  3. Test Kitchen Tips
  4. This stylish appetizer is super adaptable. Any cheeses will work in place of the cream cheese and sharp cheddar. Just keep the overall weight the same.
  5. For more variety, fold thin slices of deli cuts such as pepperoni and salami in half and tuck them between the cheese slices.
