Do you have any New Years Party that you need to bring along something good?  If so I have something yummy and easy to make.

Festive Cheese Spread


2 pkg Cream Cheese softened, (8 ounces per package)
1/4 cp Butter softened
2 tbsp McCormick® Chives
2 tbsp McCormick® Parsley Flakes
1 tsp McCormick® California Style Garlic Pepper with Red Bell and Black Pepper
1/2 tsp McCormick® Dill Weed
1/4 tsp McCormick® Thyme Leaves
1/2 Red Bell Pepper chopped, (about 1/2 cup)


Beat cream cheese and butter in large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed until smooth.

Add remaining ingredients except red bell pepper; beat well.

Place piece of plastic wrap on baking sheet. Spoon cheese mixture onto plastic wrap to form a candy cane shape, log or ball. Fold up plastic wrap over cheese to encase.

Refrigerate 4 hours or overnight or until cheese is firm.

Unwrap cheese mixture. Place on serving plate. Smooth entire shape with spatula or knife. Garnish with bell pepper. Serve with assorted crackers.
