Fun Food For Halloween

Looking for some fun themed food for Halloween? Here are a few items to try…

You could eat these “bones” as part of an appetizer buffet or a side item with dinner. Just start with refrigerated bread stick dough and parmesan cheese.
The “pumpkin” cheese ball recipe is very good served with crackers. It uses the thick stem from a head of broccoli for the  “stem”.
“Pumpkin” Cheese Ball via Southern Living
  • 2 (8-ounce) blocks extra-sharp Cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • 1 (8-ounce) container chive-and-onion cream cheese
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground red pepper
  • 1 broccoli stalk
  • Red and green apple wedges

Combine Cheddar cheese and next 4 ingredients in a bowl until blended. Cover and chill 4 hours or until mixture is firm enough to be shaped.

Shape mixture into a ball to resemble a pumpkin. Smooth entire outer surface with a frosting spatula or table knife. Make vertical grooves in ball, if desired, using fingertips.

Cut florets from broccoli stalk, and reserve for another use. Cut stalk to resemble a pumpkin stem, and press into top of cheese ball. Serve cheese ball with apple wedges.

Note: To make ahead, wrap cheese ball in plastic wrap without stalk, and store in refrigerator up to 2 days. Attach stalk before serving
