This is quite possibly the easiest appetizer ever! Everyone will ask you what is in that? It’s not even a recipe really, just two ingredients you throw together. This is the perfect appetizer for a spur of the moment party or when you need something quick, easy and tasty! It really is quite addictive. All you do is take cream cheese and top it with red pepper jelly & serve with crackers. I love the spicy/sweet flavor that the jelly adds. I think you could also do this with strawberry or blackberry or any other type of preserves as well. A friend of mine made this for a Christmas party and I’ve made it twice since then & everyone loves it!
Cream Cheese Party Spread
1 8oz. block 1/3 less fat cream cheese
1/2 of a 10.5 oz. jar red pepper jelly or preserves of your choice
Allow cream cheese to soften slightly at room temperature (approximately 10 minutes, it will soften more as the party goes on!) Then spoon preserves over top & serve with crackers.
