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

"Why do I not do this more often? I LOVE this, and had to search a little for my old fondue pot. Thanks for giving my memory a reminder of how good this dish is!"

"This is a wonderful fondue for either bread or veggies. Instead of using beer, I always have on hand some Pinot Grigio that I use instead."
