Hands-on Time
10 Mins
Total Time
1 Hour 40 Mins
Serves 12 (serving size: about 3 tablespoons fondue and 6 strawberries)

Make this a kid-friendly dessert by omitting the bourbon and increasing the vanilla to 1 1/2 teaspoons. You can also serve 10 thin pretzel sticks for dipping, but note that this will add about 21 calories and 96mg sodium.

How to Make It

Combine all ingredients except strawberries in a 4-cup glass measuring cup. Place cup in a 6-quart slow cooker. Cover and cook on LOW 1 hour. Stir well with a whisk; cover and cook until melted, about 30 more minutes. Reduce heat to WARM. Serve with strawberries, using fondue forks or skewers for dipping.

Had this on Christmas Eve and it was a bit hit.  We used strawberries and chunks of ripe pear.  Delicious.  The only change I had to make was using all semi-sweet chips as we couldn't find the milk chocolate chips at the store.  Also no fat-free condensed milk, so just used the regular.  Still great.  Didn't really taste the bourbon.  Love the prep, super easy.  Had it all ready to go and all I had to do was plug in the crock pot and stir it a couple of times and voila!  The family was impressed.
