2 packages (8 ounces each) cream cheese, softened
1 package (2-1/2 ounces) thinly sliced dried beef, chopped
1/2 cup minced fresh parsley
1/4 cup chopped green onions
1 carton (8 ounces) spreadable cream cheese
2 fresh rosemary sprigs
5 dried cranberries, divided
2 pretzel sticks
1 small pitted ripe olives
1 small carrot
1 green onion
Assorted crackers

In a mixing bowl, combine the first four ingredients; mix well. Shape into three balls, one 3-1/2 in., one 3 in and one 2-1/2 in.

Place the 3-1/2-in. ball on an 8-in. serving plate; top with the 3-in. ball, then the small ball. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

With a knife, smooth spreadable cream cheese over each ball; spread remaining cheese around

base of snowman.

Arrange rosemary sprigs on snowman's head, forming a wreath. Place three dried cranberries inside wreath.

Insert pretzel sticks for arms. Cut two thin slices from olive and make two 1/8-in. circles. Place circles on head for eyes and slices on body for buttons.

Cut one cranberry in half widthwise; place in the center of olive buttons. Cut remaining cranberry in half lengthwise; shape one piece into a smile and place on snowman's face (discard remaining cranberry half).

Trim carrot to make a small nose; position on face. Cut top of green onion into a 1/4-in. strip; tie around neck for scarf. Serve with crackers.
