This recipe hails from my Fondue cookbook (Better Homes and Gardens) copy right, no date given but think it must have been published around 1972.
I have made this recipe a few times and everyone quests and family have loved it. It is one of those old tried and true recipes. Really easy to make and quite a show stopper. Enjoy!
