Pepper Jelly and Cream Cheese

Pepper Jelly Cream Cheese

Today’s entry is Number 6 on our “28 Ways to Eat Pepper Jelly” — Pour Pepper Jelly on Top of Cream Cheese for a Dip.

This is incredibly easy and it disappeared in a “heartbeat”….meaning my guests devoured this one in no time.

Note: If you are having a large group and dinner is going to take some time, then you may want to double the recipe ingredients.


  • 8 oz Block of Cream Cheese
  • 4 – 6 oz Pepper Jelly.
  • Your favorite Dipping Crackers. Use “thicker crackers” to prevent breaking.


  1. Place cream cheese on the counter to let soften for about 20 minutes.
  2. If you pepper jelly has been in the refrigerator, then set it out for about 20 – 30 minutes to soften.  You can microwave also, but use caution.  Trust me, it is easy to microwave too long and end up with soup.
  3. Using a spoon, dip pepper jelly onto the cream cheese.  Serve with crackers.

This is really simple, but your guests will love it!
