Ingredients










Cooking Instructions

1

Soak the floral cone in water for 10 minutes. Place on serving tray. Cover the base of the cone with a mix of bay leaves and rosemary sprigs, securing each by sticking the stem into the floral cone.


2

Cut half of the Antonella™ cheese into star shapes with a 1-inch star cookie cutter. Cut remaining Antonella™ and havarti into 1/2-inch square cubes. Drain mozzarella balls.


3

Thread cheeses, tomatoes and olives on toothpicks to create an assortment, adding 2 to 3 of each per toothpick. Rotate cheeses, tomatoes and olives near the frill top of each toothpick for variety. Place toothpicks into cone, ensuring the entire base is covered and a variety of picks on the tree. Tuck remaining bay leaves around the base of the cone. (Save any remaining herbs for a different dish.)


Recipe Tip:
Any brand of Wisconsin Antonella™ (or herbed cheese), havarti or fresh mozzarella balls can be used.

The more colorful the cheese is the prettier the tree will be. Choose cheeses with herb rinds and flavored cheeses for more color!
