Preparation

  1. In a medium bowl, combine the cream cheese, spinach, mozzarella, salt, pepper, and garlic powder, stirring until thoroughly mixed.
  2. Transfer the mixture to a square baking pan lined with parchment paper and spread the mixture evenly in the dish.
  3. Freeze for 30 minutes.
  4. Invert the frozen spinach dip onto a cutting board and remove the parchment paper.
  5. Slice the block into 1-centimeter strips, then slice the strips in half into sticks.
