Holiday Tree Pretzel Cheese Log

Ingredients
A log of soft, spreadable cheese, such as goat cheese
Pretzel Crisps® Minis
Optional: yellow bell pepper

Remove cheese from packaging and allow to soften enough to mold. Use a knife to sculpt tree into a pointed, cone shape. Using Pretzel Crisp Minis®, begin by sticking a layer around the bottom of the cheese sphere. Continue to press in Pretzel Crisps®, one layer at a time, pushing them in further and further to create an angled look like that of a tree.

You may need to cut or break Pretzel Crisps® in half or smaller pieces as you reach the top. Once covered in Pretzel Crisps®, you can use a mini star-shaped cookie cutter to punch a star out of a yellow bell pepper. Adhere to the top with soft cheese.

Lightly drape with plastic wrap and refrigerate until ready to serve. You may need to remove from fridge in advance depending on hardness of spreadable cheese.
