Remember how we gave each other the gift of memories and moments during Christmas 2018? The November envelope was a fondue party labeled Fondue Fun!

It wasn't fancy, but it sure was fun! We had angel food cake, chocolate, grapes, strawberries, bananas, and marshmallows.

We made a cheese fondue that was honestly a bit of a flop. If anyone can give me tips on how to make it runny instead of stringy that would be fantastic. HA HA HA We used deer sticks, granny smith apples, celery, bread and pretzel bites for our cheese fondue!

It was like one giant piece of string cheese!

We used a lot of things we already had like a little crockpot and a chocolate melting pot that I have previously used to melt candy melts for cake pops. I did purchase these, just so we could feel fancy. You can see just how fancy we were based on the Hawkeye mug that served as the storage for the forks.

I encourage each of you to consider giving the gift of time to your family. I know I will always cherish these envelopes and the fun that they brought us each month and who knows maybe we will give cheese fondue another try sometime.

Do you have a favorite fondue recipe or memory?
