This festive fondue Christmas dinner tradition is a fun one to do with kids! It’s simple and special!
We started this fun tradition dinner with our kids this past Valentine’s Day and everyone in my family thought it was such a delightful evening! My kids and Tyler thought it was so special and unique, so I decided to bring it to the Christmas season and make it a fondue Christmas dinner tradition for our family, too!
what you’ll need for your Fondue Christmas dinner tradition
If you know me at all at this point, you know that I love a good aesthetic. I like everything in my home to be matching, and there’s a good reason for this. If you choose neutral colors that you love, you end up saving a lot of money over time because you don’t get sick of the colors since you can easily change the feel of a gathering by adding in less expensive items with color like the foods that you choose, the tablecloths you add in and the ribbon you tie. I choose these fondue pots because not only are they beautiful, but they are high quality and will last a long time.
Once you have your fondue pot, you can make a cheese fondue recipe. Try this one! I liked that it doesn’t have alcohol. I don’t drink alcohol so I don’t have it on hand ever and most recipes include wine or beer. I want something as simple as possible! I bought two fondue pots, so I have one for a cheese fondue and one for a chocolate fondue.
For the chocolate fondue, I just melted down our favorite chocolate in the microwave by heating for 10 seconds, stirring, and then heating again on repeat until it melted. We like Ghuittard chocolate chips which you can find at almost any grocery store.
For the items that you’re going to dip for this fondue Christmas dinner tradition, buy anything you think your family will like! For the cheese fondue, think vegetables, breads and meats. I got our favorite sausage and sliced it up, then dipped that. Yum! For the chocolate fondue, think anything you’d like to have a with chocolate! We like to do fruit (strawberries are our favorite), graham crackers and cake.
I hope you have a blast with your new fondue Christmas dinner tradition!
