Prep Time 15 minutes
Total Time 15 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 8 oz block of cream cheese
  • ½ cup cheddar cheese
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1 cup olives, green , pitted (I buy a couple of different colored green ones)
  • 1 cup pickled mini peppers

Instructions

  1. Cut olives in half lengthwise, remove pimentos (save pimentos)
  2. If you buy small enough peppers you don't have to cut them, if you cant find small ones you can just cut small squares to use as the ornaments
  3. Add garlic salt, cheddar cheese and reserved pimentos into cream cheese until well combined.  
  4. Using your hands split the dip in half and shape into two Christmas tree shapes (see photos in post.)
  5. Place the olives all over the cream cheese shape, then add the red peppers as Christmas ornaments all over the tree as shown.
  6. Stand tree on its end, and place on a serving plate.  You can buy birthday candles in the shapes of stars to go on top, or cut a piece of fruit into a star shape to place on top.
  7. Serve along side crackers

I know this is an odd time of year to make this- but my daughter wanted a Christmas themed birthday in March so we made this dip for the adults. Not only was it easy, but everyone loved it! Keeping this for The holidays next year/. Thanks so much!
