Ho ho ho... It's holiday party season! And don't you have enough to do? My to-do list is a mile long and growing. That's why with countless parties, school events, and impromptu get-togethers to contend with I'm always on the lookout for quick and easy recipes that I can assemble in minutes for just such an occasion. My go-to recipe for holiday parties was always the baked brie dip. While delicious and easy, it requires heating and let's face it – That's not always practical.
This is a great alternative that I promise will be equally well received, is easier to transport (in your mason jar of course) and you can whip together in minutes. All you need is a package of cream cheese, maple syrup, cinnamon, nutmeg, caramel sauce (store bought works fine) and chopped pecans. Serve with sliced apples for a delicious cheesecake-inspired crowd-pleaser that you can feel good about serving guests.
Looking for a vegan alternative? Tofutti is a great swap-out for the cream cheese that is equally delicious.
Happy Holidays to you and yours from JarJackets!
