Halloween Cheese Ball
The base cheese ball for many creative halloween shapes including witch hats and cauldrons.
- 16 oz cream cheese
- 1 cup cheddar cheese grated
- 2 scallions sliced
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1-2 dashes hot sauce
- 2-3 slices crumbled bacon optional
To make cauldron:
Roll ⅔ of cream cheese mixture into a ball. Coat in poppy seeds and set aside. Put remaining ⅓ cream cheese mixture into a piping bag. Pipe a round edge on top of the ball, forming the top of the cauldron. Coat rim in poppy seeds.
Add guacamole with pomegranate arils to resemble brewing potion.
Cut small pieces of bell peppers to make flames. Using the 1 tbsp of reserved cheese mixture, smear a little on each piece before sticking to the side of the caludron.
Break pretzel rods in half and form into a circle to resemble logs. Serve cauldron on top of pretzel rods and serve with crackers!
