Beer Cheese Pretzel and Dip

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."

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...
