  • Per Bookworm:
  • 1 slice orange cheese
  • 1 slice white cheese
  • 2 jumbo black olives
  • 7 Farm Rich Mozzarella Bites
  • marinara sauce for dipping
  1. Cut one slice of orange cheese into a book.
  2. Use the back of a knife to score the book to create the illusion of a spine.
  3. Cut two long thin strips from the white cheese slice.
  4. Set one strip of white cheese across the cheese book about 1/4 inch from the top edge.
  5. Set the other strip near the bottom edge.
  6. Cut 2 small circles out of the white cheese, for the eyes.
  7. Cut 1 slice off the edge of an olive and cut that into two very small circles for the pupils.
  8. Cut two slices from the middle of the olive.
  9. Use a round cutter to cut the centers of the slices out creating the rims of the bookworm's glasses.
  10. Cut another slice from the olive and cut it in half. Half will become the smile. Cut the other piece in half to form the nose piece of the glasses.
  11. Heat the Farm Rich Mozzarella Bites according to package instructions.
  12. Arrange 6 of the Mozzarella Bites on a plate forming a worm.
  13. Cut one thin slice off the remaining Mozzarella Bite, then cut two small half moon shapes out for the worm's hands.
  14. Arrange the olive glasses, cheese eyes, and olive smile on the top Mozzarella Bite (head.)
  15. Set the book between the two Mozzarella Bites that are just below the head.
  16. Set one hand on either side of the cheese book.
  17. Heat the marinara sauce and serve on the side.
