Halloween Goodies

I think Halloween is definitely one of my favorite times of the year….love the cool autumn air and the beautiful fall foliage

My daughter, Jenny, and I have been making what we call “Bugs” for years.  As a matter of fact, it is now an annual tradition.  This year I found another cute food item on the internet and decided to give it my own twist.

Here are our now two favorite Halloween Goodies!  Hope you enjoy them as much as we do.  They are a little time consuming to make, but great fun and great bonding with your family members…right up there with carving pumpkins.

Ingredients need for Monster Cheese Balls….

Monster Cheese Balls

Combine 4 ounces of goat cheese (I used sun dried tomato flavored), 8 ounces of softened cream cheese, and 1 teaspoon of chives in a mixing bowl or bowl of a food processor, and combine until smooth.  Using a small scoop, scoop cheese mixture, roll into shredded cheese until covered.  Cut black olives thinly and then in half for mouths.  Place mouth on cheese ball.  Place a dab of black icing on the back of the “eye-ball” and stick to pretzel stick (cut pretzel in half).  Insert into cheese ball.
