Easy Fondue Recipes

Fondue is fun to eat, but it’s also really tasty too. People love fondue because when paired with the right recipe it’s delicious and easy to do.

Foods to Pair with Oil

The idea behind an oil fondue pot is being able to cook different things in the hot oil. Some of the best things to cook in the oil include raw meats and vegetables. After a few minutes in the oil, a piece of broccoli can be soft and buttery, and a piece of shrimp can be warm and savory.

Foods to Pair with Cheese

The traditional food to pair with cheese fondue was small chunks of bread. However, whatever you want to dip in a big bowl of deliciously warm and melted cheese is a good idea. People dip breads and vegetables into a pot of cheese fondue.

Foods to Pair with Chocolate

Similar to cheese, anything you can imagine can be dipped into chocolate. Everything from strawberries, pineapple, marshmallows, pretzels, angel food cake, and anything else that goes well with chocolate. The options are really endless when it comes to chocolate fondue.
