Carter is back in school, a big 1st grader now, and I wanted to surprise him with a special lunch. So instead of his usual peanut butter and jelly, today he gets a fondue lunch! Read on for my fondue lunchbox recipe!

We love fondue at our house. We have a Velata warmer, and I ordered several tubs of cheese last year on Black Friday, so for fondue night all we have to do is buy the dippers!

The kids love it, and so do I! Carter loves it so much he calls it “Carter dinner.”

I thought it would be fun to recreate the fondue experience, lunchbox-style, so after dropping Carter at school, Vanessa and Harrison and I headed to Smart & Final to get the ingredients.

When it comes to fondue, we don’t mess around. The plan was to do french bread, tortilla chips, and cheddar cheese guppies for dipping in the cheese sauce, and bananas, strawberries (not pictured), graham crackers (of the angry variety), and Kookies cereal for chocolate dipping!

Everything just fit. I’ve never bought one of those “20 piece” food storage sets because I thought the little tiny containers were a rip-off, but I could have used them for the sauces!
