Hi- new to the candy board (usually on cake dec and cake business) so sorry if this info is somewhere I neglected to search!

Does anyone have a chart of info on how much chocolate is required to serve for a fountain? I'm looking for an estimate for 150 guests.

And what is the best type of chocolate to buy? Does it need to be a tempered chocolate? Would I have to add anything to it to make it flow more easily? (Dang, what are those crystals/flakes called? Senior moment here.... icon_confused.gif )

I can't help you with how much you will need to serve 150 people but I do know you would want a good quality chocolate like Godiva or Callebaut or whatever else they have in the US which is high end.You also have to mix it with cooking oil to get it to flow through the fountain..(or at least with my smaller one you do but I'm not sure about the commercial fountains)It was quite a high ratio...3 cups of oil to 4or 5 cups of melted chocolate..Hopefully someone else can give you a better answer!
