Dippers: cubed pound cake, fruit, pretzels, cookies, marshmallows

Place ingredients (except dippers) into crock pot. Cover and cook on high for 30 minutes. Stir well. Cook 1 more hour on low. Use skewer or small tongs to dip into the chocolate.

Pound Cake

1 cup butter
1/2 cup shortening
3 cups white sugar
5 eggs
1 T vanilla extract
1 1/4 cups milk
3 cups flour, sifted
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour (cake release) a 10 inch bundt pan. Sift together the flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside.

In mixer cream together the butter, shortening and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla. Beat in the flour mixture alternately with the milk. Pour batter into prepared pan.

Bake in the preheated oven for 80 to 90 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Let cool in pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack and cool completely.
