Whip cream cheese until soft with knife blade of food processor. Add walnuts, raisins or dates and any remaining rum. Process until nuts and fruit are finely chopped.

Chill and release mold in center of plate. Surround with Honey Bran crackers and rounds of small Delicious apples that have been cored. This is also good on vanilla wafers or graham crackers.
