Cream Cheese Christmas Tree with Breadstick Toasties

This dish is fun to prep with your kids and keeps them merrily involved with holiday entertaining – they can decorate the cream cheese Christmas tree with vegetables!


1 package of Furlani Breadsticks

Cream cheese – 1 package of the rectangular block style (not the spread)


1  Red bell pepper, thinly sliced

1 Orange pepper, thinly sliced

2 Chives stalks cut up

1 celery stalk, cut up (about 1 inch)


Prepare Furlani Garlic Breadsticks as per packaging directions.

Let the breadsticks cool, then cut into slices.

Next, toast the sliced breadsticks in an oven or toaster oven until they’re golden.

Set aside.

Cut the block of cream cheese diagonally in half and place on a serving plate to form a triangle.

Cut vegetables into various shapes – use these pieces to decorate the “tree”.

Cut celery into 1- inch piece and place at bottom of tree.

Serve with the breadstick chips.

Biscuits and salsa are the perfect holiday poppers – whether you need a quick something-something for your holiday guests or simply snuggling on the couch with family and friends … heat up a basket of biscuits, dip them in salsa and pop ‘em in your mouth! Instant delight!
