Fondue Theme Dinner

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 below.

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!

Chocolate Fondue

by Lisa (Canada)
You need one soup can, tealight and small foil tart tin per person. The adult takes the tin can and using a bottle opener opens 3 holes around the top and the bottom of the tin. Start the tealight, then place in tin can.
Put the tart tin in the top. Add mini chocolate chips. Let the chips melt. Then use the skewer to dip strawberries, angel food cake or grapes. I make the angel food cake before I leave for camp. You can also use pound cake.
