Recipe by Debloves2cook

A tasty twist on a favorite appetizer. Enjoy! For easiest preparation, spread the cream cheese mixture in the celery first, then slice into 2-inch pieces.

As the 3 stars say, WE LIKED THESE. I couldn't find sunflower seeds so I used pine nuts on all of them. It seemed like they were missing something and it could be because I used regular cream cheese rather than the optional cream cheese with sun-dried tomatoes. I added a pinch of kosher salt and that perked them quite a bit. I will make this again and play with some other spices like Italian Seasoning. Thank you for posting Deb!
