  1. STEP 1

    Combine wine and sugar in 10-inch skillet. Cook over medium-high heat 2-3 minutes or until mixture comes to a boil. Reduce heat to medium; continue cooking, stirring occasionally, 20-25 minutes or until mixture is reduced to about 1 cup.

  3. STEP 3

    Serve as a dip with cheese cubes.

Tip #1

Fondue is typically made from cheese, white wine and savory seasonings into which French bread is dipped. Here, the cheese is used as a dipper for this richly flavored fondue. Try dipping pieces of fruit, gingerbread or angel food cake as well as cheese into this shiny, berry-colored syrup.
