As you know, my favorite part about any holiday (after the meaningful stuff like family and togetherness, etc.) is the food. Actually, my favorite part of any given day just might be the food, but hey, to each her own. The Christmas season is especially fun because there are all sorts of opportunities for delicious little snacks that you generally don’t eat all year long. I mean, we’ve already gone through more cheeseballs in the past three weeks than we do for the entire rest of the year, and don’t even get me started on Lil’ Smokies! Anyway, I wanted to make a festive, but still easy, holiday snack you could take to any party, so I came up with these Christmas tree spinach dip breadsticks.

INGREDIENTS

    • 12 oz Frozen chopped spinach thawed and squeezed dry
    • 6 oz cream cheese softened
    • 2 cloves garlic, minced
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
    • 1/4 teaspoon chili powder
    • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
    • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
    • 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
    • 1 cup grated cheddar OR mozzarella cheese
