Make It a Fondue Night

Originating in Switzerland in the 18th century, fondue was a creative way for remote villagers to improve the taste of their aged breads and cheeses through the long winter months. Though we now have the luxury of the freshest ingredients, fondue still brings people together for a warm, communal meal. Kids love dipping sauces and eating with their fingers, so fondue night is a fun meal with easy family recipes that everyone will ask for again and again.

Spinach and Artichoke Fondue: Try it restaurant-style with tortilla chips or warm pita bread.

Chipotle Cheese Fondue: Dip fajita ingredients without the wrap—delicious with grilled chicken or steak, bell peppers, and other steamed vegetables.

Tomato Pizza Fondue: Enjoy with bread sticks and your favorite pizza toppings: mushroom caps, peppers, olives, artichoke hearts, pineapple, chicken, beef cubes, meatballs, etc.

Peanut Butter Cup Fondue: What wouldn’t taste good with this? Let’s start with pretzel rods, marshmallows, fruit slices, and graham crackers. You can take it from there.
