CrockPot Fondue {Things That Happen When Business is Slow}

Crockpot FondueA few weeks ago, a co-worker and I decided to order the new Crock-Pot Lunch Crock we found on Amazon.  Our intentions were pure… we would use it to heat up soup or whatever we brought for lunch when we didn’t want to trek back to the microwave.  It would be ours, shared in our shared office space.  Sweet!

Working in the construction industry, we have our slow days – especially when the weather is bad.  Enter: The Polar Vortex.  When it’s 7 degrees, people who don’t have to be outside around here aren’t.  Business was slow to say the least.  We decided it was the perfect time to put the Crock-Pot to use, but not as intended.

I mentioned a few days ago that I mentor at an elementary school through The Big Brothers Big Sisters organization.  Every year the school sells World’s Finest chocolate bars as a fundraiser and our office buys two boxes from the school.  They sit here and stare at us until we resell them all to our customers.  Or ourselves.  You see where this is going, yes?

5 candy bars broken up in the Crock-Pot, a little vanilla coffee creamer to thin it out, some stirring… voila!  Chocolate fondue!  For dipping, we had graham crackers, pretzels, marshmallows and some almond butter.  The chocolate bars we used were caramel filled, with almonds and plain milk chocolate.  My personal favorite was a marshmallow stuck onto a pretzel, smeared with almond butter and dipped in the chocolate.  So good!

This little Crock-Pot is awesome!  Next, we’re going to see if it also works as well for cheese fondue.  Wish us luck!  (Also, we’ve yet to use the Crock-Pot to heat an actual lunch.  Oh well.)
