Shrimp Dip

I got this recipe from an online homeschooling friend who has company often.  Her recipes are always good!  Wish she had a blog, I'd link to it!

1 8 oz package cream cheese
1 can baby shrimp, drained and rinsed
1 jar cocktail sauce with horseradish (don't need even half, great for doubling recipe)
Shredded mozzarella cheese (optional)
Green onions, sliced (optional)
Crackers such as Town House or Ritz

Spread cream cheese on a medium round serving platter or medium plate. Spread a thin layer of cocktail sauce on top.  Scatter baby shrimp, shredded cheese, and green onions. Chill in the refrigerator at least 30 minutes before serving.  If you have lots of big eaters, especially people who like seafood, I recommend making two.  We took one to a crowd of 16 smaller eaters, some of whom don't care for seafood, and had just enough.
