How do you serve hot pepper jelly?
This is my favorite way to serve hot pepper jelly.
Spread a water cracker with cream cheese and dab on a bit of pepper jelly. Don't want to get all fancy with the spreading and dabbing?
Plop a brick of cream cheese on a plate and pour the jelly over it. Stick a butter knife in it and lay a package of crackers next to it. Your guests will go nuts over this treat!
