I have lots of fun with this festive appetizer wreath. I often place a bowl of stuffed olives in the center. —Shirley Privratsky, Dickinson, North Dakota

"I've made this for many Christmas's and for a wedding rehearsal dinner that was held the day after Christmas. Looks and tastes great!"

"So I cut this recipe in half because it was just for my husband and I as an evening snack. We figured we would have some leftovers for another evening. Nope. Just the two of us ate all 8 of them. When I took the first bite I thought they were just OK. But after a few more bites I really thought they were amazing. The spread has a very light taste, not too heavy at all. We didn't put broccoli on top because we didn't have any but it still tasted great. I used a bit more garlic powder (suited to our tastes). We also used a yellow sweet pepper instead of red. I did find that it called for too much celery. I think we only used half of what it called for (even after halving it for the recipe). The topping made for a nice crunch and overall, tasted fresh. We definitely will be making this recipe again.

Lastly, as an FYI, you can now buy crescent "rounds", basically the same thing as this but already cut for you. I just had to pull them out of the canister :)"

"I enjoyed this recipe and everyone loved it. The only thing I would do different is to make the slices smaller (if possible as the dough is so sticky) or cut the cooked pieces in half (as you would cut a biscuit or roll length wise) and use it that way. There was too much bread. However, the raw veggies on top of the cream cheese mixture was very refreshing and complimented the bread."

"Took to a party and received many nice comments. I did cut the crescents into 16 slices and the amount of bread was still more than needed. I added 1 t. of dry ranch dressing and added some chopped mushrooms that I had on had then mixed all together so ingredients wouldn't fall off when served. Will make again!"

"I've made this several times over the past year. I use a tablespoon of ranch powder for extra flavor. I also cut each can into 16 slices, otherwise I feel the bread is too thick. I throw the leftover veggies in the leftover cream cheese mixture, adding a bit more sour cream to thin it out, and use as a cracker dip. I never bring any back home when taking it to a gathering. Yum!"

"I cut one can of the crescent rolls into 16 slices as previous reviewers recommended and shaped them into a Christmas tree just to fit on my serving platter. I also used Adobo seasoning in place of the garlic and used just broccoli and prepared bruschetta for the topping. Any extra creamy topping I used as a dip for veggies. Everyone at my family Christmas gathering said it was wonderful! I will def make this again."

"i was looking for a simple but great ideal to take to a family gathering,we decided to do finger food,when i came across this recipe which taste of homes is the only recipes i prefer ,i thought ,this looked really good. i tweaked the recipe just a bit to my liking. needless to say this appetizer recipe has become my favorite. i did add fresh dill herbs instead of the dill weed. just because the herb was cheaper than the can of dill. sadly i didn't have any left overs to bring home. the creamy texture and the herb was just perfect. i didn't add any garlic .im a big fan of garlic but not every one else is so i wanted to keep it toned down but instead i used an all purpose seasoning in its place. it was perfect.i would recommend this recipe to any party get together and it was so easy putting together.i did the round wreath and used a small bowl in the middle for the extra cream left over from the mixture after topping the cresent rolls . that way folks was able to add some to their plate as extra if they liked.big big hit...."

"I made this for a Christmas party I just hosted this past week. It turned out so pretty and so tasty. I did add a little garlic salt and sugar to my cream cheese mix just to give a little more taste. Other than that, I made it according to the directions. Easy, tasty, and pretty...that sums it up!"
