I grew up doing the cream cheese with the pepper jelly spread on top, but this is much better! Very simple and easy. Thanks wildhorse for posting!
I made this and mixed part of the jelly with the cream cheese and made a mound of cheese on a plate and poured the rest of the jelly over it. I served it with Corn chips and this was really good.
This stuff was pretty tasty and easy to make. I didn't realize that the jar of hot pepper jelly I bought wasn't 4 oz until it was too late so I had to remake the stuff as it turned out way too runny the first time (this is my fault though as I didn't read the instructions clearly nor the bottle of jelly). I used the red pepper jelly and it was very festive for my Christmas Eve party. I served this with snowflake shaped Ritz crackers. Thanks for posting!
Don't mix this together. Put a softened block of cream cheese on a dish and cover with the pepper jelly. Put a few spreaders nearby just in case the block isn't soft enough. I prefer to serve this with wheat thins.
I made this for a Superbowl party. I used jalapeno jelly. Someone else, coincidentally, had brought one of the more traditional serving methods of using the block of cream cheese with the jelly poured over it on a platter with crackers. That one got eaten...mine did not. I think the jelly kind of loses its punch when it is blended like this, unfortunately. I tasted the other one and I have to say I preferred it also. Everyone ate the Bugles though! Sorry...I just didn't care for this recipe.
Doesn't get much easier or better than this recipe. Great for a football party. Have done the recipe where you pour pepper jelly over cream cheese and it was okay but this recipe with mixing the two was much better. A little sweet, a little spicy. Perfection!
I had this at a Super Bowl party several years ago with Keebler Town House crackers and it is so easy and delicious! I had a hard time staying away from it! Thank you for sharing.
I love this easy and attractive dip and have made it for every pary or get together I have had for the last few years. To make this more festive I use a star or heart-shaped mold with a removeable bottom and spread softened cream cheese into it. Then top with the jar of hot pepper jelly and refrigerate for a few hours or over night. When you unmold it looks really nice and the taste combo can't be beat!
You're hungry? Oh, save your breath, I know what you want. Here, try this!
I love this recipe! Especially, the idea to mix it together! I recently had the "traditional version" (cream cheese on bottom of dish, pepper jelly poured on top) for the first time at a holiday party. I really enjoyed the taste but I found the hard way that the jelly would "slide" off the cream cheese, thus causing quite a stain on a shirt or blouse. The hostess had a variety of crackers on the side, I preferred the Triscut.
