And I think it will do the same for you. Every year I like to make some sort of wreath-like creation. One year I did a Cheesy Chicken Wreath, and another year it was a Spinach Dip Wreath, but this year we are all about the cheese, cream cheese, and bacon! In fact, I do my holiday shopping at Walmart and found the most delicious recipe ever, using Philadelphia® Cream Cheese, Kraft® Shredded Cheese, and Oscar Mayer® Bacon. This one is a true party favorite, and also, stay tuned because you’ll want to enter the #ShareTheHolidaySweepstakes.
