When I was in high school, The Melting Pot was my favorite date restaurant. I loved the skewers, the bite-sized pieces of bread, and the fact that there was always dessert, and not just any dessert, but a pot full of melted chocolate accompanied by chunks of cheesecake, banana, and tiny rice crispy treats. In my early twenties, I bought a fondue set, but I was disappointed to find that it wasn’t hot enough to melt chocolate; I had to prepare the dip on the stove and the “fondue pot” was really just a warmer. Then I discovered you can make and serve fondue in a slow cooker. It’s fast, easy, and delicious!
The original recipe for chocolate fondue was actually made from candy: melted Toblerones! It also contained kirsch, but I prefer caramel and vanilla to almonds and cherry flavor. The possibilities for this luscious chocolate are endless. I’ve suggested some dipping options below, but feel free to add other fruits, cookies, or anything you’d like to eat covered in chocolate.
Note: All slow cookers are a little bit different in temperature and calibration. This recipe was tested in Cooktop Cove's Test Kitchen using this slow cooker, which is available for purchase here.
