How to Make a Cannabis Chocolate Fountain

The perfect cannabis party recipe where nobody can take their hands off this delicious chocolate fountain. It’s truly heaven!

Great for the Holidays or a stoners birthday where everybody gets high and can’t stop digging in the chocolate because they have the munchies.

Put some strawberries or marshmallows on a stick and dig in. Or if you have some time on your hands, make some churro batter ahead of time and this will be the best weed edible you ever had.

Cannabis chocolate is fairly easy to make. You will need to make the cannabis butter ahead of time and melt it with chocolate. The fountain does the rest! This fountain contains 1400MG THC. Just a drizzle will get most people high. However, you can adjust the THC levels to however you like.

Why a Chocolate Fondue Fountain?

Why the heck not? The visual appeal of seeing a flowing tower of velvety chocolate will stun any chocolate lover.

And it’s fun thing to do and makes you feel like a kid again. There’s something so satisfying about dipping a large, firm marshmallow into warm, dripping chocolate and then getting to taste it. And then getting to do it again and again.

We had a large chocolate fountain at our wedding and our guests flocked to it like kids in a candy store. It was the one thing that people fondly remembered about our wedding.

And now, chocolate fountains are available in smaller, more manageable sizes for home use.

What kind of chocolate do you use in a chocolate fountain?

How to Make a Cannabis Chocolate Fountain

Use Wilton Fondue Chocolate. Made from premium ingredients for superior melting and a delicious chocolate flavor, it’s the ideal consistency for fountain and fondue use and is the perfect coating for dipped chocolate fountain treats like strawberries, brownies, marshmallows and much more.

Ingredients

  • 10 ounces of weed chocolate
  • ½ cup of white milk
  • 2 tablespoons of cannabutter
  • ½ teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • ¾ cup of water

Tools

  • 1 medium glass bowl
  • 1 mixing tool
  • 1 saucepan

Instructions

  1. Add the chocolate, milk, and cannabutter to a medium sized glass bowl.
  2. Place the bowl in the middle of the saucepan.
  3. Fill the pan halfway full of water and set the heat to medium.
  4. Use a stirring tool to combine the ingredients and scrape the edges of the dish to keep the weed chocolate sauce from burning. Continue to cook it until the mixture reaches a smooth and creamy consistency. If at any point you notice chunks beginning to appear just add a bit more milk to fix it.
  5. Once the ingredients have entirely melted, you can remove the pan from the burner and add in the vanilla.
  6. Stir the vanilla into the weed chocolate sauce and serve it immediately or cool and refrigerate it to reheat later using the same warm bath technique. If the cannabis fondu gets too thick after serving you can heat the mixture in 30-second intervals using a microwave.

Notes:
You can add cannabis infused butter instead of using infused cream, but it makes the chocolate flavor less intense. You can also add whole milk depending on your thickness preference.

Flavor and texture substitutes

How to Make a Cannabis Chocolate Fountain

Not everyone prefers the same amount of sweetness in a fondu and some people like a specific texture. Here are just a few substitutes you can use in this recipe for a massive change in both flavor and consistency.

  • For a less intense chocolate flavor use half and half cream instead of milk.
  • If you prefer a deeper delicious chocolaty goodness use a bar of more bitter chocolate that contains anywhere from 65-70 percent and add an extra ¼ cup of milk.
  • To get a softer chocolate flavor use cream instead of milk.
  • Use white weed chocolate instead of milk chocolate for a sweet vanilla twist.
  • Add ½ teaspoon of mint, peppermint, orange, or any other flavor you might like instead of vanilla extract.
  • More experienced cannabis consumers may prefer a higher dose of either THC or CBD. If you want a more potent fondu than consider using cannabis-infused milk or adding 20-30 drops of tincture to the liquid right before it’s served.

Things to Know About Chocolate Fountains

I want to prepare you for the realities of owning your own chocolate fountain because there are things to be aware of.

1. Chocolate fountains can be loud.

The lower priced chocolate fountains like mine, can be loud. The pump is as loud as an older car running its motor (not a Tesla!).

So, it can be a little hard on your ears. But it didn’t bother my kids.

If the loud sound is an issue, search for a higher quality, higher priced fountain and check reviews about the noise.

2. Chocolate fountains need to be properly leveled in order for it to flow evenly.

One thing that’s surprising about chocolate fountains is that they must be leveled in order for them work correctly. So the fountains themselves have built in levelers at the feet.

It might take some practice to get the hang of it. So if it’s your first time, give yourself some time to figure out how to level it.

3. You have to get the viscosity right for the chocolate to flow well.

When I did all semi-sweet chocolate with oil, the fountain flowed well. However, when I tried blending the chocolates while filming the video, it didn’t flow as well.

It could have been that I let the melted chocolate sit too long while I set up my filming background and other things. Or maybe something changed when I blended different chocolates.

I added more oil, a little at a time and let the fountain flow for more than 20 minutes. Eventually, the problem was corrected and the chocolate flowed better.

4. Clean up can be an ordeal.

Once you’re done with your chocolate fountain, you HAVE TO, have to clean it up right away! You can’t let the chocolate sit there after turning off the motor and heat or it will harden up.

Chocolate will harden at room temperature and make clean up very difficult! So do yourself a favor and clean up the chocolate fountain immediately after you’re done.

If you’re not ready to clean up, then let the fountain keep running until you’re ready.

5. You must melt the chocolate before adding it to the chocolate fountain.

FYI: Chocolate fountains do not melt chocolate. They are only built to keep the chocolate warm.

When I was a wedding videographer, I remember watching a large, professional chocolate fountain being set up. They poured in liquid chocolate into the fountain. And I have no idea how they melted the chocolate before and kept it warm until they arrived at the venue.

Melting chocolate is not difficult but it’s an extra step to think of when planning to set up your chocolate fountain. I detail how to melt chocolate below.
