Beer Cheese Pretzel and Dip


"My best friend shared this recipe with me, and we are SO SICK of making it -- but it's always requested at our parties! We have made the pretzel in various shapes, depending on the occasion (e.g., hearts, sorority letters, etc.). The pretzel may be partially baked ahead of time and frozen. The dip may also be prepared in advance."

This is a great recipe . . . easy to make and very good.

I took this to a party and got rave reviews. I used someone's suggestion of melting the cheese sauce in a mini crock pot rather than using a food processor - worked good. I also shaped the doug...

I absolutely love this recipe! I have given the recipe out so many times. It is definitely a winner!

The bread was so good. Everyone loved it. It was fairly simple to make. The dip was good and I think would be great with other dippers beside the bread. It had just the right flavor and was d...
