Ingredients:

For the Spinach Dip:

  • 1 cup frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained
  • 1 cup cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional for a hint of spice)

For the Breadsticks:

  • 1 package refrigerated pizza dough
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried parsley flakes

Instructions:

Making the Spinach Dip:

  1. In a mixing bowl, combine the thawed and drained chopped spinach, softened cream cheese, sour cream, grated Parmesan cheese, mayonnaise, minced garlic, salt, black pepper, and red pepper flakes (if using).
  2. Mix all the ingredients until well combined, and the spinach dip is creamy and smooth. Set it aside.

Shaping the Christmas Tree:

  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. Roll out the refrigerated pizza dough on a clean surface to form a large rectangle.
  3. Using a knife or a pizza cutter, cut the dough into a Christmas tree shape. To do this, cut out a triangle for the tree and a rectangle for the trunk. Make sure to leave some extra dough on top of the triangle for the tree’s branches.
  4. Transfer the Christmas tree-shaped dough to a parchment-lined baking sheet.

Assembling the Christmas Tree:

  1. Spread the prepared spinach dip evenly over the Christmas tree-shaped dough, leaving a small border around the edges.
  2. Fold the extra dough over the spinach dip to create the branches of the tree. Press the edges to seal.

Baking and Finishing Touches:

  1. Bake in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes or until the breadsticks are golden brown and the spinach dip is bubbly.
  2. While the Christmas tree is baking, prepare the topping by mixing melted butter, grated Parmesan cheese, garlic powder, and dried parsley flakes in a small bowl.
  3. When the Christmas tree is out of the oven, brush the butter mixture over the breadsticks to add flavor and shine.
  4. Serve your Christmas Tree Spinach Dip Breadsticks warm and enjoy!

This festive appetizer is not only delicious but also visually appealing, making it the perfect addition to your holiday gatherings. Your family and friends will love dipping the warm breadsticks into the creamy spinach dip as they celebrate the season together.
