  • 1

    Slice cheddar and cream cheese and alternate slices in a row in storage container. Making slices about 1/2 inch in width -- if you make them smaller , it falls apart. Mix all other ingredients together and pour over top of cheeses. Refrigerate overnight.

  • 2

    Transfer to serving dish and pour left over marinate over top. Drain off any watery sauce.

  • 3

    Serve with choice of crackers. I let it out for a little bit before serving to soften up or microwave for about 25 seconds.
