I went to a fun Christmas party last week and this is the Warm Cheesy Dip that I took. We loaded the plate with chips and the dip was nice and warm, which turned out great because the weather that we have been having has been in the 30’s, and sometimes you just need something nice and warm.

How Do I Make Warm Cheesy Dip?
- In a 6 cup, or large, micro wave safe bowl, grate or cube the cheese into 2″ cubes.

- Stir the mixture well until it is completely combined.
- Mix 2 Tablespoons butter, 2 Tablespoons flour, 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1 cup milk in a small saucepan over medium heat, stir constantly until smooth and the sauce thickens up.
- As soon as it starts to thicken, remove it from the stove top and mix with the cheese mixture.
