Christmas Tree Dip
Very simple and easy Christmas tree dip.
- 1 Block Philadelphia Cream Cheese
- 1 Small thin piece of celery, 4cm long
- Garlic salt
- Pear Sauce (refer to recipe)
- Fresh chives
- small sprig of parsley
||Cut the cream cheese block diagonally across to make two triangles. Place the triangles on a platter so that they form a tree shape. Smooth over the join with your finger or a palette knife. Push the celery into the bottom to make the tree trunk. |
||Sprinkle a bit of garlic salt over the cheese then pour over the pear sauce. Sprinkle with chives to garnish and place a small sprig of parsley at the top. |
||Serve with your favourite crackers and celery sticks. |

Thank you to Rona from Domestic Diva for this recipe.
Variations: I was very unprepared when I made this recipe last year, I had no garlic salt, chives or parsley. I used a bit of sea salt instead of the garlic, pear and vegetable sauce instead of pear sauce and no garnishes - it still tasted great. You could certainly experiment with any other savoury toppings your family can have.
