Fondue Night

Tonight we had fondue night with the kids.

My hubby & I love fondue. We've been to a REALLY nice fondue restaurant a few times. But the "really nice" also implies "really expensive". We don't usually do expensive with the least the first time they have something. Did I mention that we also don't have the $ to do expensive right now??? Well we don't. We weren't so sure about the kids liking fondue yet. None of them are picky. But really, who doesn't like dipping things in ooey gooey cheese & chocolate??? Not at the same time people!!!

So our dinner was Swiss Fondue!

  • Swiss cheese
  • Monterey Jack cheese
  • 1 packet of dry onion soup powder
  • water
  • grated nutmeg
  • garlic powder
  • corn starch slurry 
Served with:
  • seasoned grilled chicken
  • lightly steamed broccoli
  • lightly steamed green beans
  • French baguette
  • & green apple
All items cut to bite sized pieces & then dipped into cheesy yumminess. 

Dessert was Semi-sweet Chocolate Fondue!
  • Semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • heavy whipping cream
  • heated & stirred until thick & creamy
Served with:
  • mini marshmallows
  • green apples (cut into slices)
  • bananas (cut into 1" chunks)
  • whole strawberries
Fondue...FUNdue night was an amazing success!!!
The kids ate everything!!!
Oh and it was SO good.
