Chocolate Caramel Raspberry Fondue (For Mini Crock Pot)

I first tasted this fondue at a friend's Christmas party about 8-9 years ago. I think just about everyone left that party with a copy of the recipe! I have served this at my own parties many times with great success. I enjoy serving this with strawberries, fresh pineapple chunks, cantaloupe, bananas, and sponge cake as the dippers. This makes enough fondue to partly fill a medium-sized crockpot.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 340.19 g package semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 396.89 g package caramels, unwrapped
  • 340.19 g can evaporated milk
  • 118.29 ml sweet unsalted butter
  • 118.29 ml raspberry preserves or 118.29 ml jam
  • sponge cakes or poundcake, for dipping
  • chunks fresh fruit, for dipping

Directions

  1. In a 2-quart saucepan, combine chocolate chips, caramels, milk, butter, raspberry jam.
  2. Cook over low heat, stirring often, until melted and smooth- this may take a while, about 20-30 minutes (do not be tempted to rush things by raising the heat or your fondue will burn).
  3. When everything has melted together, pour into a either a fondue pot or a crockpot set on low heat.
  4. Serve along with a platter of bite-sized pieces of sponge cake, pound cake, and fresh fruit and some fondue forks or skewers to dip into the fondue.
Most Helpful

I served this at the party and did get good reviews. I, however, thought it was a bit too sweet with the raspberry jam.
