For Saint Patrick’s Day, we shared some green and white table decor ideas.

And today, each of us is preparing a recipe or beverage for the dinner menu.

If you are coming from my good friend Michele from Vintage Home Designs, welcome to my home! Doesn’t that drink sound amazing? I am a huge fan of white sangria so I can’t wait to try it!!!

Doesn’t that dinner menu sound amazing?

To do my part, I’m making the best appetizer ever…an Irish Cheddar and Beer Fondue Recipe.

It is SO GOOD and is super easy to make.

Have you ever had fondue before?

Gah! It’s my favorite.

And my kids love it too!

We used to do fondue parties with a groovy 70’s theme for their birthdays and served pizza fondue.

And of course, some chocolate fondues.

It was so fun!

But I digress.

This Irish cheddar and beer fondue recipe is so creamy and delicious.

Plus it is super simple to make.

While you can make it with whatever beer you want, stout makes it better.


I love this recipe because it tastes amazing, but you can use whatever you want to dip in the fondue. You are not limited to what I’ve suggested in this recipe.

Feel free to substitute breads, crackers and other yummy vegetables.

And that’s it! I hope you have an awesome St. Paddy’s Day!
