Like best of my admired “bars” – this is alllll about the dips. Sure, you could accomplish altered varieties of bendable pretzels (jalapeno chedder and pepperoni and biscuit amoroso and what not) but for me? I aloof appetite the dips. Accord me alllll the dips.

The brilliant of the appearance actuality is the chipotle cheddar beer cheese. With October appropriate on the horizon, I’m accessible to alpha active in beer cheese central. I’ve fabricated beer cheese snacks on the blog for years now and bistro beer cheese soup a actor years ago with my mom is one of my best active memories. There are few things as adorable as beer cheese.

What do we accept here, abreast from the pretzels and beer cheese dip? An angel adulate Dijon dip (that Eddie absolutely told us about! Like what?!), some ranch, dejected cheese and acceptable old honey mustard. Oh oh and a little bit of chicken alacrity too. Because how can you eat pretzels after mustard?!

The dips are all up to you. You can go actually crazy on what you’d like to serve. As a self-proclaimed alacrity aberration (who basically has a alacrity collection), I accept the briney and abominable dips over agronomical or added dressing-like dips.

You can additionally consistently do candied dips, like a biscuit amoroso or cream-cheese based candied dip. Alike a absolute caramel or hot fudge!

Keep in apperception that the pretzels are SO carby. I mean, okay, obviously, like you apperceive that. It’s a big old hunk of bread. But I acquisition hot pretzels to be so abundant and carby that I rarely amplify it, so I’d accumulate your dips to a best of about six if you’re confined this at a party. That way, you won’t be larboard with a ton of waste.

And in the spirit of EXTENUATIVE YOU TIME: I advance you buy the pretzels if you can. Yes, I accept a compound area you can accomplish your own. You can accomplish buns or twists or bowls or nuggets. But bendable pretzels alone aftermost for a abbreviate aeon of time (I allegorize them to dried donuts. Ha!), so use your time wisely and if you can get aperitive ones abreast you, do it. And absorb your time authoritative dips!
