FANTASTIC! This not only was tasty, it was easy to do, very colorful, and enjoyed by all. I followed the recipe exactly and used a #32 tip to fill. Thank you Sherilyn for sharing!

My family and I have been making this wonderful easy appetizer for many years now sans the garlic but will try with it next time. What's great is most of us always have these ingredients on hand. Great in a pinch.

It’s not often you come across appetizer recipes that aren’t either laden with carbohydrates or drenched in fat from deep-frying. Sure, the mixture in this recipe would be well-suited as a spread for crackers but its appeal for me was that it wasn’t a spread for crackers. This was packed with flavor and the crackers hardly missed. The fresh garlic, I believe, is critical, although I’d consider cutting back on it a bit. I made one package of cream cheese as the recipe directed. I experimented with the other, using black olives rather than the green, and added finely chopped, multi-colored bell peppers and just a pinch of seasoning salt. Both variations were very good, and both were attractive with their specks of color. I took the cue from Shorecook and piped the mixture into the celery with a large open star tip. This is a very versatile recipe, with endless possibilities for different seasonings or add-ins.

We have used this cream cheese mix on crackers for years and has always been a hit. You can cheat a little and use a tsp of garlic powder.

Since before I was born my family has done this for holidays and special occasions! I've never added garlic or pepper-- I'll have to try it sometime! The green olive/cream cheese mix is also FABULOUS for topping a toasted bagel! :)

Very good and very easy. I used tofu cream cheese (for the DH lactose issues) and a olive stuffed with galic and a few pimentos in the jar. I let it sit for about 8 hours. Very tasty and 5+s stars for ease!! Thanks for sharing

Very simple and tasty. I used it as a dip for crackers instead of the celery.

Well I wish we could say we liked this as I don't like rating recipes low. However 3 of us tried it and no one cared for it. I used the change servings option and made only 4 servings so it wasn't a huge waste. I just have a small container of the cream cheese mixture leftover. I thought the mixture looked festive with the red and green pieces. I didn't expect that from the main picture. I would consider this more of a holiday appetizer. However I ended up using a block of lite cream cheese and didn't care for it before even adding the other ingredients. So that may have not helped. I normally buy regular cream cheese or regular whipped style. The lite had a really off taste. The other 2 that tried the recipe couldn't get past the olive taste which didn't seem to bother me at all. I can see olive and garlic lovers possibly really liking the combination though. Just didn't work for us as a snack idea I guess.
