I've NEVER been able to bring any of this back home when I take it to work or church or any other function. It's so easy to make. You can do part of it the day before and really simplify things. I always make a double batch. Hope you enjoy it as much as my family, friends and co-workers do.
1OPEN CROISSANTS AND SPREAD OUT FLAT ON A “PAMMED” COOKIE SHEET. PINCH SEAMS TOGETHER AND BAKE ACCORDING TO DIRECTIONS UNTIL GOLDEN BROWN. ALLOW TO COOL. MEANWHILE; ADD THE SPLENDA TO THE CREAM CHEESE AND MIX THOROUGHLY. THIS CAN BE DONE THE NIGHT BEFORE!! JUST COVER THE CROISSANT CRUST WITH SARAN WRAP.
SPREAD THE CREAM CHEESE ‘SAUCE’ OVER THE ENTIRE ‘CRUST’ AND THEN ADD ABOUT 5 OF THE FOLLOWING…(WHICH YOU CAN ALSO CUT, SLICE, PEEL, WHATEVER, AND REFRIGERATE THE EVENING BEFORE)
RED GRAPES (HALVED)
GREEN GRAPES (HALVED)
LITTLE GREEN ONIONS, BROCCOLI FLORETS, THIN SLICED BABY CARROTS, CALIFLOWER FLORETS, BLACK OLIVE SLICES, GREEN OLIVE SLICES, WATER CHESTNUT SLICES, FINELY CHOPPED PEPPERS, SLICED OR DICED GRAPE TOMATOES…SPRINKLE WITH SEASONED SALT & A BLEND OF SHREDDED CHEESE.
REFRIDGERATE THE LEFTOVERS! (IF THERE ARE ANY)
4You can arrange the fruit in a distinct pattern. I've done crosses and houses in strawberries and made the sun out of mandarin oranges and so on. Let your creative side out!!
