It's almost time for one of the BEST holidays of the year - Halloween! I recently made this dark & spooky appetizer platter for a Kin Community "Tricks & Treats" playlist that was part of a collaboration with a few other You Tube channels. Please check out my video below (and the links to some of the other channels) on how to put together this creepy concoction...Enjoy and have a fun Halloween!
Black, or concord, grapes
Dark purple or black plums
Dark crackers or cocktail rye/pumpernickel bread
Black pepper cheese balls:
1 8 oz. package cream cheese, room temperature
1 1/2 c. sharp cheddar cheese - shredded
2 green onion - white & green finely chopped
1 T. dill - chopped
2 t. worcestershire sauce
Combine cream cheese, cheddar cheese, green onion, dill and worcestershire sauce in a bowl. Stir until thoroughly combined.
Divide cheese mixture into 4 sections. Roll each section into a ball with your hands. Roll in cracked black pepper until completely covered.
Warm dried figs stuffed with blue cheese:
Cut a small slit into dried black mission figs, creating a little pocket. Stuff with your favorite blue cheese. Place in an oven at 400 degrees for 5 minutes. Serve warm.
