Olive Cheese Pops Share Tags: appetizer I was feeling my way through the recipe on the video so make sure you follow the steps below and not necessarily the steps in the video! These cheese pops can also be made by patting half of the cheddar cheese mixture on the bottom of a 9x9 baking pan and layering with the beef cheese mixture and then placing sliced olives before layering on the second half of the cheddar cheese mixture.. After 15 minutes at 400 degrees, slice into squares. It's easier than rolling balls and just as good! My Olive Cheese Pops are a great game day snack or party treat. Prep time: 30 minutes | Cook time: 15 minutes | Total time: 45 minutes | Servings: 40 8 ounce(s) of Philadelphia Cream Cheese
3 ounce(s) of Dried Beef
3/4 cup(s) of Coarsly Chopped Unsalted Pecans
40 Green Olive Slices
2 cup(s) of Cheddar Cheese
1/2 cup(s) of Unsalted Butter
1 cup(s) of Flour
1/4 tsp. of Salt
1/2 tsp. of Paprika
Steps

Take approx. 1 tsp. of Beef/Cream Cheese mixture and 1 Olive Slice and wrap with a little less than a tbsp of Cheddar Cheese Dough.

After all balls are made and on cookie sheet, put in oven for approx. 15min.
