Toasted Walnut Honey Cream Cheese Spread

I am not a huge fan of plain cream cheese, but I think it is a great base for several thing. Buffalo chicken dip, frosting, and on and on. Someone brought bagels and cream cheese from Panera Bread the other day and one of the choices was honey walnut. Hmmm, it can't be that hard to make, right? Right! Three ingredients and some stirring.....voila! (I know, how do I not have my own cooking show yet?)

Toasted Walnut Honey Cream Cheese Spread


Toasted Walnut Honey Cream Cheese Spread
4 oz softened cream cheese (I used fat free, regular or reduced fat will work too)
1 T pure honey (agave will also work)
1/4 C chopped walnuts, toasted

In a small bowl, slightly mash cream cheese with a fork. Add honey and stir. 

Add chopped walnuts and mix everything together. Cover and place in fridge to firm back up a little bit. Serve.

Chris brought home this pretty cinnamon raisin swirl bread so I toasted it and slathered it with this spread. And love.

Yum yum. You could dip little ginger snap or pumpkin cookies in this. It could also be used as a fruit dip. Not quite as healthy as the peanut butter yogurt dip, but that's ok.

  2. You are right...cream cheese can use a little something extra in it to make it interesting...Plus...it is more economical to buy the plain and add what you want to it. Great idea! Michele (the finicky fork) : )
