Reviews forBread Bowl Fondue
"Not a big fan of Velveeta cheese, but overall this recipe was pretty good! Nice addition for a dinner party that I hosted."
"This has become my daughter's favorite dip. I put ingredients in bowl and microwave 2 minutes at a time (stir) until melted and then put in hollowed out Hawaiian bread bowl. I cut up Hawaiian rolls into cubes for dipping, but anything is good in this dip. I did add more Velveeta. You don't have to be real accurate on amounts. I do it a little different each time, and it's always good."
