Cheddar Beer Fondue. The Perfect Stay-At-Home Date!

Last weekend was our first weekend in our apartment and I wanted to do something special to celebrate! 
I decided to try a new fondue recipe for dinner. 
It was just like being at the melting pot but better!
Our first stay at home date was a success. I can't wait to do it again.
Now for the recipe...
The cheese fondue I decided to make was a beer cheddar fondue. The beer really adds a great flavor.

Fondue Recipe
  • 1 1/2 cups beer (1 can)
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 8 oz (1 package) of shredded mild cheddar cheese
  • 8 oz (1 package) of shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 2 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1 tsp dijon mustard
  • In a pot on the stove, combine the beer and garlic on medium heat until bubbles appear. 
  • Toss cheese with the cornstarch until evenly coated.
  • Add cheese a handful at a time to the pot, stirring until evenly combined
  • Stir in mustard.
  • Once ready to serve, pour cheese into fondue pot or other serving dish.
This is the fun part! Choose whatever dippers you like!
I chose potatoes, broccoli, cauliflower, apple, celery, sausage, bread, and pretzels!
The sausage and granny smith apples were my favorite dippers for this fondue. 

I also wanted something special for dessert!
Usually at the melting pot, we indulge in chocolate fondue for dessert.
I couldn't make another fondue because I only have one fondue pot...
I decided to make chocolate covered strawberries instead. They were yummo!
 It was almost like having chocolate fondue but less messy, and just as delish!!

Making chocolate covered strawberries is simple as can be!
 Take your favorite melting chocolate and melt in the microwave for 30 seconds at a time, stirring in between. Once the chocolate is melted, dip you strawberries in the chocolate and let harden in the fridge.
