Dessert Recipe – Crock Pot Chocolate Fondue

Are you looking for a thrifty dessert idea?  This is a recipe I have been making for years and seems to always be a hit, so I thought I would share it with you.  Plus most the items I already have in my “stockpile” which is an added bonus!

You will need:

  • 1 bag of mini marshmallows
  • 4-6 Hershey’s Full sized chocolate bars broken into bits
  • 1/2 cup whipping cream  or half and half (add more to thin if you would like)
  • Crock Pot
  • Fondue sticks

Treats to dip into it:

  • Apples
  • Grapes
  • Bananas
  • Pound cake or Angel Food Cake
  • Brownie bites
  • Rice Krispie treats
  • Oranges
  • Cookies
  • pretzels

In a Crock pot add Marshmallows, Chocolate bits and Cream

Put the lid on, and turn on high

In about 20-30 mins it will start to melt, give it a stir

Stir again  in 10 minutes

Stir every 10 minutes, till it is smooth and creamy.  Depending on how hot your crock pot is and how even it heats it will take 40 minutes to an hour.  Once it is mixed well, TURN DOWN to keep warm setting.  Eat right away or it  will keep for several hours so you can make it ahead of time if you like!

If you do not have a crock pot the same recipe can be made on a stove top over low heat, stirring continually as to not scald the cream.
