Welcome to this slow cooker/crockpot blog. I believe slow cookers are the best thing to happen to modern day cooks. I used mine often when I worked outside the home and continue to do so even in retirement. It is so nice to put food on and forget about it. Slow cookers also allow us to cook many things we would normally have to use the oven for; what a relief in hot Texas weather! Some of these recipes are mine, many are ones I have collected over the years.

3/4 cup butter, cut-up
2 cups firmly packed brown sugar
1 1/4 cups light corn syrup
3 tbsp water
2 cans (14-oz each) sweetened condensed milk
3/4 cup almond toffee bits
2 tsp vanilla extract

In a 4-quart slow cooker or crockpot, combine the butter, brown sugar, corn syrup, water, and condensed milk; cover and cook on low setting for 3 hours.  Stir mixture occasionally until the mixture is smooth.

Stir in the toffee bits and vanilla extract.

Yield: 6 cups fondue

Serving ideas:  For dipping; fresh fruit, especially pear slices, pretzels, shortbread sticks or cookies OR use as a sauce to spoon over ice cream or pound cake.
