So I have to tell the story about how I used to always spend hundreds and hundreds of dollars every time a special occasion came around.

Valentine’s. Anniversaries. Birthdays. It didn’t matter what it was. If it was special, I wanted to do it up big.

And for me, that meant going to The Melting Pot. 

If you don’t know about The Melting Pot, let me just tell you. It’s all things fondue. Every table has a built-in burner equipped to make fondue right there in front of you. You can start with cheese fondue, move onto cooking your meats and veggies in broth, and of course finishing it off with chocolate fondue. All of this for over $100 every time! I’ve literally never left the restaurant for under $100.

And to be honest, the food isn’t even all that great. It’s an over-priced restaurant that’s way more about the experience than it is the food. Yet I always used to insist that we go there.

Because you know what it is about The Melting Pot that I absolutely loved? I love the intimacy of fondue. There’s just something about dipping your food in a vat of chocolate that screams date night. (Similar to sharing a Chocolate Molten Lava Cake with your hot date)

The truth of the matter is that it doesn’t have to cost a billion dollars to make a sexy date night happen right at home!

Plus, by making your chocolate fondue at home, you can totally customize it to your liking.

For example, I prefer dark chocolate over milk chocolate. It pairs so nicely with fruits and actually has some great health benefits to it.

Also, I prefer to use plant-based ingredients in my desserts when at all possible. And by making it at home, it’s 100% possible.

That means no butter, no milk, and dairy-free chocolates.

Maybe your fondue of choice uses milk chocolate, marshmallows, and crushed graham crackers for a s’mores version. Or maybe your adds caramel sauce and nuts for a turtle delight! Or maybe coconut.. oh yeah, I’ve gotta try this with coconut.

Regardless of how you mix up your chocolate, I know your honey would be absolutely thrilled to know that you’re not racking up the Valentine’s bill this year by spending it on expensive restaurants. Instead, start melting down the chocolate in the slow-cooker while you’re enjoying dinner and it’ll be ready as soon as that sweet tooth hits.

Prep Time 2 minutes
Cook Time 1 hour
Total Time 1 hour 2 minutes

Ingredients

  • 9- ounces dairy-free dark chocolate chips (I use Enjoy Life)
  • 4 ounces 70-75% dark chocolate , chopped
  • 1 cup full fat coconut milk solids , chilled (see notes)
  • 1/2 cup almond milk
  • 2 Tbsp dairy-free butter (I use Earth Balance)
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/8 tsp salt

Dippers:

  • strawberries
  • pretzel sticks
  • bananas
  • apples

Instructions

  • Lightly spray slow cooker with nonstick cooking spray. Alternatively, you could use a slow-cooker liner that you can just toss when you’re finished.
  • Add all of the fondue ingredients and stir. Cover and cook on LOW for 1 hour, stirring occasionally.
  • Fondue is ready when chocolate is completely melted and smooth. It should be about an hour, depending on the heat of your slow cooker
  • Turn slow cooker to warm and serve with assorted dippers.

Notes

For the coconut milk, you want coconut milk from a can, usually found in the asian foods section. Choose full fat, and refrigerate it for at least 12 hours before using. When opening the can, do not shake first. Only scoop out the solids for this recipe, saving the liquid part for a smoothie or some other recipe.
