Melting Pot Cheddar Cheese Fondue Recipe

It’s time to break out that fondue pot that has been sitting in your cupboard. You can try the CopyKat version of The Melting Pot’s Cheddar Cheese Fondue. The Melting Pot is a favorite place to enjoy dinner—a dark room, a nice bottle of wine, melted cheese, and hopefully, you are with someone special. If you have never been to The Melting Pot, imagine a three-course meal with fondue for each course! Imagine cheese basking over your favorite bread, crisp green apples, and more.

What makes this Cheddar cheese fondue so memorable? Sometimes enjoying dinner is especially fun when you get to use your hands. You must eat this dish in one sitting as it doesn’t reheat well, nor does it do well if you make it in advance to eat later. So this is the fun type of dish you want to make on the spot. If you are new to fondue it is the ultimate cheese dip, it’s gooey, and goes well with French bread, a Baguette, or even some French bread.

Cheddar Cheese Fondue is the Best Tasting Fondue!

This Melting Pot Cheddar cheese fondue is made with medium-aged cheddar and Emmentaler Swiss cheeses, lager beer, and garlic. You can serve it with lots of bread; I recommend pumpernickel, wheat, or sourdough. I also love this with green apples. You can be creative with this dish, so serve it with bread or vegetables that you enjoy.

If you do not wish to make this with beer, I cannot give you a suggestion for the beer other than a product like O’Doul’s or a near-beer with less than 3.2 percent alcohol. The beer flavor adds a lot to this dish. Please do not serve this dish to people who do not drink alcohol. Alcohol doesn’t fully cookout of the food.

  • 2 ounces Emmentaler Swiss cheese

Preparing the cheese

  • Prepare the cheese by grating the cheese, slice it into small cubes. You will coat the cheese with flour, or cornstarch.

Preparing the Fondue

  • Place beer, garlic, dry mustard, and Worcestershire in the pot and combine well. Shred or cube the cheeses and toss with flour, coating the cheese well. (The flour will help thicken the sauce.)

    It was good. I made it according to recipe and dipped French bread and tart apples. My husband thought it could use some more flavor, so next time I think I may substitute a red wine for the beer. Thanks for the recipe!

    I gave this recipe 4 stars: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

    We doubled the recipe for our 3 qt Oster fondue pot which was just right! I also subbed the beer for veggie & chicken broth (50/50) because we were feeding a bunch of kids & we don’t really like the flavor of beer. I would definitely reduce the mustard powder next time as my only change because it was VERY strong & was almost overpowering. I will definitely make again as it came together super easy & was smooth and creamy.

    FYI for the recipe owner, you need to redo your video as it’s missing ingredients & you didn’t follow your own directions, lol.

    I just thought I would point out that Melting Pot has released a cook book of their recipes, which is available just about anywhere (amazon,, Barnes and Noble). JS
