Holidays bring out the best and the worst in all of us. So, whether you are jumping for joy with Christmas cheer, dusting the dreidel for Chanukkah, or stressing because you have no idea what to cook or buy, Spiked Jellies is here to help you survive all aspects of the holidays!

Start with this little bit of advice from us and STOP THE INSANITY! Don’t you dare give Dad another tie, try to surprise Grandma with more nighties, or hand your kid’s teachers another picture frame. And if you are even thinking of bringing fudge covered Oreos to your office party, we are officially ordering you to read this entire blog – better yet, memorize it! You are no longer allowed to cop out on the holidays because it is just too difficult to think of creatively.

Become a festive foodie by using our jellies as your go-to for all holiday events. Just make sure to take recipe cards with you, because you are now the person everyone wants to invite because you bring the fun food! Here are a few holiday recipe ideas …

  • Beer Jelly Meatballs are a favorite! Just grab our Belgian White beer jelly, a package of frozen meatballs, 1/3 jar of chili sauce and a splash of pineapple juice, and cook for 3-4 hours. Done! (Moscato with a splash of orange juice and meatballs is also a popular way to go!)
  • Grab some Jalapeno Riesling wine jelly and throw it over some cream cheese or step it up by making a canapé with toasted French bread, a sautéed scallop, and some jelly. YUMMY!
  • Everyone loves mini egg rolls and spring rolls, but bring some Sake Ginger wine jelly to drizzle over it for a win!
  • Make Cabernet Black Forest Cupcakes! Bake your favorite chocolate cake, glaze while warm with Cabernet wine jelly, let it cool, glaze again and frost with chocolate! Then stand back as people fight over them!

If these ideas aren’t enough, contact us for our recipe ideas list. We promise that there is something for everyone!!!
