Friends,  I was so excited to work with RITZ Crackers to share this easy DIY cheese spread with you just in time for all the holiday parties!! Cheese spreads are the best of all worlds- they are crunchy and smooth and sweet and salty and fruity and FANCY. Not to mention CHEESE. And no one knows that they only take about fifteen minutes to throw together. Holiday entertaining at its easiest.

You only need a few items to put this together. 
And most items are probably already in your pantry or fridge! But if not, you can purchase the rest of the ingredients at Walmart.

Since the anatomy of a perfect cheese spread is a mix of all things crunchy, smooth, sweet, salty, and fruity,

 ...you can get creative! Here are some ideas:

Crunchy: 
Crunchy edamame

Smooth:
Colby 
Cheddar
White Cheddar Jack
Brie
Goat Cheese (I don't like goat cheese, but HEY! You might! So go for it if it's your thing) 
Gouda
Parmigiano-Reggiano
Gorgonzola

Sweet:
Honey
Jam
Preserves

Salty:
Mixed Nuts
Pistachio 
Edamame
Olives
Artichoke hearts
Roasted Peppers

Fruit:
Thinly sliced apples 
Frozen grapes 
Fresh or dried apricots 
Sliced figs


Normally, I would say grab some butcher paper to place on your table for your cheese spread, but I cut open some brown grocery bags and they worked just as well! Easy time saver. Label each item with permanent marker, or you can use a chalkboard pen if you want to get really fancy. And you are done!
