Belated Halloween

Hill’s costume

Hills had a Halloween party one weekend, and she made a jellyfish costume out of an umbrella, ribbons and fairy lights. I also helped her make a snack to bring to the party.

Cheeseball bats

Little bats made out of cheese balls. We got the recipe off here: LINK And changed it a little.

Here’s what you need:

2 package cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup pesto
2 tablespoons coarsely ground black pepper
8 pitted olives, sliced
32 triangular corn chips

Here’s how we did it:

  1. Mash cream cheese and pesto together. Cover mixture with cling film and chill for 30 minutes.
  2. Shape mixture into small balls, about a heaping teaspoonful of mixture each. Roll it in black pepper to cover. Press 2 sliced olives into it to make eyes.
  3. Insert 2 corn chips into sides to make wings.

We used Dorito corn chips, which were too big, so we broke the corn chips into 3 pieces to make smaller wings.
