Something Savory for Santa-Pretzel Dip!

Merry Christmas everyone! I wanted to wish you all lots of love and laughter this Christmas! We might see some snow flurries here in Philly, Woo Hoo-that's always fun!

For my Personal PIGskin Challenge this week I'm making Pretzel Dip, also called Beer Dip but I don't understand that, it has such a small amount of beer in it and that flavor is not prominent at all.
Pretzel Dip-from Taste of Home
(2) 8oz cream cheese, softened
1/3 C beer or non-alcoholic beer (I really think you could use milk if you want to)
1 envelope Ranch Salad Dressing mix
2 C (8oz) shredded cheddar cheese
In a large bowl beat the cream cheese, beer and dressing until smooth. Stir in cheddar cheese.
Serve with pretzels, refrigerate left overs.

Notes:
-I really like this folks, it's very tasty! I will make it again.
-Would be great with crackers or veggies too.
-The only problem I see... it's addicting!
-Oh, and you don't need the Christmas shaped pretzels, but they sure are fun!
-PS, day two... I just pulled the left overs out of the fridge, no doubt about it, this dip, the hoagie dip and the dried beef dip are my absolute favorites!

Beverly asked what our Christmas plans are, I'll be making a ham dinner (ssshhhh, I know, I know!!!) and my family will be coming over. I'm crossing my fingers and hoping Santa can add one more thing to his list and one of the local networks will pick up the Cards/Cowboys game Christmas night!

So, from Earl, Pudge, Pinky and the rest of the Philly Barnyard-
 Happy Holidays-Eat much, stay safe and play nice:@)
Thanks for stopping by, it means a lot to me-Have A Happy Day!
