"It has a sweet and slight pepper taste. Anyone that tries this loves it and it doesn't get much easier! You should be able to find the jelly in the jelly section at your local grocery store. Serve with crackers."

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.


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!


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 attractive. One friend of mine plops the pepper jelly over the brick of cream cheese, then decorates the plate with leaves, and somehow that seems to get it eaten quicker. ??? Presentation is everything I guess. :)
