Electric fondue pot - leave it out during a party?
I received an electric fondue pot as a gift and I'd really like to use it! I'm throwing a baby shower soon and a New Year's party - but they're both mill-around, snack on the buffet-type events rather than anything sitdown with scheduled eating time. Is there anyway I can make up a fondue or other cheesy-melt dip in advance and then leave it out without worrying too much about it, or is this a recipe for disaster?
Also interested in a good blue cheese fondue recipe if anyone has it.
