Cheddar Garlic Pretzel Dip for a Virtual Potluck

Please help me out by leaving a comment at the bottom of this post right after you finish reading…

 Y’all, this Cheddar Garlic Pretzel Dip is about to be your go to dip to take to parties and share with friends.

It’s yummier than the others you may have tasted…

You might know this dip’s cousin with cream cheese and ranch seasonings, but this recipe, using spoonable smooth Philadelphia Cooking Creme makes it even easier… there’s no waiting for the cream cheese to soften and no need for a food processor. Plus the Savory Garlic flavor packs a punch! Combine that with the triple cheddar, chili powder and beer, and, well, I hope you’ll agree that you’ve got a winner on your hands!

It’s so easy and barely has any clean-up…

You can make it right in the bowl you use to serve it, it’s that easy and mess-free.  Just blend the three or four ingredients with a spoon, refrigerate for a few hours so all the yumminess and smokey, garlicky flavor merge together, and get ready to delight your tastebuds and friends.

It’s even man-friendly…

My test-tasters last night even agreed that this was a dip their husbands would like, too.
