What a wonderful time of year it is! The parties are happening, the food is generous and the drinks are flowing! Whether you are hosting a party or attending one, food and drink is definitely a central part of any party! As a busy mom who doesn't have a ton of time these days especially if I am planning a party or a holiday get together, the last thing I want is a labor intensive snack or spending a long time at the grocery store. I made a delicious cream cheese dip to go with crackers, specifically two Mondelez company crackers, Wheat Thins and Ritz Popped Chips  and to accompany this snack, a Coca-Cola or smartwater! Both products can be found in aisles near each other in Stater Bros grocery stories, no need to search all over for these items!  Additionally, you can save $1 with a Digital Deal when purchasing two participating products.

If you are having friends over or just a mom gathering, you can have plenty of this cream cheese dip on hand and then if you run out with celebrating this holiday season with friends, refill the bowl with the dip, add some more crackers and pass around more bottles of Coca-Cola or smartwater!

To make this cream cheese dip for crackers, you need 1 block of cream cheese, softened, zest of 1 orange, 1 tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary, 1/2 cup chopped dried cranberries, black pepper. 
In your mixing bowl, cream up the cream cheese a little bit. Add in the orange zest then mix.

Now add in the chopped up dried cranberries followed by the fresh rosemary.

Lastly, crack some black pepper into the cream cheese dip.

Having the balance of the savory and sweet makes this dip a delicious favorite and the bright, festive colors of green, red and orange make it a perfect holiday snack!
Scrap all of the cream cheese dip into a bowl for serving. If the cream cheese is too softened for your desire, pop the bowl in the refrigerator for a bit then serve with the Wheat Thins and Ritz Popped Chips (Mondelez products) like I selected. Don't forget the cold Coca-Cola or smartwater!
Enjoy and happy holidays!
