Stop the World and Melt With These Easy Cheesy Fondue Recipes

Sweet dreams are made of cheese, and one of our favorite ways to indulge is ooey-gooey fondue. Any excuse to dip anything and everything into a vat of melted cheese is Gouda in our book, and even though it seems like a fancy French thing to do, it's so easy you won't Brielieve it. (Last one, we promise!)

Whether you're throwing a fall bash or  Monster Mash, or just looking to crash after work with cheese and wine, there's a perfect fondue for you. Check out four of our favorite fondue recipes below — ranging from Italian-accented Fontina to chorizo-spiked queso — and get  more cheesy recipes here.

Homemade rosemary potato chips are delicious on their own, but when you dip them in blue cheese fondue, it takes them to the next level. Warning: These may start a serious addiction.

This gussied-up fondue pairs the finer things in life: melted Brie and champagne. A cubed baguette is great for dipping, but you could also try assorted meats, vegetables or even fruit with this one.

The Mexican version of fondue combines beer, chorizo and Monterey Jack cheese. Tortilla chips are a natural dipping vehicle for this spicy concoction, but it would taste good on absolutely anything — even a shoe.

Leave it to Giada De Laurentiis to provide a tried-and-true fondue recipe. She combines Fontina and Gruyère cheeses for a smooth, nutty version that pairs perfectly with foccacia bread, sliced salami, fresh fennel, Belgian endive, steamed broccoli florets and asparagus spears. That spread makes for a very balanced meal.
