Expert Tips

Fondue isn't just savory cheese sauces. There are also wonderful chocolate dessert fondues. Fruit, pretzels, graham crackers and marshmallows become dippers for rich warm chocolate sauces.

The name fondue comes from the French word "fondre," which means "to melt". Whether cheese, wine or chocolate, fondue tastes great in any language!

Leftover fondue? Thin it with a little milk to turn it into a delicious soup! Top servings with croutons, and serve with apple and pear slices.
