  2. Stir in cheddar cheese until desired consistency.
  3. Serve with pretzels and enjoy!

Savory Cracker Snack Mix

Another addicting favorite that will soon be your go-to game day snack.





  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. In a large bowl, combine cheese sticks, crackers, and pretzels.
