We made a yummy Green Bean, Stuffing, and Brie appetizer. For this last one, we wanted to go a little more daring and decorative for our upcoming holiday parties! We created a ham and Swiss cheese appetizer with a dollop of sweet and spicy jalapeño jelly!

We used a snowflake cookie cutter to make little snowflakes out of the cheese with a dollop of jelly in the middle. The result was as pretty as it was delicious. All of the flavors blended together for the perfect combo of savory with a tiny kick of spicy and sweetness from the jalapeño jelly.

We wanted all 3 of these appetizers to be something that would be easy to make and scrumptious to eat. Try Triscuit Cranberry & Sage crackers and this recipe out at your next holiday gathering or party – you will not be disappointed!
