Easy Date Night Cheese Fondue for Two 

This Valentine’s day instead of fighting the crowds out on the town, celebrate at home! This is a terrific alternative for you and your loved one, especially if you enjoy being at home OR you have small kids but no babysitter.

I’m a big fan of cheese fondue. When we visit The Melting Pot we always go for all three courses – cheese, meat, & dessert! But truth be told I’d be happy to just make a meal of the cheese fondue and then move on to the dessert.

I’m sharing a classic cheese fondue recipe below. Serve it as your main meal for date night, or as an appetizer for a party.

Date Night Ideas at Home

  • Set up a low table in the living room in front of the fireplace.
  • Use pillows and plush throws to sit on. It’s cozy and romantic!
  • And once you’ve finished the main course, how about a fondue dessert platter!
  • Watch one of our favorite romance movies for date night in.

The nice thing about this cheese fondue is that it can be used to dip all food groups: bread, cured meats, vegetables, and fruit. So it’s a complete meal in one.

And remember, the tradition is if someone drops an item into the pot of fondue you have to give them a kiss!
