In a double boiler on the stove, or in the microwave, heat the cheddar cheese and heavy cream until the cheese melts and is easy to stir. Stir until smooth. Season with sea salt and black pepper.
Meanwhile, melt the butter in a saute pan over medium heat. Add garlic and saute for about a minute, until fragrant.
