Face Rock Fondue

Our 12-month savory cheddars make a delightful addition to beer and cider fondues. Here we’ve used our spicy In Your Face cheddar to balance the sweetness of hard cider. We made our fondue on the stovetop and transferred it to a small hollowed out loaf of crusty bread for a fun (and edible!) serving dish.

Pro tip! An 8-oz block of Face Rock grates into 2 cups of shredded cheese.


  • 1 clove of garlic, chopped or sliced
  • ¾ cup hard or non-alcohol cider, separated
  • 1.5 – 2 cups grated Face Rock In Your Face Cheddar
  • 1.5 – 2 cups grated Emmentaller Cheese
  • 1 Tablespoon Cornstarch
  • Dippers, sliced into bite size pieces
    • Crusty bread
    • Pretzels
    • Green apples
    • Smoked sausage


  1. Heat the cider and garlic to a simmer in a medium sauce pan. Reduce heat to low.
  2. Combine 1.5 cups Cheddar and 1.5 cups Emmentaller. Toss with cornstarch.
  3. Add the cheese mixture to the cider bit by bit, stirring constantly with a whisk to avoid the cheese splitting. Add additional cheese if the mixture remains runny. If it becomes too thick, add a tablespoon more of cider.
  4. When smooth, it’s ready!
  5. Pour into a serving bowl or fondue pot, or hollow out a small crusty loaf of bread to serve as your bowl.
  6. Serve immediately with a variety of dippers.
