One of my favorite parts of the holiday season is our family’s annual pre-Christmas birthday bash.

We celebrate three birthdays in December. Mine is the 13th, my daughter’s birthday is the 14th, and my dad’s birthday is the 15th.

Needless to say, it’s a wonderful excuse to have a big holiday party, and these cheddar bacon ranch pinwheels are on the menu every year!

While I love hosting this annual gathering, I don’t always want to spend a lot of time with complicated dishes.

It’s why I love creating recipes with Heluva Good! Dips.

In fact, I’ve got a whole bunch of creative cooking ideas utilizing my favorite Heluva Good! Dips. Don’t miss my loaded mini brats, and this super-cute owl veggie plate.

Whether you’re dipping veggies, pretzels, or chips, Heluva Good! brings all the flavor to your holiday gathering.

You can also get super creative with Heluva Good! Dips. I love using the Buttermilk Ranch in these pinwheels, and I always serve on a platter with one or two open dip containers.

My mouth is watering just thinking about these cheddar bacon ranch pinwheels!

There are so many ways you can adapt this recipe to meet your preferences.

For the holidays, I love using red and green bell peppers to make the pinwheels look a little more festive.

Don’t forget that layer of Heluva Good! Buttermilk ranch dip that should be spread on your crescent dough before adding the other filling ingredients.

The dip gives these pinwheels incredible flavor and also helps hold everything together!
