Pepper Jelly Dip Alternatives:

Pepper Jelly can be used in a variety of ways.

When used as a dip, it has a sweet and slightly peppery taste. 

I purchased my Pepper Jelly from a local Farmer’s Market.

The vendor supplied me with a printout of numerous recipes and ways to use the Pepper Jelly.

Invaluable information!

When combined with cream cheese, it makes a delicious appetizer.

 It can be used as a glaze on vegetables or meats.

Another alternative is a great topping for bread and ice cream.

One friend of mine plops the Pepper Jelly over the brick of cream cheese and serves it with wheat thins.

 I like the idea of individually arranging the cream cheese & jelly on each cracker ahead of time so 

maybe it will look a little more attractive.

The presentation is important!

 Pepper Jelly Dip Mixing Instructions:

I love this appetizer!

To change it up a bit, I sometimes stir it all together and then serve it as a cheese spread.

I recently hosted a baby shower.

To keep with the theme, I decided to make and mold the cream cheese and pepper jelly mixture to resemble a baby rattle.

Pepper jelly

Soften two 8 ounce blocks of cream cheese.

Mix thoroughly with an 8-ounce jar of pepper jelly.

Press the mixture into a small round dish lined with saran wrap.

This will form the top of the rattle.

Roll a long circular portion of the mixture to make the handle of the rattle.

Chill until firm and then turn it out onto your serving platter.

Serve with crackers!

I can’t believe how easy and tasty this was!  

 Everyone will love it.
