Hot Bacon & Cheddar Dip with Bourbon Spicy-Maple Syrup

Last month, Southern Baked joined the Pappy & Co. team in Louisville to celebrate the collaboration of our Father's Day collection with delicious food & even better company! We even got the chance to create recipes inspired by our Southern-heritage, including upgrading my favorite appetizer dish, Hot Bacon & Cheddar Dip! We used Pappy's Bourbon Barrel-Aged Spicy Maple Syrup to give this dish an extra kick of flavor, sweetness, and heat! This recipe is perfect for munching on throughout the day as you catch-up with friends or while you watch your favorite game!

I hope you enjoy this special recipe as much as we did!
