I used this recipe minus the kahlua for a school function. It tasted fantastic, was easy and came out perfect. I can't imagine it tasting even better, so looking forward to trying it with the Kahlua with my own family. I refilled the fountain 4 times every 20 minutes for a two-hour dance with 220 8th graders. Can't wait to do it again next year
I made this for a teenager's birthday party, so I left out the Kahlua. The consistency is good, and it tastes great too. I'll be using this recipe again for future family gatherings. It's definitely cheaper than buying the kind they sell in the store (it's made specifically for chocolate fountains).
I've made this twice now and both times had people standing around the chocolate fountain dipping and talking, dipping and talking. :) Neither occasion was appropriate for the optional alcohol, but I'd like to try it sometime. A definite keeper- thanks for posting!
Used this recipe (without the Kahlua) for my home fountain on Christmas Day, and it was absolutely perfect. I ran the fountain for 5 hours straight, and the chocolate was just as good after all this time as when I first put it into the fountain. I used 1 bag of milk chocolate, and 1 bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips, plus the unsweetened chocolate and 3/4 cup of oil. The chocolate was smooth and rich, not too sweet and never scorched. This will remain my go-to recipe when using this fun fountain. (I had over a cup of the chocolate mix left over at the end of the evening, and after it hardens, it makes delicious truffles rolled in 10x sugar or cocoa powder. ) A keeper, for sure! Thanks for posting!
Just a hint to those thinking of adding Kahlua...Warm the Kahlua before adding. Adding a room temperature or cold Kahlua to warm chocolate will seize the chocolate.
this is a grade recipe.i like to it. very useful
I mixed together the Chocolates & oil and had the perfect consistency. Then I added the Kahlua and it messed it all up. Do Not add the Kahlua.
I have used this recipe several times and it's always a big hit. Thank you so much for posting it!!!!
It was chocolate so there was no way it could be bad. On the other hand there was nothing stand our or exceptional about the flavor of this recipe.
I made this for a Baby Shower (minus the Kahlua) and it was a hit. I doubled the batch and actually used a couple Lindt 70% Cocao bars instead of the baking chocolate. I had a lot of chocolate left over so I froze it and used it at Christmas. Thanks for posting this recipe, it was most helpful!
