Cream Cheese and Pepper Jam – The Perfect Little Appetizer

Cream Cheese and Pepper Jam The Perfect Little Appetizer | ShesGotFlavor

Wanna know how I discovered this perfect appetizer with cream cheese, wheat thins and pepper jam?  Well I pulled up to the Amish market as I do every Saturday morning.  I had my list in hand and my tummy craving for one of their “made right in front of you” donuts – Boston Cream to be exact!  While purchasing some cocoa powder for my children to make hot chocolate, I noticed a tray of samples.  I decided to try one and honey honey honey, talk about return on investment; I immediately bought the cream cheese, wheat thins and the pepper jam!  It was the PERFECT flavor combination.  It was as if they were triplets!!  I ran home and made a bunch and let’s just say there was a small debate over who would get the last one!  My daughter won but then of course I ended up making two more to satisfy that last craving for my son and husband!

That Sunday, I already had plans to go to a friends house for a fashion accessory party she was having.  I decided to bring my Perfect Little Appetizers (I brought the ingredients to the party and made them there)!  Honey honey honey – those ladies ate em’ up like they were a box of chocolates!  You have got to try them … easy to make and oh so satisfying!

oh yeah!
