2 pkg. (8 oz. each) Cream Cheese, softened ( I use the Neufchatel Cheese)
3/4 cup chopped Pepperoni (I use the turkey pepperoni)
1/2 cup Grated Three Cheese Blend
1/4 cup chopped black olives
2 Tbsp. chopped fresh basil
6 Tbsp. chopped roasted red peppers, divided
1 Tbsp. chopped fresh parsley
Fresh basil leaves

MIX cream cheese, pepperoni, grated cheese blend, olives, chopped basil and 2 Tbsp. peppers until well blended. Shape into 16-inch log; wrap in plastic wrap.

REFRIGERATE 1 hour or until firm enough to handle. Form into wreath shape on large plate.

TOP with remaining peppers and parsley. Garnish with fresh basil leaves. Serve with crackers

Very festive, Mara! I am making up a recipe book for my daughter this Christmas with some recipes already logged in and will include this one for her.
She can do this one, no problemo!
