A fondue theme dinner party is easy to put together and something
that will provide fun for all ages. Fondue comes from the French
language meaning "to melt." Fondue can be made in a special fondue
pot but can also be created in a crock pot, microwave or saucepan.
If using the microwave or saucepan place pan or microwave bowl on a
electric hot plate. Set on low and stir often.

Use your Fondue pot as your centerpiece. Include sticks for your
food and have each family member or guest pick out a dipper to
bring to the party. Ideas could be bread cubes, ham chunks,
chicken cubes, fresh vegetables or one of the dessert dippers
Try using a muffin tin to serve fondue. It
is a perfect size for kids to add a little fondue in a hole and
different dippers in each hole. This works great when you have
more than one kid dipping in the fondue pot. This way they have
their own cup to dip in and no worries about double dipping!
