Thick, rich and wonderful! I used a medium brie, so mine was very thick, which is fine with me. I must say that out of all the dippers I tried, my favorite for this fondue was apple chunks. You must try apple chunks with this! Thanx for posting.

Please read all of the review. This was made with apple juice, not wine. I thought this would be harder than it turned out to be. Thanks, <br/>So for valentines day coming up, I wanted to make my mother a nice fondue. She has been a widow for coming up to 3 years and I always try to make certain holidays special including Valentines day, Mothers day, Fathers day, etc. Her favorite cheese is Brie and I knew I wanted it to be a main ingredient. With my favorite fondue place booked for the 14th and 15th, I wanted to duplicate my favorite fondue that is offered. It is called Brie and Gorgonzola fondue with roasted hazelnuts on top. So last night I wanted to do a trial run and my mother was working late (until about 10 pm) I got off at 5 pm which worked great, went to New seasons to get some Brie (tasted it before, super creamy, really good), as well as Gorgonzola. Now, had I known what Gorgonzola was, I most certainly would not have even tried it at the fondue restaurant, but I am glad I did. I went home followed all the steps in this recipe for a 4 person serving. Didn't have corn starch so used flour (turned out so good no one would have even known). Melted my cheeses. Used apple juice instead of wine which numerous people advised me not to do. I used 8 oz Brie and about 3 oz Gorgonzola. Oven baked bread sliced granny smith apples had dried apricots steamed broccoli and asparagus. This is going to blow my mothers mind. I hope valentines day goes as planned. Shes my rock, and I want to show her how much I appreciate her. I will update how valentines goes. This is important to me. And to anyone reading, and thinks fondue is impossible, your not alone. I thought it would not turn out. But I am proud of myself. I did alter this recipe a little because I added the Gorgonzola but this was the start I needed. Thanks @Nif

We do fondue every New Years Eve. I made this last year and LOVED it. I was planning on it this year but my brie ended up being bad so I found another recipe with cheddar. This was truly missed and I wont go another year without this recipe!!!

We loved this.. I served it with baguette, green apple slices, olive oil and pepper triscuts, and croissant. I did need to add extra wine after putting it in the fondue pot. Very simple ingredients, and tasted great!

Nif, this is a winner. I didn't have fresh nutmeg, so I used 1/4 tsp. ground. This was perfect with chilled chablis, on a spring evening. Thanks!

A keeper! I served with french bread. It was creamy and rich; I will definitely be making again.
