Recipe Summary

Ten minutes is all it takes to whip up this creamy, not-tao-rich fondue. Serve it in a fondue pot and let guests dip the traditional long forks with chunks of French bread, crusts removed. The longer this mixture simmers in the pot, the more it creates the classic "croustade" layer at the bottom-some people vie for a spoonful of this golden prize. If you actually have leftovers, use the fondue as a soft spread on buttery crackers or pita bread for a quick and flavorful snack.
