Ingredients

Cheese Fondue

  • 1 cup cooking wine can use chicken broth instead
  • 1/2 pound cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1/2 pound gouda cheese, shredded
  • 2 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg

Chocolate Fondue

  • 10 ounces semisweet chocolate pieces
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup heavy cream
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Instructions

Cheese Fondue

  • Turn your fondue pot (or pot on the stove) to medium-high. Add cooking wine or chicken broth and bring to a simmer. Turn heat down to medium. Add cheeses 1/4 pound at a time. Stir after each addition of cheese until melted.
  • Stir in flour. When the cheese has melted and flour is incorporated, stir in salt and nutmeg. Turn heat to low and serve with dippers!

Chocolate Fondue

  • In a saucepan, combine the chocolate milk and cream over low heat. Stir often until the chocolate is completely melted and the mixture is smooth.
  • Add the vanilla. If needed, stir in heavy cream or milk one tablespoon at a time until the consistency is how you like it.
  • Pour the mixture into a fondue pot or small slow cooker to keep warm while serving. Serve with dippers of your choice!
