6 (1-oz each) squares unsweetened chocolate
1 1/2 cups sugar (Since I am now a diabetic I use Splenda granulated)
1/2 cup butter
dash of salt
3 tbsp orange liqueur or creme de cocoa
1/4 cup evaporated milk
Put all the above ingredients into the crockpot or slow cooker and stir until thoroughly mixed. Cover and set on high for 30 minutes to get the chocolate melting. Stir to blend chocolate in. Reduce heat setting to low and continue cooking for 2 to 3 hours. May reduce heat to keep warm setting for 4 to 6 hours, if desired.
Suggested dippers for your fondue: Angel food or pound cake cut into cubes, large marshmallows (kids especially like these), apples, pears, or bananas cut into pieces.
NOTE: If you do not want to use the orange liqueur or creme de cocoa, you can use liquid flavorings. A good example is peppermint flavoring especially at the holidays. Start with a couple of teaspoonsful, taste and add more according to your taste.
