For me, fondue never goes out of style, especially when it’s Slow Cooker Toffee Fondue. I served this for Sunday dessert last week and the family went wild. For dippers, I include pound cake cubes, marshmallows, and fruit. That way, there’s something for everyone.

How to make Slow Cooker Toffee Fondue with Pound Cake Cubes and Fruit

Part of my large family eats lunch with us every Sunday after church. The entire family eats with us every other Sunday. We all look forward to spending the afternoon together watching or playing sports, talking, laughing and just being together. I’m still on cloud nine because I beat my oldest grandson and my husband in a basketball game of Around the World. Yeah, I’m the champion . . . for the time being. I’m also big-time competitive.

I usually make the dessert for Sunday lunch on Saturday, but I was crazy busy this past Saturday so I decided to make a fondue. I have several small slow cookers and a few large ones. This one works best in a small slow cooker. You can purchase one by clicking the photo below.

This Toffee Fondue is perfect to serve at fall parties and family gatherings. It’s easy and delicious – just the way I like it.

Helpful Hint: To save even more time, I purchased a Sara Lee pound cake, marshmallows, and fruit to use for dipping. I cubed the cake and sliced the apples. Of course, I use skewers for dipping.
