Easy fondue recipes are my newest obsession. This easy cheese fondue has been one of my tried and true recipes over the years! It’s great for almost any holiday occassion, but is surely a treat to enjoy on Valentine’s Day! What says I love you more than a creamy, hot bowl of melted cheese (or chocolate, chocolate fondue rocks too)
I was inspired to make this recipe after visiting the Melting Pot, an amazing fondue restaurtant. This place is to die for, but it definitely breaks the budget at $100+/couple! That’s without drinks! Don’t get me wrong it was an amazing feast of awesomeness, but it was so good I could eat it once a week. Mama’s bank roll can’t afford that kind of habit!
That’s why I begged the hubster to get us an electric fondue pot and let me dabble at making my own simple fondue recipes. He was skeptical at first that I could pull this off, but let’s just say he might’ve put on ten pounds because I am the master of cheddar cheese fondue.

Easy Cheese Fondue Recipes
You guys know me, rather than spend that kind of money, I set off to find a way I could make some amazingly easy cheese fondue at home. This recipe is so simple that even the most beginner cook can have an amazingly tasty fondue.
1 cup Swiss Cheese
1 cup cheddar cheese
1 Tbsp flour
1 tsp dry mustard
1 tsp garlic powder
fresh cracked pepper (to taste)
1/2 -3/4 cup beer
French bread or Italian bread
Cut a loaf of French bread across in normal slices. Then cut these slices into 1 inch strips. Cut the strips in thirds to have cubes of bread.
Grate 1 cup of cheddar cheese and 1 cup of swiss cheese is a medium bowl.
Put 1 Tbsp of flour in bowl with cheese and toss cheese to coat it in the flour
Heat up your double boiler, fondue pot, large pot with water and bring water to gentle boil
Place top part of fondue pot over water, and place 1/2 cup beer in pot
Add dry mustard, garlic powder, and pepper to beer
Once beer is almost warm, add cheese about 1 tbsp at a time constantly stirring with fork until melted.
Keep stirring until the cheese has a runny consistency, it should not be clumpy. If it is clumpy try adding a little bit more beer, just a little at a time until you achieve the desired consistency. If it is too runny add more cheese or a little more flour.
Don’t be afraid to play around with the mustard, garlic, and pepper. I usually just season to taste. You can always add more when you are melting the cheese. The beer adds such a great flavor to the fondue. I could eat a whole pot myself!
