10 Fun Ways to Celebrate New Year's with the Family

3 of 11
CheeseFondue

Try a Different Sort of Meal


Cheese fondue is a fun, communal meal that everyone enjoys. You'll need a heavy pot for the fondue, a hot plate or burner to keep the fondue warm on the table, some long forks, and a loaf of crusty bread. Cut the bread into bite-sized pieces, keeping some crust on each piece. When the fondue is ready, gather everyone around the pot with individual forks. Take turns spearing the bread and swirling it in the melted cheese. If you lose your piece of bread in the pot, tradition says you may have to kiss the person on your left, kiss everyone at the table, or pay a forfeit devised by others at the table.

Dessert fondue calls for melted chocolate and pieces of fruit. Both types of fondue go great with champagne (ginger ale for the kids), making fondue the perfect dish for New Year's Eve!
