Recipe: Mandarin Orange, Cream Cheese, and Mint Appetizers

Madarin Orange and Cream Cheese Appetizers // A Well Crafted Party

Over the weekend I enjoyed several different events with tasty food… however, this little treat was my favorite! My friends Joan and Brandon hosted a wine tasting at their home and created all of the appetizers to pair with local wines. Brandon is a taste master… this simple, and quick appetizer is a knock-out winner for any party, but especially with a Muscat wine from Purple Cow Vineyards.

This is a simple and quick appetizer that is perfect for wine tastings, dinner party hors d’oeuvres, spring  parties, tea parties, and more. The ingredients and process are also super simple. Make this soon!

Mandarin Orange, Cream Cheese & Mint Appetizer Ingredients: 

  • Triscuit Crackers
  • 1 block cream cheese
  • Fresh Mint
  • Can of mandarin oranges


Mandarin Orange, Cream Cheese & Mint Appetizer Directions:

  1. Slice cream cheese into cracker sized slices about a 1/4 inch thick. Brandon sliced the cream cheese with a bit of floss. It made for just the right sized slices without a big mess.
  2. Top crackers with cream cheese pats.
  3. Top cream cheese with a mint leaf.
  4. Top mint leaf with a mandarin orange slice.
SO easy…. right!? And, it was amazing. Let me know if you try this… I hope you like it as much as I did. And, thanks so much to Brandon for letting me share his appetizer.
