  • 1 Lb. Colby Jack Cheese
  • 1 Lb. Pepper Jack Cheese
  • 1 Lb. Sharp Cheddar Cheese
  • 1 Lb. Green Seedless Grapes
  • 6 Strawberries
  • 1 Star Fruit
  • 1 Package of Rectangle Shaped Water Crackers


  • Rinse grapes and strawberries under cold water and pat dry with a paper towel.
  • Cut all cheese into small 1” blocks (bite size).
  • Cut strawberries and star fruit in half.
  • It helps to think you are building a long triangle. If needed create an outline with some grapes and remove them as you go.
  • To build the tree, start with the bottom and work your way up.
  • Put a cracker where the trunk of your tree belongs.
  • Place the star fruit at the top for a guide.
  • Place the grapes for your first bottom layer.
  • Place a row of cheese right above it but make 1” smaller on either side. When adding the cheese layers make each one a different cheese (preferably a different color if you have it.
  • Continue to interchange the cheeses and grapes for each layer
  • The top of your last layer will be the strawberries, just below the star fruit for the tree topper.
  • Place crackers at the corners of your dish.
