Christmas Tree Cheesy Bread


Gooood morning loves and merry (almost) Christmas!! Today I have a super fun (and easy!!) recipe for you that’s PERFECT for an appetizer tonight or before your Christmas dinner tomorrow … it’s Christmas Tree Bread!! And how freakin CUTE is it?! It’s funny, a few days ago I actually had this recipe on my mind and then all of a sudden while scrolling through Instagram it popped up on Erin Ireland’s page, it was meant to be!! LOL!! So, I decided to whip it up while the girls were here for a photoshoot and share the recipe with you!! My version of this Christmas Tree bread involves lots of garlic and vegan margarine … I mean … it’s Christmas after all, right?!
