Red Pepper Jelly And Cream Cheese Appetizer

Recipes | December 10, 2019


This is an easy and delicious appetizer to serve anytime but especially during the holidays! The red pepper mixed with cream cheese is the perfect sweet and savory mix served alongside your favorite crackers. One dip in and you will be hooked! Come check out it!


When I say this appetizer is easy, I truly mean that! There are only 3 ingredients and it only takes under 5 minutes to put together. The best part is, that it is absolutely delicious! I love the way it looks for the holidays, as the red pepper jelly just gives it that festive color you want for any holiday party.


Once you get to the end, be sure to check out all the holiday appetizer ideas shared by several other bloggers. I cannot wait to give them a go too!

When I made this the other night at home, my husband and I basically consumed the entire thing between the two of us (lol!). I prefer to have a couple of cracker options, including multi-seed and club crackers. You can also use triscuits and/or ritz crackers.



  1. Club Crackers and/or Multi-seed Crackers

  2. Red Pepper Jelly

  3. Cream cheese block


Simply place cream cheese on a serving platter and scoop out the red pepper jelly on top of it. I just would put spoonfuls one after the next to where it was coming down the sides of the cream cheese too. Then, just add your crackers around it. It is that easy! And, you and your guests will not be able to stop eating it until it is gone haha! Can’t wait for you to try it! Now, go take a look at these other amazing appetizers!
