Beer Cheese Dip

I’ll be honest, I’ve only had beer cheese dip for the first time in the last 2-3 years. I had no idea what I was missing out on though!

The warm beer cheese with some pretzels is a great snack to having during October, especially during football season.

I wanted to take a bit of a twist with this recipe and somehow wanted to get more protein in this recipe. So of course, the best option is to use/add Kodiak Cake mix to it. In this case, we’re using the Kodiak Cake Carb Conscious Protein Mix.

Alright, so let’s get down to the ingredients for this. 


  • 3 tbs of Kodiak Cake Carb Conscious Protein Mix (Or replace with flour)
  • 1/4 tsp of salt
  • 1 cup of whole milk
  • 2/3 cup of beer of your choice
  • 2 tablespoons of butter
  • 2 teaspoons of Worchester sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon of cayenne pepper or paprika
  • 1 teaspoon of garlic powder
  • 2 cups of sharp cheddar cheese

If you rather have a quick image you can save, here you go:



  • Shred cheese in a bowl
  • Melt butter in a saucepan on medium heat
  • Mix flour and Kodiak Cake mix and pour in once butter is melted
  • Whisk in saucepan
  • Add milk slowly and continue to whisk
  • Add other ingredients one by one and continue to whisk
  • Once the mixture is starting to bubble, you can take off the heat

Again, if you rather have an easy image you can save, here you go:


Note: The texture will get thicker the longer it sits so don’t feel like you need to keep adding more Kodiak Cake mixture or flour to it.

BBQ Apricot Wings

It’s that time of year and football is back! There is no better way of celebrating football than having some good ole BBQ Wings. 

For this recipe though, we’re going to be doing something a little bit different and using Kodiak Cakes corn mix and Kodiak Cakes Apricot Syrup to make BBQ Apricot Wings.

I know, syrup + wings don’t sound like a great combination. However, this recipe doesn’t make them come out sweet at all, and if anything gives a little bit of tang to it. 

As well, the Kodiak Cakes Corn Mix adds a bit more protein and fiber then you would normally find in flour. With 8 grams of protein per serving and 2 grams of fiber per serving. (1/4 cup is serving and this recipe calls for 1/2 cup so 16g of protein and 4g of fiber)
