Slow Cooker Dark Chocolate Fondue
Originally, posted in our Healthy Kitchen Hacks – Holiday Baking Edition (check it out for some terrific quick tips), this is a fun dessert idea for a holiday party featuring dark chocolate, lots of fruit for dipping and a Crockpot. I got this idea from the 2015 December issue of Cooking Light.The Easiest Dark Chocolate Fondue Recipe - made in your slow cooker! @tspbasil #healthykitchenhacks Click To Tweet
I used their slow cooker fondue method (cook on LOW for 1 1/2 hours and then turn to WARM for dipping) and applied it to Ellie Krieger’s easy Dark Chocolate Fondue, which features dark chocolate, evaporated skim milk and lots of fresh fruit for dipping.
A few years ago, I brought it over to a friend’s house with strawberries, sliced bananas, pineapple, clementine sections and grapes – both the parents and kids LOVED it.
If you need to make it vegan, use swap in coconut milk for the evaporated milk. And another fondue tip from Cooking Light–> pat the fruit dry before dipping so fondue coats well.
