Christmas appetizers

These were fun to make!

I used cookie cutters to cut out the trees and bells from bread slices, then spread the cheese mixture on top. I added some pepper strips for decoration and then broiled them.

They were delicious. Warm and cheesy with a bit of bite from the peppers, they were a hit!

Cheesy Christmas Trees

1 Tbsp. dry ranch dressing mix
1 c.shredded cheddar cheese
1/4 c. grated Parmesan cheese
12 slices firm white bread
1/4 c. red bell pepper strips
1/4 c. green bell pepper strips

Cut shapes from bread. Combine the cheeses, dry ranch, and mayo and spread on the bread. Decorate with pepper strips and broil  2-3 minutes or until bubbly. Serve warm.
