  1. I tried both red pepper jelly and jalapeño jelly. I liked the red pepper better. Basically the jelly with the cheese creates a spicy cheese flavor. Tasted neither good nor bad. Presents ugly. Brought to a meeting. Will not create again.
  2. I love this appetizer! I make my own pepper jelly and mold the cream cheese in a small round dish or make a log out of it so it doesn't look like a brick of cheese:) Just line the dish with saran wrap - soften the cheese and press it into the dish. Chill until - Read more ...
  3. I've made this twice. Each time I used different kinds of jalepeno pepper jelly and it was gobbled up - people couldn't get enough. I now keep a jar of pepper jelly and the cream cheese on hand for a quick appetizer for surprise company.
  4. This is always a huge success.I use it often. To change it up a bit I sometimes stir it all together and then serve it as a cheese spread with pepper water crackers. Same flavor but just a different way to serve it.It is also great with Fritos "Scoops" chips.
  5. Lovely and tasty served on a platter with brie several varieties of crackers and surrounded by large seedless grapes.
  6. There is a similar recipe which I prefer called "Hot Jezebel". Take a jar of orange marmalade and mix in some horseradish to taste over low heat. Our the mixture over the cream cheese and spread on bread or crackers. Good stuff!
  7. This has always been a favorite of mine, and goes quick at parties! I serve it with Peppridge Farm Butterfly crackers, and have used raspberry or cranberry pepperjelly. Great flavor! I like the idea of arranging the cream cheese & jelly on each cracker ahead of time so maybe it will look a little more - Read more ...
  8. This stuff is awesome! I crave it! My dad had it at my son's birthday party and stated that it "would taste great on a roof tile". My favorite type of jelly to use (if you can find it) is raspberry chipotle jelly - YUM!!!!
  9. This is really yummy. I made a plate of appetizers for a party by spreading a little cream cheese on top of snack crackers then a little blop of jalapeno jelly on top of each one. I brought home an empty plate. Quick and easy but oh so good.
  10. I love this appetizer. It is definitely addictive. I tried it the first time at a church event. It was made with homemade jelly. I went to a party and tried it again. I asked the hostess how to make it. She said you just buy a jar of pepper jelly and pour it over - Read more ...
