My husband's office manager gave me this recipe. A neat party idea.

You are right, Nurse Di. This was a great party appetizer. I had a few friends over to play cards and I served this along with some other nibbles. This was the most popular. Melted to a wonderful creamy texture. I used dry sherry because I don't know what kirsch is. I served the fondue with homemade french bread chunks. Umm-umm-good. Thanks.
