Looking for an easy Swiss Fondue recipe to make in your crockpot?

(This post may contain affiliate links. Please read my disclosures for more information.)

We love to visit the Melting Pot and order the full fondue, the meats you cook in broth, the vegetables and bread cubes dipped in the cheese fondue, and then all the yummy fruit and cake to dip in the chocolate. Unfortunately, the high cost (it’s always around $100 for the two of us) prevents us from going very often, and especially from taking all of our kids.

No worries, though! Fondue is easy and SO much cheaper to make at home! And it’s fun! Instead of doing the meats like the Melting Pot does, where each guest cooks his own meats in the shared pot of broth, I pre-cook all of the meats. I just don’t want my little people messing around with raw meat, ha, ha. 

I pre-cook a tray of bite-sized meat chunks and serve the meats with the veggies and bread cubes dipped in the cheese fondue. Afterward, we all enjoy chocolate fondue together. My kids love fondue night!

Swiss Fondue Ingredients:

  • 1 T. butter
  • 2 Cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 c.  flour
  • 2  c. chicken broth
  • 8 oz. swiss cheese, shredded
  • 8 oz. Gruyère cheese, shredded
  • 4 oz. sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1 T. Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 t. dry mustard powder
  • 1/2 t. freshly ground black pepper



Swiss Fondue Instructions:

1. Heat chicken broth in the crockpot on high.

2. Sautee garlic in butter until tender.

3. Mix all of the shredded cheeses with the flour, as if trying to coat each cheese piece with flour.

4. Once the broth is hot, add the Worcestershire sauce, the mustard powder, the pepper and the butter/garlic mixture.

5. Stir in the flour-coated cheeses until melted and the right consistency.

6. Turn the heat down to low and serve.




Serve with chunks of different bread varieties, sliced granny smith apples, carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, grapes, crackers, or whatever you have on hand that strikes your fancy. Try various cheese combinations, too.







And be sure to enjoy some easy crockpot chocolate fondue afterward!

I always dish the fondue sauces up onto plates for my littles, so we don’t have any double-dipping going on. It also contains the mess better.

Yum! I hope you enjoy your delicious fondue with your family.
