These adorable little bats are almost…too cute to eat! The cheese balls are mild and kids just love them, have a bowl of extra chips for the cheese balls close by.

These Garlic and Herb Cheese Ball Halloween Bats are part of my Haunted Mansion Halloween Table featured on Hostess with the Mostess!

Yield: 12-14 bats

Garlic and Herb Cheese Ball Halloween Bats

Garlic and Herb Cheese Ball Halloween Bats

Ingredients

  • 4 ounces (half package) cream cheese
  • 5- ounce package Boursin cheese (garlic & fine herbs)
  • 1 cup monterey jack cheese, shredded
  • 4 tablespoons poppy seeds
  • 8-10 black olives, pitted and sliced
  • small jar pimentos (or red peppercorns) for eyes
  • small bag dark blue tortilla chips

Instructions

  1. Mix all of the cheeses together in a small bowl. Form into small to medium sized balls (about 1" rounds) and roll the ball in the poppy seeds.
  2. Push olive slices into the cheese balls for eyes and use the rings as the bat’s eyes with the pimentos or red peppercorns inside the olive for the red part of the eye. If you are having a hard time getting the eyes to stick, use a little cream cheese on the backside of the olive.
  3. Place a tortilla chip on each side of the cheese ball to give the bat it’s wings (if chip is too big, you can break part of it off to the shape you want) and then put in the refrigerator to chill.
