What were these cheesy cheese spread recipes all about? They were appetizers and snacks that creatively-shaped — into a wreath, a chicken (with a tail made out of Fritos corn chips) and a Christmas tree. Oh yeah, folks in the ’60s were eating these recipes up. Truly.
Holiday cheer — and how to spread it
Happiness is scooping into these groovy Hellmann’s holiday spreads.
To make them fancy like this, cut out simple basic cardboard shapes, cover with foil, mound spread to shape, and garnish. Plain or fancy, the secret of their success is Hellmann’s Real Mayonnaise. Light and delicate, creamy and smooth. The perfect party mixer.
