Fondue {No alcohol Cheese Fondue and Chocolate Fondue}

We LOVE fondue.  Especially chocolate fondue.  So one day last week we decided to have fondue for dinner.  First a cheese fondue and then our regular chocolate fondue.

I went searching on the internet for a cheese fondue recipe and found tons of them.  But all of them called for white wine.  It was actually pretty hard to find one that didn’t have white wine in it.  But I finally did and we loved it.


To make it you will need:

3/4 cup apple juice

1 tsp apple cider vinegar

3 cups shredded cheese (you can use any combination you like – Swiss, cheddar, Monterey Jack, Colby, etc.)

1 tbsp flour

black pepper to taste

Heat the apple juice and vinegar to boiling.  In a separate bowl, toss the cheese, flour, and pepper together.  Reduce heat on the juice to med-low and add the cheese mixture.  Stir until cheese is completely melted.

And then dip in your favorite things.  We did apple slices, sour dough bread, lightly cooked broccoli, celery sticks and pepperoni.


The kids had such a fun time with it.  It was a nice fun way to have dinner.

And then for dessert, our favorite chocolate fondue.


To make it you’ll need:

2 cups dark chocolate chips (or an equivalent amount of your favorite dark chocolate)

1/2 cup heavy cream

3 tbsp vegetable oil

Put everything together in a microwave safe bowl.  Melt for 45 seconds and stir, another 45 seconds and stir, and so on until the chocolate is completely melted.  You just want to be careful not to get the chocolate too hot or it will change the consistency of it.

We dipped strawberries (our favorite thing to dip in chocolate), pineapple, marshmallow, pretzels, and pound cake.

You should try it sometime.  It is so yummy!!!
