Chocolate Covered Everything, Please

Chocolate fountains are a fan favorite. Therefore, you should be equipped with the highest-quality chocolate. Our recommendations:

  • Grand Marque 58% (GM5822). This chocolate is a workhorse. It can be used for enrobing, dipping, chocolate writing, and of course, chocolate fountains.
  • Grand Marque’s Chocolate Compounds (GM WCOAT22, GM MCOAT22) are amazing coating chocolates with excellent taste, consistency, and fluidity. They also work tremendously well in chocolate fountains and there is no need to add extra fat. 

Time-Saving Superheroes

Your favorite thing to hear: pre-baked. Now that you’ve gained some extra time, use our ready-to-fill shells and tarts for custom creations that are perfectly sized for hor d’ouvres or appetizers.
  • Mini éclairs- buttery and flaky heaven. Fill éclair shells with cream or mousse and top them with chocolate and voila: you’ve got dessert.
  • Mini tarts- a crunchy base for your creative thoughts. Fill these tart shells with mousse, ganache, mascarpone, or fresh fruit. Their size makes them easy to fill and serve as a mini collection/assortment. 

Easy as 1... step

Our 1 step Mousse Mixes are really easy for any in-house team to use- simply add whipping cream. That’s it! Use our White Chocolate (56136) or Chocolate (56134) mousse mixes for an already flavored cream, or use our Neutral Mousse Mix (56000) and customize it with Dreidoppel’s huge assortment of flavor pastes!
