Pesto Swiss Fondue

I really think this was the best dinner I have ever made! I'm quite proud of myself. Not that I can take credit, because it was just an awesome recipe. It is full of flavor and fondue is always super classy. We served this at a dinner party we hosted and had each couple bring a few of the dipping foods. This could also serve as a romantic dinner for two, or a beautiful spread to impress the in-laws with. No matter who you serve it to, they'll
So delish . . .

{What you need}
1 12oz. block of swiss cheese, cubed
2 T flour
2 large garlic cloves, chopped (I used a garlic press)
1/2-3/4 c. of white cooking wine (I used 3/4 c)
1/2 c. milk
2 T of jarred prepared pesto

{Ideas for dipping}
cubed french bread
granny smith apples
new potatoes or cubed red potatoes

Cube cheeses and chop garlic. Place cubed cheese in a tupperware and add flour. Replace the tupperware lid and shake until all the cheese cubes are coated. Spray a medium sauce pan with cooking spray and add the chopped garlic. Cook on medium high until the garlic just begins to brown. Then add wine. When the wine begins to boil, reduce the heat back to medium and slowly add the flour coated cheese and milk a little at a time, always stirring so it will not burn. When the cheese is all fully melted, add the pesto, transfer to heated fondue pot, and serve immediately. If you are not using a fondue pot you may need to reheat it after a little while as the fondue will thicken as it cools.
