    I followed the recipe *exactly* as written. It looked nothing like the picture and tasted like cream cheese with ranch dressing. I added another half cup of beer and cup of shredded cheese, then took the mix to the microwave. After 10 mins (power level 5), it was finally deliciously perfect! - 12/27/13

    I used Neufchatel cheese instead and regular beer (all I had). Still lower calorie and very delish! Dipped pretzel sticks in it. I would make again, and I think if I brought for a carry in, noone would know it was a Spark recipe! - 2/20/11

  • It's a 4 star recipe but I like it all melted together then chilled so there's no chunks - 6/21/16

  • So, you serve it alcoholic? Not very wise if someone is an alcoholic. - 4/30/16

    How much is one serving?? I need a measurement to count calories! - 1/31/14

  • I'd try this with Guinness. 12 oz of Guinness has 125 calories, so using even half of it would have about the same calories as the "light" beer used in the recipe (if you look at calories by ingredient, the beer in this recipe is 1 cal/serving and the recipe makes 60 servings) and would taste better - 1/29/14
