Ingredients

  • 1 cup Honey Bunches of Oats Cereal, crushed
  • 1 pkg. (8 oz.) cream cheese, softened
  • 12 kumquats, cut in half
  • 3 kiwis, peeled, sliced
  • 1 pt. (2 cups) raspberries
  • 1 pineapple, quartered, sliced
  • 1 pomegranate, seeded
  • 1 pkg. (8 oz.) cheddar cheese, sliced or cubed
  • 80 crackers

Directions

  1. Crush cereal in a resealable plastic bag; empty onto large plate. Shape cream cheese on a piece of plastic wrap into a log, using the plastic wrap to help shape the log. Roll cream cheese in the cereal until evenly coated.
  2. Place cream cheese log on serving platter. Surround with fruit; sprinkle with pomegranate seeds.
  3. Serve with cheddar cheese and crackers.

Tips and Suggestions

Substitute: Prepare as directed, using Neufchatel cheese, low-fat cheddar cheese and low-fat crackers.

Cooking Know-How: After shaping the cream cheese into the log, wrap in plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator to firm up slightly. This will make it easier to roll in the cereal and to slice for serving. Roll in the crushed cereal just before serving.

Best of Season: Prepare this colorful platter any time of year, using your favorite seasonal fruits.
