*Disclaimer - This recipe was originally published in 2014. I'm working hard to update all my older recipes with recipe cards, new photos, and additional recipe information. But, getting to all of them will take time. Please bear with me. In the meantime let me assure you that this recipe is still a winner and one I'm sure you'll be well pleased with when you make it at home.
Perfect for use with all kinds of dippers. Swiss Cheese Fondue is as warm as a comforting hug on a cold winter's night.
Giving comfort to those in need is a wonderful thing and should not be holiday exclusive. It should be something we all think about and do on a regular basis.
However, as we all know, life gets busy, and we tend sometimes to forget that there are others in this world who need help from time to time.
Whether it's a warm meal, a comforting hug, or a hand up to those who are down on their luck.
