Heat all ingredients except for cream cheese in saucepan over medium heat.
Keep stirring as the cranberries pop and continue stirring until the cranberries are softened and the mixture has a salsa consistency (about 10 minutes). Remove from heat and cool the mixture to room temperature.
Open the brick of cream cheese and place on a serving platter and then pour the cranberry mixture over the cream cheese.
Serve with chips or crackers.
