What Can I Do With A Chocolate Fountain Answered

I have a chocolate fountain, but I haven't used it in a long time (two years). It's really hard to wash, which is the main reason I haven't used it. Is there anything I can do with it? Maby make it easyer to clean somehow?

Cheese fountain! You could thin melted velveeta with milk and have the most awesome nacho party ever.

Yes, the clean-up afterwards would still be a pain, but totally worth it.

Put some rocks on the base plate and make a zen (water) fountain?

Maybe use it regularly for its intended purpose—so regularly that you wouldn't really have to clean it since the new chocolate would push the old chocolate (only a week old) out with each use. Throw a chocolate fondue party, then pass it around the neighborhood or whatever so it really does get used regularly without you having to eat 5 pounds of chocolate every week. You could even rent it out for cheap.

...eventually, the creator realized that it enhances homosexuality, the urinal had to be removed and is now hidden safely in area 51.

I was just wondering the same thing. How do forum topics get featured anyway? It seems that all of Fungus Amungus's topics get featured automatically.

I feature most of my own forum topics to make sure that there are fresh topics in the list. I work here, so that's an exception. Others are typically featured by someone other than the author.

That's what I figured. I think featured topics should get a featured banner and their own section of the community.

A member of the feature team sets the flag (they get a little button to do so).

It helps to just bribecoercetrick impress someone on the feature team into doing that. It's that easy.

Pimp it up with LEDs and then fill it up with mineral oil and glitter.

How about Goldschlager Cinnamon Schnapps instead? Or for a cheapskate version, Orbitz soda (yeach), if you can still find it...

I had help and a large drink :-D

(I meant to put the LEDs inside the riser-tube of the fountain, or under the domes, so you get sort of sparkly-glowing effects as it pours down.

You'd be able to disconnect the heater as well.

I have two (milk and dark, of course.) I didn't find them too hard to clean; most of the tough parts go in the dishwasher and the rest wipes up pretty easily once ou get some soapy water in there. I wonder if one would pump "slime" (too bad it's too late for Halloween...)

To clean -- pump hot water through it. You'll lose a lot of chocolate, but so be it.

Yea, that helps, but it's still annoying to take the motor and the fountain apart for washing. Some pieces go in the dishwasher, and others have to be hand washed. I guess there is really no easy way to wash the thing. Maybe soapy hot water?

yeah, but if you dont get all the soap out, you will have soapy chocolate next time you use it.

That wouldn't work - the glitter would get stuck between your teeth and you wouldn't be able to see the LEDs. (You have to think these things through properly, you know)
