How Long does it Take to Melt Chocolate in a Crock Pot:

After adding in the chocolate chips and the other ingredients, cook on low for about 1 to 2 hours. What helps to cook the chocolate evenly is by stirring it every 20 minutes.

What type of Chocolate is best for Fondue?

We recommend using quality chocolate for this dessert. Since this recipe only requires a few ingredients, I do like to buy good chocolate to make this chocolate fondue.

We used semi-sweet chocolate and milk chocolate in this recipe, but you can easily use different flavors. Feel free to use chopped bakers chocolate as well.

Ingredients needed - chocolate chips, heavy whipping cream, vanilla, salt

Ingredients: 

  • Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips 
  • Milk Chocolate Chips 
  • Heavy Whipping Cream 
  • Vanilla Extract 
  • Salt 
  • Dippers: Marshmallows, graham crackers, pretzels, fruit, cake, etc. 

How to Make Fondue in a Crock Pot: 

  • Step 1 – Place Ingredients in the slow cooker – Place the chocolate, heavy cream, vanilla extract and salt in a small crock pot. I used a 2 quart crock pot for this recipe. 
Adding the ingredients to the slow cooker
  • Step 2 – Cover and Cook – Cover on low for 1-2 hours, stirring every 20-30 minutes, until fully melted. 
  • Step 3 – Serve and Enjoy – Then serve with your favorite dippers and enjoy! Keep in slow cooker to warm and serve.

Best Chocolate Fondue Dippers:

This Chocolate Fondue Dessert is delicious served with your favorite dippers. These are some of my favorites.

I like to setup a charcuterie board of all of my favorite dippers. The great thing about this dessert is you can serve the fondue in the crock pot on the warm setting. This allows it to keep it warm while serving.

  • Fresh Fruit – Strawberries, bananas, pineapple, slice apples or cherries.
  • Cookies – Really any types of cookies will work dipping into this melted chocolate. I like to get the mini size cookies to dip into the chocolate or another favorite is Oreos.
  • Cake – Dice up angel food cake or pound cake and serve on your platter. Really any type of cake would work. You can even dice up brownies, rice krispie treats, or granola bars.
  • Crackers – Add your favorite crackers or pretzels for a sweet and salty treat. My kids have even dipped their favorite chips in the chocolate dessert.

Chocolate Fondue Variations:

  • Make Peanut Butter Fondue – As the chocolate is melting mix in regular peanut butter to the chocolate. For even more peanut butter flavor, add in more before serving.
  • Add in Toffee – This chocolate fondue is delicious with added in toffee bits. We think this is the ultimate chocolate fondue mixture.
  • Holiday Chocolate Fondue – If you want to serve for the holiday, add in a teaspoon of peppermint extract. You can always add in more for more peppermint flavor.

How to Store Leftover Fondue:

Store the leftovers in an airtight container for up to 1 week.

Can you Reheat Leftover Fondue?

When reheating, add in more cream or milk to thin out the chocolate as it will thicken as its stored.

We like reheating in the slow cooker or if you have a small amount, reheat in the microwave.
