I'm looking for suggestions for favorite and/or unusual dippers for fondues (cheese and chocolate). TIA

  1. angel food cake, pound cake is amazing for chocolate. I always found apples to be a strange cheese fondue dip.

    1. For cheese fondue: Brussels sprouts, tiny potatoes, parsnip chunks. These have all been pre-cooked, of course.

      1. For cheese I really like bread, maybe a pumpernickel, pretzel or beer bread would be good. I also think the apple suggestion sounds interesting. I like angel food cake and pineapple with chocolate fondue, and I know marshmallows are another popular choice.

        1. For cheese, my favorite dippers are good crusty breads and green apples. I served sausage once to try it out, though I don't know if I'd serve it again. For chocolate, my absolute favorite is pound cake. I could skip all the other usual options and be very happy.

          1. Chocolate:
            Nilla Wafers
            Large Stick Pretzels
            Crispy Cooked Bacon Strips
            Strawberries
            Jelly candies

            Cheese:
            Pretzels
            Tortilla Chips
            Toast Points (Welsh Rarebit)
            Crispy Cooked Bacon Strips
            New or Fingerling Potatoes (cooked)
            Skewers of Beef, Ham, perhaps Chicken cubes
            Small cooked Onions - onna stick of course
