Skillet Snowman Cheese Dip


Fondue transforms to "fundue" with this dressed-for-winter skillet cheese dip recipe.

Total Time:
30 mins
3 cups


  • 1 pound white cheese, such as Gouda, white cheddar, Swiss, and/or Monterey Jack, shredded (4 cups)

  • 2 tablespoon all-purpose flour

  • ¼ teaspoon garlic salt

  • 1 teaspoon butter

  • 1 small onion, finely chopped (1/2 cup)

  • 1 cup dry white wine or reduced-sodium chicken broth

  • 8 pitted black olives

  • 1 baby carrot

  • Assorted dippers such as bread cubes, crackers, and veggies


  1. In a large bowl combine cheese, flour, and garlic salt, tossing gently. Set aside.

  2. In an 8- to 10-inch oven-going skillet melt butter over medium heat. Add onion and cook until softened, about 3 to 4 minutes. Carefully add the wine and bring to a simmer. Gradually add cheese mixture, stirring until smooth after each addition, making sure the cheese is completely melted before adding more. Serve immediately or keep warm in a 200°F. oven until ready to serve. Stir and top with olives and a carrot to create a snowman face.
