Pretzel Beer Cheese Dip
This pretzel beer cheese dip has a sophisticated taste but is so easy to make! Full of cheddar flavor and, perfect for pretzel dunking!
- ½ cup heavy cream
- 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 1 teaspoon dijon mustard
- ½ teaspoon garlic powder
- ⅛ teaspoon cayenne pepper
- ¼ teaspoon black pepper
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- ¼ cup beer organic lager
- 1 ¾ cups extra old cheddar cheese freshly grated
- ¼ cup pizza mozzarella freshly grated
In a small saucepan melt the heavy cream and butter on medium heat. Do not allow the mixture to boil as you can burn the butter and cream.
Once melted add the spices and mustard. Mix to combine.
Next, add the beer and cook on medium heat for one minute.
Remove from the heat and stir in the cheeses. If they don’t melt completely return to the heat on low and mix until the dip is smooth and creamy.
Transfer to a serving bowl and serve immediately with soft pretzels!
This dip is best made close to when you want to serve it. It will reheat but the texture is best when it’s freshly made.
If you find the dip too thin add 1 tablespoon of flour to a small amount of the dip, mix well and return it to the saucepan and it will thicken quickly. If the dip is too thick add a bit more cream, butter, or a splash of milk or beer. Mix until the desired consistency.
If you don’t have soft pretzels you can serve this dip with warm baguette slices, crispy pretzels, or raw veggies! Drinking a beer is also an excellent complement to this dip!
