If you’ve ever had cheese fondue, you know how delicious it is. The first time I had it, I swear it was completely life-changing.
I’m a huge fan of cheese in general, but there’s nothing better than melted cheese, especially when you can dip anything you want into it.
When it comes to making fondue, there are two camps of people: people who think that much deliciousness must be impossible to make, and people who think all you have to do is microwave some cheese.
The actual answer is somewhere in between — fondue definitely isn’t just melted cheese, but it is actually really easy to make. For this incredible recipe, you only need a few simple ingredients!
