This cheddar cheese fondue recipe is kid-friendly cheese dip that can be used as an appetizer or as a fun dinner! Serve with cubed bread, fruit and veggies.
For the first week, the menu item that I made was the appetizer. I decided to make Cheese Fondue that can be served with fresh veggies, apple slices and crusty cubes of bread.

How To Make Cheddar Cheese Fondue
To make the cheese fondue, you need shredded cheddar cheese, shredded Monterey Jack cheese, sparkling apple cider, garlic, Worcestershire sauce, and black pepper.
Use fresh veggies like cauliflower, carrots, and broccoli along with apples and crusty bread for dipping.
Heat the sparkling apple juice (can also use whole milk or apple juice) and chopped garlic in a saucepan. SLOWLY add the shredded cheddar cheese and Monterey Jack cheese about 1/2 cup at a time, whisking with a fork until smooth.
Blend in black pepper and Worcestershire sauce. Serve immediately.
Cut the veggies into bite-sized pieces, the bread into cubes and the apples into thin slices. Put all of the dippers into bowls.
Take a small bowl and place it in the center of a large plate. Fill the bowl with the cheese fondue and fill the plate with the veggies, apples, and bread. This cheese fondue is so delicious and very kid friendly! After I made the fondue and took my pictures, my sister’s kids called to see if my kids wanted to go to their house to play and have pizza for dinner.
They live within walking distance and before my kids headed out the door, I put the leftover cheese fondue and the cubed bread into a bag for them to take along. A few days later, both my sister and my brother-in-law told me how good the cheese fondue was. My sister said that she warmed up half of the fondue at first and it quickly disappeared.
So, she told the kids not to worry, there was plenty more and warmed up the second half which they also ate! If you do plan to reheat the cheese fondue, I want you to know the cheese does not melt as smoothly when reheating. My sister and all of the kids didn’t mind a bit and said that it was delicious.

I love fondue and this cheese recipe sounds tasty! I think my kids would have so much fun doing a fondue party with yummy recipes like this!
Oh, you should do it! They would have a blast! My teen had a fondue party for her birthday with several kinds of fondue and it was a huge hit!
The fondue looks awesome and I’m loving the pattern on those cups!
Debra Peterson says
I love this new Cherish pattern. I’ve had the Ivy pattern for years, until I gave it to a family that lost everything in a home fire. It’s still being used today!

This fondue looks incredible Tonia! I have a set of Corelle that I LOVE but I think the Vive Ribbons and Swirls would be awesome to have too!
I love corelle. I have been adding to my white collection for awhile. Your cheese fondue looks fabulous. I am a sucker for anything cheezy:)
I own the pure white collection. It works well with all table settings, pick your color table runner, napkins, rings and go.
I love the garden sketch pattern.

I love the Cherish pattern. I have Corellle from 1979.,with brown, orange and yellow flowers on it. Yikes.

Both sets of dinner wear are beautiful,but I prefer the “Cherish” set best.
We got a phone call from my eldest granddaughter last night letting us know that she will be getting Married .
Right now they are in Denver,Co. & will be coming to Tulsa,Ok.so that I will be able to see them when they get Married
as I am unable to travel.
I have to have my daughter make the fondue for Christmas Dinner.
We all like cheese a lot in this family.

I liked the CORELLE® Square™ Pure White 16-pc Dinnerware Set.
I actually have the Memphis set, so I’d have to say that is my favorite. I love all the fun colors.

Love the splendor pattern! Thanks for the giveaway!
Thank you for the nice recipe. I love fondues, but haven’t had one for a long time.

I always wanted a set of corelle dishes! I never did get some. I have lovely china, but it is not the same….
The new “Cherish” series is just perfect! Timeless and yet modern. I think they will match my existing chine just fine!!!
They are all nice, but I think I prefer “Winter Frosted White”. I love Corelle and many years ago received a set which I really enjoyed.

My favorite patter is…Bamboo Leaf
Carrie Davis says
I had the iris pattern of Corelle,sadly it was ‘misplaced’ by my husband on our last move. Would love to win a replacement set. Mine was a gift from my parents to celebrate my first home purchase, so the sentimental value was huge…

I’m partial to the Corelle Cherish pattern as that is what my name means!
