Cook’s Tips:

To prepare fondue in microwave oven, combine ingredients in Mini-Baking Bowl as directed. Microwave on HIGH 2 minutes. Stir; continue microwaving 2 to 3 minutes, stirring every minute, until cheese is melted and smooth. If fondue cools while serving, return to microwave oven and microwave on HIGH 1-2 minutes, stirring every minute until it is heated.

In addition to using rye bread cubes for dipping, try sourdough or French bread cubes, sort breadsticks, apple or pear wedges, chicken, turkey or ham chunks, pepper strips, or partially cooked vegetables such as small red potatoes, cut in half, broccoli or cauliflower florets.

The Mini-Baking Bowl keeps the fondue warm while serving.
