Apart from being gorgeous… It is sooo delicious and very easy to prepare. Fondue has always been one of my favorite things in the world, and this one inside a pumpkin is EPIC! It’s cheesy… obviously lol. It is perfect for fall season! I made this for thanksgiving as an appetizer and everyone in my family was OBSESSED, so I am sure you will be too!

How To Prepare Pumpkin Cheese Fondue

🎃 First, cut the top off the pumpkin and hollow out the pumpkin.

🔥 Secondly, bake at 400F for about 20 minutes.

🧀 Add your fondue package to a pot and melt. Then, add in gruyere and whisk together until fully melted and gooey. It will be about 5 ish minutes.

🍞 Lastly, serve the cheese inside the pumpkin. Then, top with chives and serve with the crusty bread.

Substitutions and Variations

  1. I added gruyere to the box mixture, because i just love it but you can leave it as is.
  2. I topped mine with chives, but you can leave those out or swap for your favorite herbs or toppings!

Chef Nadia’s Tip

Keep the pumpkin in the oven right until serving so it keeps the cheese gooey. Also, you can always reheat the fondue by throwing the whole pumpkin into the oven with the pumpkin lid on.
