Whip Up At Home
Here are three simple combinations you can whip up in a few minutes for homemade flavor! Simply mix together: horseradish sauce and mustard; Sriracha and mayo; and chopped sun dried tomatoes, bacon bits and mayo.
Ready for more? The two easy combos below merely require mixing the components into melted butter. To make garlic chive butter sauce, mince chives, garlic (or garlic scapes!) and add to butter. For pretzel lovers who want to try a sweeter dipping sauce, mix cinnamon and sugar granules into the butter. You could also have a separate bowl of coarse sugar crystals to sprinkle on top, mimicking the standard, coarse salted pretzel look.
