    Hey Julie. This dip looks so good, I can taste it already. Maybe it wasn’t smart of me to find your blog when I was hungry. πŸ˜€ I’ll put your cheddar soft pretzel dip on my “have to make this week” list.

    Possibly a stupid question but is this recipe still good at room temp/cold? Or does the cheese reharden? Im looking for pretzel dip ideas for a picnic so heat is out of the question.
