Junk Food Fondue

  • SERVES: 4
  • PREP: 10 minutes
  • TOTAL TIME: 20 minutes

Chill out and dip a skewer of tater tots into molten cheese.

Cheese is great—one of life’s most perfect foods. Tater tots are also pretty great. And pigs in a blanket. With their powers combined, I give you...junk food fondue! Satisfy all of your cravings at once with a pot of molten cheese, a combination of Gruyère, fontina, and sharp cheddar. Our donabe-style claypot is the ideal vessel to keep things warm and melty if you don’t own an actual fondue pot. Just put it in the center of the coffee table, sprawl out on the couch—preferably in a Tie-Dye For Robe—and just chillll. Pro tip: Shred all of your cheese by hand! I know it's tempting to buy pre-shredded, but it has anti-caking agents that prevents you from getting a nice, smooth, melty fondue.
