While growing up, a friend's mother would make this fondue when I spent the night. Every time I make it, it brings back fond childhood memories. I love the rich flavor. Happy dipping! —Tracy Lawson, Farr West, Utah
My wife was a great cook and I loved to help her. She served this dip with crackers, pretzels or fresh fruit at our family get-togethers, especially during the holidays.

For a different appetizer or snack, try these appealing "pizzas" from Mary Lou Wayman of Salt Lake City, Utah. With their mild blue cheese and onion flavor and crispy pita crust, they're sure to hit the spot with your favorite summer beverage.
Nothing tastes better with lasagna than warm bread. This recipe makes just enough for my husband, Dan, and me, but it can be easily doubled to feed a crowd. It has a nice garlic flavor.—Cookie Curci-Wright, San Jose, California
How about a fast festive appetizer just for two? These hot, crispy little bites boast a rich creamy filling with a hint of crab. “They simply melt in your mouth,” promises Robin Boynton of Harbor Beach, Michigan. Suggestion: serve wontons with plum sauce or sweet-and-sour sauce for dipping.
This is my all-time favorite to serve or bring to parties. The combination of popcorn and nuts is very satisfying, and even the kids can help make this treat. —Shirley Nordblum
