Cream cheese has to be the most versatile product on the market! Every time I think I’ve come up with a new use for it, someone else does too!
The following appetizer / snacks recipe is kid friendly and not only delicious, but somewhat healthy. Quite cost effective ( if you purchase the packaged cream cheese versus the tub ) and use celery instead of pecans!
Not just great for parties, these little snacks are wonderful to keep on hand during the week as an afternoon snack.
Give them a try!
