I think fondue is our new NYE tradition.
Here are the recipes we used this year. They're all amazing!

  • 2 bay leaves
  • 4-5 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 teaspoons dried parsley
  • 2 teaspoons fresh ground pepper
  • 3 cups beef broth
  • 3 cups water
  • 1 (1 ounce) package French onion soup mix

  • Mix all ingredients in a fondue pot or on the stove. Simmer for one hour. Bring to a boil when ready to serve.


    • 1/2 tablespoon olive oil
    • 3 oz. cream cheese, softened
    • ¾ cup heavy whipping cream
    • ¾ cup parmesan cheese ( I used romano)
    • 1 1/3 cup grated gruyere cheese (or swiss cheese)
    • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
    • ¼ teaspoon nutmeg
    • ½ teaspoon salt

    In a fondue pot or double broiler over medium heat, gradually add the olive oil, cream cheese, cream, parmesan and gruyere cheese until the mixture is smooth and the cheese has melted.

    Add the garlic powder, nutmeg and salt. Mix well.

    *If the mixture is too thick, add more cream, if it’s too runny, add more cheese.


    Half of this recipe is plenty!
    • 32 ounces chocolate, grated ( I used 2/3 semi-sweet and 1/3 milk, both Guittard)
    • 1 1/4 cups heavy cream
    • 1 tablespoon instant coffee powder (I used Pero)
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (preferably Mexican vanilla)
    • 1 teaspoon white sugar
    • 1/3 cup hot water

    In a double boiler melt the chocolate with the heavy cream. Mix in the instant coffee, vanilla extract, sugar, and hot water. Continue to heat, stirring frequently, until the mixture is smooth.

    1. It's like a reincarnated version from when the Dearden side did it at grandma hibbys all growing up. It stopped once Hibby moved, I think.
