Why I Love This Recipe

Taken from : THE PARTY SNACKS COOKBOOK (a 1979 edition of Southern Living Cookbook Library.)

Ingredients You'll Need

1 c. apple jelly
1 (11-oz.) can mandarin orange sections, drained
1 (8oz.) pkg. cream cheese, softened
1 tbsp. grated orange rind
1 Tbsp. milk
1 (8 oz.) cans orange-nut bread


Heat jelly just untill melted in a small saucepan; remove from heat.

Place orange sections, a few at a time, in jelly, turning to coat well. Lift out with a fork and place on a wire rack set over waxed paper; let stand until jelly sets.

Blend cream cheese, orange rind, and milk in a small bowl.

Slice bread into 16 rounds; halve each.

Spread with cheese mixture; top each with 1 large or 2 small mandarin orange sections.

NOTE: I have not made this, but plan to. Thought I would share rec.
