Rated 4 out of 5 by from This was a cute recipe and easy to make. This was a cute recipe and easy to make. I left the cream cheese out to soften and that worked very well. I used my standing mixer to mix and it was quick and easy. I did add about 1 cup of sour cream to make it creamier (per another commenter's suggestion) and I added both salsa (1/2 cup) and about 1/2 t of garlic. This added some extra flavor to this recipe. My guests enjoyed this appetizer and especially the presentation. It travels well (when kept cold) and is easy to fix if there is a problem on the road :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This made for a very tasty and pretty holiday presentation! This made for a very tasty and pretty holiday presentation! I considered not bothering with the olives but so glad I did. Using a small can of the finely chopped olives gives the spread a great texture - most people would not realize they were eating black olives. Also, I added 1/2 cup of sour cream and 1/2 tsp. garlic powder.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from It tastes good, but needs something added to the cheese to make it creamier. It tastes good, but needs something added to the cheese to make it creamier. It was extremely difficult to spread, both to form the wreath, and to eat. Since I already bought ingredients for three to take to holiday parties, I will try adding sour cream when I make it again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty presentation for guests. Pretty presentation for guests. I added salsa to the cream cheese. Also added some onions. Will make it next time & add a little garlic. If you think ahead leave the cream cheese out for at least 1 hr to soften.
