How to use an Instant Pot as a fondue pot:

To begin making the fondue, pull out your Instant Pot and place the Instant Pot liner inside.

Then, pour in the 2 cups of water into the bottom of the Instant Pot liner. Once the water is in the bottom, place the large glass on top of the Instant Pot liner.

You will want to try and find one that has a “lip” on it so that it will easily sit on top without the bowl slipping in. It also makes it easier to stir in when the bowl fits comfortably. I used this bowl.

Now, you will need to pour the chocolate chips, heavy cream, vanilla, and salt in the glass bowl. Then, press the “SAUTE” button on the Instant Pot. This will begin to heat up the water in the bottom.

Begin to occasionally stir the chocolate and heavy cream together as the water heats up and the chocolate begins to melt.

Continue stirring the chocolate and cream mixture until it has fully melted and is smooth. This should take about 8-10 minutes.

After the chocolate fondue mixture has completely melted, you need to press the “CANCEL” button and then the “KEEP WARM” button. This will keep the water warm enough to keep the chocolate hot.

You will want to occasionally stir the chocolate fondue to make sure the chocolate continues to be smooth for dipping your favorite food!

Foods to dip in your delicious fondue:

  1. Strawberries
  2. Bananas
  3. Marshmallows
  4. Pretzels
  5. Rice crispy treats
  6. Cinnamon bears
  7. Wafers
  8. Brownies
  9. Blondies
  10. Cut up waffles
  11. Oranges that have been peeled and segmented
  12. Graham crackers
