A nice mild cheese for those not into getting into the unknown (stronger) cheeses that you may find in fondue. A nice blend of cheese that you can dip bread, potatoes or veggies into.

Fondue isn't just for special occasions (and not just made of chocolate). This recipe is so easy, you will be looking for reasons to make it. The cheese combination is smooth and almost sweet. They're mild and not too salty. There is a slight tang from the Colby. It's so versatile you can dip anything from cured meats to apple slices and anything in between. The Test Kitchen
