Fondue Party in the Instant Pot

    I can clearly remember my first fondue party. My mother was quite the hostess, especially around the holidays. My parents must have been entertaining someone, and she got out several fondue pots, and some sternos, and all those adorable little forks, and she set up an awesome smorgasbord of pots and stuff to dip in them.  Meats, and cheeses, and breads – and I felt all grown up and sophisticated participating in something so FRENCH. (It is actually Swiss!)

    Many years later, when we were grown up and our huge family Christmas Eve party was no more, a few of us had fondue on a Christmas Eve and we really liked it…something different on a night that needs to be celebrated. It was slow food at its very best.

    Now, the Instant Pot makes sterno and fussy little pots a thing of the past. By heating the dips in the IP, and using the sauté function to both create and then keep them warm, you can have a sweet little fondue party with very little effort or stress.

    One Pro Tip: use good chocolate and very good cheese. You get what you pay for with these kind of dips, and you will be glad for the extra good quality. You CAN taste the difference!

    Instructions
    Chocolate Fondue:
    1. Chocolate Fondue: put milk into liner of Instant Pot and turn on sauté, normal setting. When the milk is hot, stir in the chocolate chips and stir until smooth. Add the flavorings and stir well. You can turn the pot off and the mixture will thicken slightly as it cools. Turn it back on again to rewarm the chocolate. Serve with marshmallows, strawberries, cookie sticks, etc.
    Cheesy Fondue
    1. Grate all the cheeses into a bowl and the mix with the cornstarch, coating the cheese well. Place the wine, garlic and lemon juice in the liner of the Instant Pot and turn on sauté, normal setting. When hot, add the cheese mixture and let melt all cheeses. Stir in the mustard and nutmeg, blending well. Serve with cubes of French bread, lightly steamed vegetables, hot chunks of sausage, or pieces of roasted potatoes.
