I've Got An Eye On You-Spooky Cheese Eyeball

As we all know, Halloween is just around the corner. I don't know about you but I am SUPER excited!!! Since the move into our new neighbourhood, I seem to be extra excited this year. In our old home we had a grand total of 6 kids ring our bell and this year, that will not be the case. I can guesstimate that we will have some where around the 200 mark for kidlets and I just can't wait!!

Our old neigbourhood was so snore bore that we actually drove our kidlets to a different neighbourhood to trick or treat. Are you allowed to do that? Hope so ;)

Anyhoo, although the neighbourhood was not into the festivities, we sure were. Last year I had big plans to make this cute little Frankenstein Cheeseball for my little guys class party, but I got sick and couldn't convince myself to give up extra "get well" sleep was in no shape to make him. Soo, plan B. I had all the ingredients for a  regular ol' cheeseball, but that's not very fun or spooky. What to do, what to do? Concoct a BIG BLOODY EYEBALL!

This sucker was super easy to make and delish as well. I used the same recipe from the Frankenstein Cheese ball above, minus all the decorative parts. I made the mixture and rolled it up into a ball inside some saran wrap and placed in the fridge over night. In the morning I placed the ball in a bowl and halved a colossal olive, placed it in the center and then drizzled red food colouring from the olive down the ball. It's a little hard to see here but the food colouring really bleed into the nooks and crannies of the cheese ball and looked like the nerves. I placed the ball on a dish with blue/black corn chips, pretzel twists and crackers. Added some tomb stones and pumpkin carving knives as the cheese spreaders. That's it! Super simple and super easy!! I have more Halloween goodies to come, so poke back next week ;)
