Does anyone know of a good brand of chocolate to use in a Chocolate Fountain. So many of them taste bad or ask you to add a lot of extra oil. I need something that will be "runny" enough but I don't want to sacrifice the flavor.....

I can't advise you on a brand but as far as I know they all require oil added to it to get that runny consistency. A girl at my old work used to run one as a business and I know she used Belgian chocolate, and generally most of their chocolate with high cocoa solids is pretty good! Hope that helps a bit!

Sephra chocoalte is made for fountains and does NOT require oil. It's yummy! Merckens also makes Falls chocolate for fountains, and it DOES require oil.

Also, I have a 34" Sephra fountain I'd love to sell.

I just use Nestle milk chocolate chips and then use cocoa butter instead of oil. Very yummy!

I use Chocoley chocolate, they make chocolate especially for fountains. I have only used their milk chocolate in my fountain and my friends have commented that they really like that chocolate. Check out their website and they are always sending out ideas for you to try.

This is the recipe I have always used. It has to be thinned down quite a bit though, so I use half and half or whipping cream til I get it to the right consistency. I just found a gallon of Hershey's fudge on sale for $4, so I am going to experiment with that.
I was really grossed out the first time I made the chocolate for the fountain with all that oil. I refused to use my fountain again til I found an oil free recipe.
