For our Halloween parties I don’t want to just serve slices or cubes of cheese; I like to dress my cheese up. Often I will just simply cut shapes out of cheese slices using a cookie cutter, but more recently I’ve been turning cheese balls into festive shapes and my guests love it.
My inspiration for these Mini Monster Cheese Balls actually came to me at Valentine’s Day, in a round about way. Last February I created Warm Fuzzy Cake Balls and while I was decorating them in red and pink colored coconut, I decided to see what they’d look like in orange and black for Halloween.
If you’d like to make the sweet cake ball monsters, just follow the instructions for the Warm Fuzzy Cake Balls (go here) or the Coconut Chicks (here) and use orange and black food coloring to color your coconut. Add candy eyes and create other decorations like feet and antennae out of colored candy melts or white chocolate.
