Fun-do Fondue

Fondues are a hit at our gatherings. The younger crowd dips bread cubes, and the adults like apples and pears. Celery, cucumbers and bell peppers work, too. —Judy Batson, Tampa, Florida
  • Total Time
    Prep/Total Time: 20 min.
  • Makes
    3 cups


  • 2 cups shredded Jarlsberg cheese
  • 1/2 cup shredded Swiss cheese
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • Cubed French bread, sliced pears and assorted fresh vegetables


  • In a small bowl, combine the first 5 ingredients; toss to combine. In a saucepan, combine cream, broth and honey; bring just to a boil, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat to medium-low. Add 1/2 cup cheese mixture; stir constantly until almost completely melted. Continue adding cheese, 1/2 cup at a time, allowing cheese to almost melt completely between additions. Continue stirring until thickened and smooth. Stir in lemon juice.
  • Transfer mixture to a heated fondue pot; keep fondue bubbling gently. Serve with bread, pears and vegetables for dipping. If fondue becomes too thick, stir in a little additional broth.

    This is my own recipe and I made it again this past weekend. I could not get any Jarlsberg cheese so I used all Swiss, which was a good substitute. And knowing that this particular crowd liked things a bit more spicy, I added some hot sauce to the mix, and it was a huge hit. By the way, if you have any leftover, it makes a really good pasta sauce, in a recipe that usually calls for Alfredo. Judy Batson (aka Beema)

    This is so delicious !!!! I added white wine instead of chicken broth only because I did not have anymore chicken broth !!! The whipping cream and honey really makes this fondue !

    This was a big hit at our Oktoberfest style dinner. The only thing I changed was to add some white wine instead of honey and lemon. Absolutely delicious-we dunked cubes of rye and sourdough bread as well as cut up bread pretzels.
