Crockpot Chocolate Fondue

Let me introduce you to the single most amazing thing that could ever  happen to a chocolate loving family- Crockpot Chocolate Fondue!! Now this was perhaps the easiest yummiest dessert that we have ever tried. Even easier than a boxed brownie mix, our family's quick-I-need-chocolate staple. I suggest you gather up your tiny crockpot and the few necessary supplies and make some yourself. What makes the experience even sweeter is when you eat it together as a family and ooh and ahhh over its' simplicity and with chocolate all over your face, enjoy Shrek as it plays on Cartoon Network. Quality time, I tell ya! Gotta love that. :)
The following is a conglomeration of several recipes that I discovered on my quest for the perfect one. This is how we did it:

Not. Sharing. My. Fondue.
Chocolate Crockpot Fondue
Marshmallows were her fave.


1 cup half and half
1/4 cup butter
24 ounces semisweet chocolate chips (you can use milk if you prefer or a combination of any)
1 tsp vanilla


Accidents happen...

Preheat small crockpot about 30 minutes on low heat. Set aside.
Combine half and half and butter in a saucepan over medium heat until it comes to a simmer, stirring constantly. Remove from the heat. Add chocolate and vanilla and stir until combined and creamy. Transfer to pre-warmed crockpot and keep on warm setting. Serve immediately with fruit, marshmallows, pound cake, Nilla wafers, graham crackers, pretzels or anything else that makes you happy.
He favored the Nilla wafers.

Here is what I found out about leftovers, if there are any...

Cover leftover mixture and refrigerate. To reheat, place crock in microwave, uncovered, for 30 second intervals on 50% power, stir and repeat until chocolate is smooth again, but be extra careful not to overheat or the chocolate will burn.

  1. I love fondue. Never tried it in a crockpot before. Sounds yummy. If you get a chance I would love you to link your fondue up to More the Merrier Monday. It starts tonight and lasts through Wednesday. See you there.
