Praline Cream Cheese Appetizer


Note: I was invited to a party (Pampered Chef, Tupperware, something) and the hit of the night was this appetizer. Everybody just stood around the kitchen eating straight from the appetizer platter. None of us really knew each other, but we formed an instant bond over this appetizer.

Praline Cream Cheese Appetizer

Ingredients:
1 stick butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup pecan pieces
2 blocks of cream cheese
1/2 cup of cheddar cheese (optional)
Wheat Thins

Directions:
Melt 1 stick butter in a cast iron skillet. Stir in 1 cup brown sugar and 1 cup pecan pieces.
Stir constantly until carmelized. Remove from heat and pour over two blocks of cream cheese. Sprinkle with ½ c. grated cheddar cheese. Serve with wheat thins.

Personally, I didn’t think the cheddar makes that much difference. Some people feel the cheese cuts down on the sweetness, but I don't notice it. I don't usually use the cheese.
