Size Wise

Since this seasonal spread makes 28 servings, it's great to serve at a special occasion, such as a family party.

Special Extra

Top this festive tree-shaped holiday spread with a red pepper star. Just cut a piece of red pepper into a star shape using a 1-1/2-inch star-shaped cookie cutter. Or, cut the star from a KRAFT Singles.


Substitute prepared guacamole for the chopped avocados. Use a small spoon to make the garland with the guacamole. Or, spoon guacamole into a small reasealable plastic bag. Cut a small piece from 1 bottom corner of bag and use to pipe the guacamole onto the cheese spread.

Food Facts

Ripe avocados will turn brown on standing. To help prevent them from darkening, toss them with fresh lemon juice before draining and using as directed.
