The Best Game Day Cheese Fondue Dippers

Big celebrations call for great food that’s fit to sit out for 3 hours and feed a crowd. Fondue is the perfect solution. This historically “fancy” appetizer is really just a bowl of melted cheese, so bubble some up and serve it through the whole game!

Cheese Fondue

Fondue can come in a lot of different ways, from homemade to convenient ready-to-serve options, like Emmi Fondu. All you need is a nutty, alpine-style cheese like Gruyère and soft melty cheeses like Swiss Emmentaler and Appenzeller, cornstarch or flour, cloves, white wine and lemon juice. Traditional Swiss fondue is also made with, kirsch, a clear, colorless fruit brandy. Trust us, you’re going to want to use this!
