Ingredients

  • 1 pkg. (8 oz.) PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese
  • 1 fully ripe avocado
  • 1 Tbsp. KRAFT Real Mayo Mayonnaise
  • 1 tsp. lime juice
  • 1 jalapeño pepper
  • 8 grape tomatoes, halved
  • 1 green onion, thinly sliced
  • 80 RITZ Snowflake Crackers

Directions

Prep Time
15 minutes
  1. Cut block of cream cheese diagonally in half. Place triangles together on 12x10-inch piece of plastic wrap to resemble a tree. Cover with second 12x10-inch piece of plastic wrap. Press to flatten cream cheese tree into 7-inch-tall tree with 6-inch-wide base. Peel off top sheet of plastic wrap. Invert cream cheese tree onto serving plate; remove remaining plastic wrap.
  2. Mash avocado in medium bowl. Add mayo and lime juice; mix well. Spread over cream cheese.
  3. Cut 3 thin slices from pepper; place on top of tree. Seed and chop remaining pepper. Decorate tree with peppers, tomatoes and onions. Place 8 crackers, in 2 stacks of 4 each, at base of tree for the trunk. Serve with remaining crackers.
  4. Food Facts: 
Choose avocados with firm skin that yields to slight pressure when ripe. Once ripe, store in the refrigerator for 2 to 3 days. Avocados are rich in monounsaturated fat, making them a good substitute for foods with saturated fat.
  5. Substitute: 
Substitute original RITZ Crackers for the Snowflake Crackers.

Note: 
If cream cheese gets too soft when shaping it into the tree shape, place it, with plastic wrap, in refrigerator for 5 to 10 min. or until desired consistency.
