fountain. What I've got so far for dipping:
homemade coconut shortbread cookies
I was considering banana slices but not sure how to do those due to the browning factor... sprinkle w/ lemon juice?
Any other dipping ideas would be greatly appreciated!
Mini donuts and fresh pineapple are two others that have been popular with our customers!
other items I've had before:
pound cake cubes
angel food cake cubes
graham cracker sticks
pieces of cheesecake
I own 5 choc fountains and use them at weddings all the time.
Rice Krispie Treats are good ones ... I cut them in 1x3" sticks.
To use bananas, cut them in 1.5" lengths. Swish them in a 7-Up "bath" .... pour some 7-Up into a bowl and swich the cut bananas in it for 15-20 seconds. The bananas will sit out for about 20 mins without turning brown. At weddings, I cut no more than 3 bananas at a time and set them out. It only takes seconds to make a new batch.
Graham crackers go great, especially if you also have marshmellows, for that Smores taste.
Mini-muffin brownies (sold at Sam's) are great. They have a concave top, so they hold a good dollop of chocolate!
Be careful with anything that has crumbs .... cut pieces of pound cake, biscotti, etc..... the crumbs will get in the choc and it won't flow as smooth and pretty.
