J. and I love eating at the Melting Pot (a fondue chain restaurant near us). Here's a cheap way to bring fondue home. This recipe made a large pot of fondue and would have been a good meal for about four people. You could serve this with a variety of pizza toppings, we served it as an appetizer and just used bread for dipping.

This recipe comes from Fat Girl Trapped in a Skinny Body.
-1 tsp olive oil
-2 garlic cloves
-1 jar (24 ounces) marinara sauce
-3 cups mozzarella
-1 cup cheddar
-1 cup parmesan
-1 tbsp cornstarch
-1/4 cup white wine
-2 tbsp chopped fresh basil
In a medium-large sized pot saute the garlic and olive oil over medium heat for about 30 seconds.
Add the white wine and marinara sauce, bring to a boil (watch carefully though because it will start to really bubble, mine made a little bit of a mess), then reduce the heat to medium.
In a large bowl mix the cheese and cornstarch (this will help the cheese melt better). Slowly add the cheese to the marinara mix, stirring each time until melted. Add the fresh basil if desired.
If you have a fondue pot you can then pour it into the fondue pot, we served it right in the pot I used to make the fondue in.
This made so much fondue! If you're serving it just as an appetizer and you're not serving a lot of people, I recommend cutting the recipe in half. I think if the recipe would have been cut in half we probably would have finished all of it. We had probably about a cup leftover, which I ate for a few days as a snack so it will keep well, when you reheat it just make sure to stir it well.
