Ohhhhh it’s almost the weekend:) Here is the perfect thing to make for your happy hour…..

Yes….it is fake cheese…but it is the best “cheese” to use for dips because it actually melts and remains creamy. This dip is really great to take to tailgates too because if you leave it in a little crock on low it will be good for hours. Dip veggies in it…it will make you feel better about eating fake cheese…You’d think I tailgate a lot…seeing as I tend to reference it a bunch…I don’t tailgate a lot….but I know that people do that this time of year.

What can I say….I am helpful like that….moving on…It also taste good just eating it on your couch in front of your tv…:)
