Cheese Fondue Recipe

Need a hearty, warm-you-up family snack? Get some inspiration from the '60s with this delicious treat, perfect paired with bread or raw veggies

Chilly weather got you and the kids pining for some comfort food? Try some cheese – fondue style! That's right, mom and dad: This dish – with French and Swiss roots and a party hit in the U.S. back in the 1960s – is a tasty, healthy snack with blast-from-the-past appeal sure to entertain children (and parents!). And since it's a communal dish, it's fun for the entire family to dig in.

Our cheese fondue recipe – cooked up by Alyssa Martina, Metro Parent publisher – features a yummy mix of gruyere and cheddar cheeses, plus other seasonings. Or toss in other cheese you might have in your fridge: In Switzerland, after all, fondue was reportedly a trick to using up hardened cheese (since it's all melted down).

Sure, you could serve it in a snazzy fondue pot – but that's not a necessity. You can simply sample this gooey concoction straight out of the same heavy pan (either stainless steel or non-stick works) you use to blend the ingredients. Slice up some crusty French bread or vegetables (broccoli and apple slices work well) for a dunk-able snack that's got a healthy kick.

Give our cheese fondue a try!
