Looking for an easy Chocolate Fondue recipe to make in your crockpot?

(This post may contain affiliate links. Please read my disclosures for more information.)

We love to visit the Melting Pot and order the full fondue, the meats you cook in broth, the vegetables and bread cubes dipped in the cheese fondue, and then all the yummy fruit and cake to dip in the chocolate. Unfortunately, the high cost (it’s always around $100 for the two of us) prevents us from going very often, and especially from taking all of our kids.

No worries, though! Fondue is easy and SO much cheaper to make at home! And it’s fun! Instead of doing the meats like the Melting Pot does, where each guest cooks his own meats in the shared pot of broth, I pre-cook all of the meats. I just don’t want my little people messing around with raw meat, ha, ha. 

I pre-cook a tray of bite-sized meat chunks and serve the meats with the veggies and bread cubes dipped in the cheese fondue. Here is my cheese fondue recipe. Afterward, we all enjoy chocolate fondue together. My kids love fondue night!




Chocolate Fondue Ingredients:

  • 12 oz semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 c. heavy whipping cream
  • 1 t. vanilla extract
  • pinch of salt


Chocolate Fondue Directions:

Combine the chocolate, cream, vanilla and salt in a crockpot (the smaller the better). Cover and cook on high for 30 minutes, whisking occasionally, then turn the heat to low.

Serve with strawberries, pineapple, grapes, bananas, orange segments, apples, pretzels, marshmallows, cookies, cubed pound cake, gummi bears, cinnamon bears, and whatever else you have on hand that seems like it would be yummy dipped in chocolate.
Isn’t that just about the easiest chocolate fondue recipe you ever made?

I always dish the fondue sauces up onto plates for my littles, so we don’t have any double-dipping going on. It also contains the mess better.

Yum! I hope you enjoy your delicious chocolate fondue with your family.


Be sure to enjoy our swiss fondue recipe, too! It’s almost as easy as this one and made for your crockpot.

      Fondue night is one of our favorite dates! The hard part is keeping my kiddos out of it so we can actually have a date instead of a zoo, ha, ha!

  4. Oh, I love The Melting Pot. But yeah, it can get pricey! That’s so cool you do fondue at home. I might need to try this chocolate recipe someday.


    1. Amy Saunders says:

      I think my favorite thing about The Melting Pot is that when we order the full fondue it takes us like two hours to finish — and my husband and I actually get to talk to each other! And we never take the kids, because then it would cost us a thousand bucks instead of a hundred — so it’s quality time — just the two of us.

  5. Aaaahhh Amy you did it again! Girl I’m gonna have to get a cookbook just for the recipes I get from you! Gonna try this one soon too.

  6. This fondue recipe sounds super yummy! One of my favorite treats is strawberries dipped in chocolate fondue. Will be trying your recipe soon!

    1. Amy Saunders says:

      Strawberries in chocolate fondue is one of my favorites, too! I also love them dipped in straight chocolate, so it hardens around the strawberry. I always make dipped strawberries for Valentine’s Day.

  7. I will be trying this very soon! I love all things that are covered in fondue!!!!! And when it is chocolate, it is even better! =)

    1. Amy Saunders says:

      Mmmmm, yep! Chocolate fondue all the way!

  8. Blue DeBell says:

    This looks too yummy! I love melted chocolate, but I always find a way to royally mess it up, maybe the crockpot is the answer to my prayers!

    1. Amy Saunders says:

      Chocolate is hard because it’s so temperature sensitive. Whenever I get lazy and try to melt it on the stovetop without a double boiler, I mess it up, too! But it’s perfect in the crockpot because the crockpot is even, slow, low heat.
