I managed to get my hands on some emmentaler and used it instead of the regular swiss. I followed the rest of the recipe exactly. Wow! It was scrumptious! I had never made a cheese fondue before, but recently vacationed in France and fell in love with it. This recipe came out creamy and smooth. Absolutely wonderful!

- 1 cup apple juice or 1 cup dry white wine
