  • 2 8oz packages Neufchafel cream cheese, softened
  • 1 stick unsalted butter softened
  • 2 bunches green onions chopped
  • 1 4oz can chopped black olives


For the Scallion Olive Party Dip

  • Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl. Using an electric mixer makes this easy.
  • If making just the dip and not a cheese wreath, transfer party dip to a serving bowl. Chill in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours before serving with crackers.

For the Christmas Cheese Wreath

  • Put a drinking glass in the center of a serving plate.
  • Drop spoonfuls of Scallion Olive Party Dip around the glass (using 2 spoons helps, similar to dropping spoonfuls of cookie dough on a bake sheet).
  • Gently twist and remove the glass. Use a rubber spatula to smooth out and form the cheese ring. Use a paper towel to remove smudges and clean up the edges around the cheese ring.
  • Use a sharp paring knife to cut shapes cut from the bell peppers to make holly berries and leaves.
