Christmas Package Cheese Snack
Spread some holiday cheer at your family gathering with this savory appetizer.
8 ounces of cream cheese (softened)
1/2 teaspoon dried dill (fresh is even better)
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon salt
Red bell pepper
Mix the dried fresh or dill, garlic powder, and salt into the softened cream cheese.
Pack the mixture into a rectangular container lined with plastic wrap (you can reuse the cream cheese box).
Refrigerate it for at least 3 hours. Before serving time, set the unwrapped block of cheese on a platter and decorate it with a scallion bow and red pepper polka dots and gift tag.
This only serves a few hungry snackers so I would say to double it or make several.
