A new twist on the childhood snack, "ants on a log"—this grown-up version is made with cream cheese, dried cranberries, and almonds. We used mixed berry whipped cream cheese, but plain would also work. Whipped cream cheese is lower in fat and calories and easier to spread thanks to whipping process. Experiment with different dried fruit and nuts to find your favorite!
