Servings 15 people


  • Knife and cutting board


  • 8 oz block of cream cheese I recommend full fat
  • ½ cup Jalapeno Pepper Jelly
  • crackers


  • Take a cold block of cream cheese out of the fridge and place on a cutting board.
    Use a knife to cut a bone shape out of the block. Then use your hands to mold some of the cuttings back onto the block to form the bone.
    Carefully use a butter knife to scrape the cream cheese bone off the cutting board and onto the serving platter. (If you feel the cream cheese has gotten too soft to move in one piece place it back in the fridge to firm up before transferring).
    Pour the Jalapeno Pepper Jelly over the cream cheese bone and serve with crackers and a knife. Allow your guests to help themselves.
    Enjoy and Happy Halloween!
