Cheddar Cheese Fondue

kid friendly fondue recipe

Adapted from The Melting Pot, this cheddar cheese fondue recipe is a family-friendly fondue dip without the alcohol or strong flavours that makes cheese fondue not often a first (or second) choice for a family meal, no matter the occasion.

Since bread and cheese are toddler staples, the fun of a fondue is worth dusting off that old set you inherited. And there’s always the thought of chocolate fondue for dessert. YUM.

Cheddar Cheese Fondue Recipe

You’ll Need

  • 4 cups cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 2 Tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups skim milk
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 ½ tsp dry mustard powder
  • 1 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce

Prep and Cook

  • In a medium mixing bowl, stir together the cheese and flour and set aside.
