flavored or plain pita folds or pta(pocket) breads(about 6-inches in diameter)
thin pretzel sticks, halved
1/2 c
dairy sour cream
1/2 c
2 Tbsp
finely chopped parsley
1/4 tsp
garlic-pepper blend
1/4 c
very finely chopped red bell pepper


1Cut each pita fold into 8 wedges. Insert pretzel stick half into center of bottom of each wedge to form "tree trunk".
2In small bowl, mix sour cream, guacamole, parsley and garlic-pepper blend. Spread about 1 teaspoon sour cream mixture on each pita wedge.(you might need to put a small amount of the mixture on the inside to hold it together-like a glue.)
3Blot bell pepper with paper towel to remove excess moisture. Sprinkle about 1/4 teaspoon bell pepper on each wedge or arrange to form a garland. If desired, cover and refrigerate up to 8 hours before serving.
