I think I have had this recipe for over 20 years and never got around to making it until last year. The reason why is because I did not have a fondue pot or fondue forks. Last Christmas I was looking for a dip to try as I was quite bored with all of the standard dips and appetizers that I go to year in and year out. This was really good. I bought some fresh apples and pears and cut them in wedges and dipped them in this cheesy, creamy fondue. I'll probably make it again this year.
