Week 6: Valentine’s Day Chocolate Fondue

Chocolate Fondue

Valentine’s day is Monday! Whether you celebrate by going out to a fancy dinner or eating at home, there’s always room for dessert! 

Before my parents gifted Chris’ and I with our own fondue pot, I melted chocolate in my crockpot whenever I wanted it! Its super quick and only takes an hour on low to melt into the perfect rich chocolate for dipping. I like to dip pretzels, strawberries, marshmallows and mini donuts in mine but you can also do bananas, pound cake and graham crackers. Anything that would be delicious covered in chocolate!

    I do this ALL the time! I just use dairy free chocolate chips and melt them…and it’s the perfect chocolately treat. I love dipping fruit like apples, berries, and pineapple! I need to get some gluten-free mini donuts cause that just blew my mind!

    What a fun idea! we love our fondue pot but sometimes I just don’t feel like getting it out and cleaning all of the parts.
