If you’re looking for a fun way to celebrate Valentine’s Day, or any day for that matter, chocolate fondue is your answer.

The first time I had chocolate fondue was a glorious moment. All that chocolate-y goodness – I definitely had a sugar high that day. I was at a popular fondue restaurant and it was years before I started this website.

Even then, I was trying to figure out ways to have fondue at home.

Enter the slow cooker.

It has brought me many savory delights over the years. Slow cooker sweet and spicy meatballs – the easiest appetizer ever. Slow cooker mango pulled pork sandwiches – great for dinner or lunch. And slow cooker chicken tacos – whether it’s in a lettuce wrap or in a bowl, you can’t go wrong.

I obviously love my slow cooker.

The great thing about fondue in a slow cooker is you don’t need one of those 3-tiered fondue fountains you see at weddings or a fondue pot.  You can use a fondue pot if you have it, but if you don’t, a small crockpot and some wooden skewers is all you need.

Slow Cooker Chocolate Fondue

My slow cooker chocolate fondue recipe uses only 3 ingredients. You can easily buy them ahead of time and keep the ingredients in your pantry.

One of the ingredients is a jar of seedless raspberry jam. Not a fan? Substitute your favorite jam flavor! 

This recipe is definitely chocolate fondue for a crowd. If you have leftovers, transfer them to a container (or a mason jar!) and store in the fridge for 5-7 days.

What Should I Dip into Chocolate Fondue

There are many foods that can be dipped into dessert fondue. Some examples are:

What Tools Do I Need for Chocolate Fondue

You will need a mini slow cooker or a fondue pot to start. To dip into the chocolate, I usually use long wooden skewers – they are cheap and I always have them in a drawer. If you plan to make this often, consider investing in some fondue forks.

Chocolate Fondue Recipe Variations

You can make one small change to this recipe and have a myriad of recipes.

Switch out the chocolate chips!

You can use dark chocolate chips, white chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, or mint chocolate chips. Try out all of the different varieties to suit your flavor tastes.
