Making fondue on Valentine’s Day has been one of our favorite family traditions for the past 5+ years.  But this delicious and easy cheese fondue is great any day of the year!  It comes together in minutes and is kid-friendly, containing no alcohol.

I love serving this cheese fondue with roasted veggies, chunks of bread, green apples, crackers, and any other pantry items that look like they’d go well with a cheese dip.

This recipe is SO easy with an electric fondue pot.  It makes it a one-pot recipe.  You don’t have to deal with any heating candles, the temperature can be adjusted, and it’s dishwasher-safe.  Grab my favorite model here.  If you don’t have a fondue pot, you can also heat the ingredients on the stove and transfer to a slow cooker to eat.

We always pair this cheese fondue with our chocolate fondue, so make sure to check out that recipe as well!

Family-Friendly Cheese Fondue

Pin Recipe


  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • 1 garlic clove crushed
  • 1/2 lb swiss cheese shredded
  • 1 lb gruyere cheese shredded
  • 1 Tbs cornstarch
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • dash paprika and nutmeg


  • Combine ingredients in a fondue pot or pot on the stove.
  • Heat over medium-low and stir continually until smooth.
  • Enjoy immediately with bread, veggies, crackers, and any other desired dippers.


Don't buy pre-shredded cheese as it won't melt as smoothly as block cheese that you grate yourself.

    Can I do a double batch in the same pot? Mine looks about the same size as yours.
