Cheesy Christmas Tree

This very easy-to-make cheesy Christmas tree delight is the perfect addition to your next holiday party! Try using Philly Neufchatel Cheese for a lower fat option.

1 pkg. (8 oz.) PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese
1/2 cup pesto
1/4 cup chopped red peppers
1 stick KRAFT POLLY-O TWIST-UMS String Cheese
RITZ Crackers

CUT block of cream cheese diagonally in half. Arrange both halves, with points together, on serving plate to resemble Christmas-tree shape.

CUT a 2-inch piece from the string cheese. Place at bottom of tree for the trunk. Wrap up remaining cheese; refrigerate until ready to use for snacking or other use.

SPOON pesto over cream cheese; sprinkle with peppers. Serve as a spread with the crackers.
