Cranberry Pepper Jelly Dip

One of the simplest dip recipes I've ever made is the ever so popular red pepper jelly dip.  I mean it's hardly even a recipe; a block of cream cheese with pepper jelly poured over the top.  But, it's so good and so addicting.

Since we are officially in the "seasons of food" I decided to give that infamous dip a little holiday twist with the addition of cranberries.  I promise, this addition doesn't complicate the recipe at all.  It's still a matter of opening a package of cream cheese and a jar of jelly, but you mix in a touch of cranberry sauce to add a nice holiday twist.


The spicy pepper jelly is complimented by the tartness from the cranberry sauce and it all pairs perfectly with tangy cream cheese. Drag a butter Club cracker through it and you've got a perfectly delicious appetizer that will definitely be a crowd pleaser at your holiday gatherings.
