Okay, I made these for a tea party that we held at our school for the graduating senior girls and their moms. They were a great success and are extremely easy and diverse.

pinch tips: How to Cut Cherry Tomatoes





40 Min


No-Cook or Other


12 celery stalks, cleaned, cut into portions
1/2 lb crispy cooked bacon, drained and crumbled
8 oz reduced fat cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup glazed walnuts, chopped
1/2 cup craisins, chopped
2 green onions, finely chopped
2 tablespoons heavy cream
1 teaspoon garlic powder

Directions Step-By-Step

Cook bacon (crispy), drain on paper towels. Chop walnuts, Craisins, and green onion. In a small bowl, combine: Cream cheese, bacon, walnuts, Craisins, green onion, heavy cream, and garlic powder. Stir until mixed well. Refrigerate for 30-60 minutes (to combine flavors).
Clean celery and cut into desired portion size.
Stuffing Celery: Carefully spread cream cheese mixture into each portion of celery. I personally use a piping bag with a LARGE tip. You can do the same with a Ziploc bag with a large hole cut in a corner.
Refrigerate until time to serve, keep chilled.
