Question Favourite fondue?

The holiday season always seems to make me crave a big pot of fondue, which got me thinking, what is everyone favourite type of fondue? What sorts of yummy things do you like to dip into them?

One of the best fondue recipe I've ever made was with melted Toblerone chocolate bars, it was quiter literally mouth wateringly good! (And so addicitve!)

It really is, I think that fondue parties need to make a much bigger come back! Especially with all the really cool fondue pots and accessories that are on the market these days. I used to work in a kitchenware store and we sold a ton of fondue pots, everything from the cheap (but they still worked well for chocolate) $9 ones right up to the $130 raclettes

I love traditional swiss style cheese fondue with our homemade bread!! we also dip steamed broccolis and brussel sprouts too, we bought a fondue/raclette gear from Lidl at 15€ last year this is fastly becoming our favourite winter tradition

Btw we also have a cioccole, chocolate fondue maker... but we use it more often to make little stuffed chocolate candies, last year we pumped out so many of them, made great christmas gifts!!

another cheese fan here, with chocolate as a close second. try dipping chunks of soft pretzels in either, or better yet, both.

i bought a cast iron fondue set a few years back; maybe it's time to break it out and use it for the first time. anyone have a good cheesey suggestion? do you add a combo of cheeses or a singular type, and do you add anything to make it more or less viscous?
