Holiday Appetizer: Christmas Tree Wrap

Holiday Appetizer: Christmas Tree Wrap

 

If you spend as much time in the kitchen as I do over the holidays, you are busy cutting and prepping meals, holiday appetizers and desserts. Keeping your cutting boards clean is so important on so many levels.

From keeping smells isolated to killing Salmonella are all reasons that when you are making Christmas Appetizers to use Clorox® Disinfecting Wipes with Micro-Scrubbers.

These adorable Christmas Tree Wraps are so fun to have at a party but can be messy on a cutting board.

How to Make Holiday Appetizer: Christmas Tree Wrap

First, make your cream cheese filling. This is so flavorful with bits of cream cheese, olives, basil, parmesan cheese, and roasted red peppers.

Spread it on Green Tortilla wraps. If you desire you can heat them over an open fire to get the raw taste away, but I thought they were perfect straight out of the package.

Roll very tightly. Trust me on this, I had one that was loosely rolled and they were not as cut when they were cut. Wrap them tightly with plastic wrap, maintaining the triangle shape.

Shape them into triangles and put in your fridge for up to 24 hours.

Cut the roll into 1/2 inch pieces.
