Spray tops of pretzel bites with water, then sprinkle with salt. (If desired, preheat oven to 350 degrees. Bake salted pretzel bites until warmed, 3 minutes.)
Heat cream sauce base in a small pot over medium-low heat. Bring to a low simmer and cook, whisking, until sauce begins to thicken, 1 minute. Reduce heat to low; slowly add in cheese, whisking constantly. Cook until cheese has melted and sauce has thickened; season with salt and pepper to taste.
Serve with BBQ cashews, churro-inspired almonds, and cheese sauce on the side.
