Today is the second Saturday of January, and don't die of shock or anything, but I have the second Slow Cooker Saturday post of 2014 ready for you.
Don't worry, I am not going to document every Slow Cooker Saturday in this fashion. Could you just imagine...
"Guys, it is the 22nd Saturday in 2014, good old May 31st and I have the 22nd Slow Cooker Saturday post of 2014 for you..."
Goosh. I can't imagine you would still be my friend if I did that. AND P.S., yes I did have to look up what date the 22nd Saturday of 2014 would fall on. I am a geek. You know it!
Today's recipe doesn't fall under the Sunday Dinner worthy category.
However, it does fall under the Yum and Yes, Please categories. This recipe also falls under the romantic Valentine's Day dessert category.
Who doesn't love themselves some chocolate fondue?
No one I know, and I know like 30 people. Okay, maybe 50. Hehehehe.
Anyway, I like chocolate fondue. This Slow Cooker Chocolate Fondue is ridiculously easy. Ridiculous, I tell you. There are only 4 ingredients. The ingredients melt and morph together in less than two hours and then the chocolate fondue is ready to devour. I also found that it can set in the slow cooker on warm for several hours.
The fondue was so good that we demolished quite handily a package of strawberries in less than 10 minutes. Dipping them in smooth, rich chocolate will do that. The Hubs even found it quite delightful to use the angel food cake and the strawberry in one giant dipping and scarf down the two together. He was quite proud of himself for concocting that culinary creation.
Middle, upon finishing all his "dip-ables", decided the left over chocolate should not be wasted, and he tipped back the his bowl like a giant cup and drank his fondue. Awesome. I have four boys and they have boy manners.
Needless to say it was enjoyed by all.
This Chocolate Fondue is for sure a quick and easy recipe. Plus it is a yummy and fun dessert.
adapted from America's Test Kitchen
1 1/2 cups milk chocolate chips
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
1 1/3 cups heavy cream
1 Tablespoon light corn syrup
pinch of salt
Combine the chocolate, cream, corn syrup, and salt in a 3 quart slow cooker. Cover and cook on low for 1 1/2 hours or until the chocolate melts.
Whisk the melted chocolate together until smooth. Serve with fresh fruit or angel food pieces. Can continue to warm in the slow cooker, but make sure to whisk often to keep smooth.
