Halloween is just a couple of weeks away, and that means that your children’s church kids will be gorging on candy. To give them some variety, here is a cheese ball in the shape of a jack-o-lantern that can be served with the healthy crackers of your choice, as found on the Kelloggs.com recipe site:
– 1 container (16 oz.) cold pack Cheddar cheese spread
– Pitted black olives
– Red bell pepper
Shape the cheese spread into ball. Place on a serving plate. Insert a stick of celery in top for the pumpkin stem. Position two olive slices for its eyes. Cut small pieces of red pepper and place them inside the olive slices for the eye pupils. Cut a triangle from the red pepper and place on the cheese for the nose. Lengthwise slice some olives and place them on the cheese for the mouth.
Serve on a round platter, surrounded with crackers.
