Creepy Eyeball Cheese Balls! {Easy Halloween Party Food}

Creepy Eyeball Cheese Balls!  A silly Halloween Snack or Appetizer that will have everyone creeped out!

It doesn’t seem possible, but we are nearing the end of October already!   Those little ones with all their cute Halloween costumes will be on our doorsteps soon!  We really don’t do a whole lot for Halloween, but I do like to wait for all the trick or treaters to come by so we can pass out candy.  I love seeing what creative costumes the kids have on!  I always keep a few snacks around so that we don’t eat all the candy ourselves.  This year, while we are waiting around to pass out candy, we will  have a little spooky fun with these Creepy Eyeball Cheese Balls!   These are made with California Ripe Olives and a Ranch Cheese Ball Mixture!

Creepy Eyeball Cheese Balls!  An Easy Appetizer or Halloween Snack Idea!

 You can serve them on crackers or chips.  Despite their spooky appearance these taste great!   I really like how the ranch kicks up the flavor and compliments the California Ripe Olives well.  When picking out olives I like to use California Ripe Olives.  They are the perfect pantry staple and California Ripe Olives provide a pop of color, texture, and flavor to a variety of dishes.  California Ripe Olives are also kid-friendly and the perfect option for creating tasty and creative food art for Halloween. We also use them for snacking right out of the can.   They are so delicious!!!  My girls and I may have snuck a few in our mouths before they made their way into the eyeballs.   😉

I have seen sweet, salty and sour eyeballs. It seems to me that I could eat a meal consisting of nothing but Halloween eyeball food. Even the drinks can have eyeballs swimming in them!
