      You're right - this is out of this world! Made this for our "Family Night" last week. My kids love it when I get out the fondue pot - I'll be making this again! I served it with grilled chicken strips, bread, pretzels, steamed muchrooms and blanched broccoli and cauliflower. Made for Aussie/NZ Recipe Swap July 2008.
