No need to fear summer get-togethers any longer. With my recipe for the world’s easiest appetizer, you will be entertaining with ease.
This appetizer is not only easy, but it is also versatile. You only need three items to make this appetizer that is not only delicious but also impressive:
- 8 ounces of cream cheese
- Jelly, jam, preserves, or cocktail sauce
- Box of Nut-Thins
Here’s the versatility part: you can change out the flavors of the jelly or jam as well as the variety of Nut-Thins to create hundreds of different appetizers.
There are NINE varieties of Original Nut-Thins: Almond, Hint of Sea Salt, Pecan, Smokehouse®, Cheddar Cheese, Country Ranch, Pepper Jack, Honey Mustard, and Honey Cinnamon. There are FIVE varieties of Artisan Nut-Thins: Flax Seed, Multiseed, Sesame Seed, Chia Seed, and Asiago Cheese. That makes FOURTEEN varieties of Nut-Thins.
When you combine the different varieties of Nut-Thins with all of the different types of jellies, jams, and preserves – the possibilities are endless!
Easy Appetizer Ideas
For those who like a little spice, layer a Pepper Jack Cheese Nut-Thins with cream cheese and top with a spicy jalapeno or habanero jelly.
For a classy appetizer, top Artisan Nut-Thins with cream cheese and fig preserves.
At the beach or dreaming of being there? Transport your taste buds to the beach by pairing Blue Diamond Hint of Sea Salt Nut-Thins with cream cheese, cocktail sauce and top with cooked small shrimp.
How easy is that?! This appetizer is perfect for people who don’t like to cook, those who DON’T cook, or those busy people who don’t have time to cook. Your summer dinner party, Fourth of July cookout, and rainy-day-just-because appetizer conundrum has been solved.
How To Make the Easiest Appetizer in the World
- Take a block of cream cheese and place it on a serving plate.
- Warm ½ – 1 cup of jelly, jam, or preserves so that it can be poured over the cream cheese. You can do that either by putting it in a small pot and warming over low heat on the stove top or by microwaving it for about 20 – 30 seconds on HIGH. Stir the jelly well.
- Top cream cheese with warmed jelly, jam, or preserves.
- Serve with Nut Thins.
