.Cream Cheese Draculas.

Cream Cheese Draculas Halloween Finger Food Recipe

Makes about 15-25 little draculas - the exact number will depend on how big you make them.

1 (8 oz) pkg. cream cheese, chilled
10 (or more) pitted black olives
1 jar pimentos or roasted red peppers

1. Trim pieces of pimento or roasted red pepper into tiny bloody fangs (as pictured).

2. Cut each black olive in half lenghtwise. Chop another 2-3 black olives into small pieces for use as eyes (green olives also work well for the eyes).

3. Roll a small amount of cream cheese between your palms to make a small oblong ball.

4. Decorate each cheese ball with black olive hair-- the placement of the olive should create a deep widow's peak hairline.

5. Add two small pieces of black olives for eyes. Add your pimento or red pepper "fangs".

* If your cheese is very firm, you may have to let it soften a bit before olives and pimentos will stick.
* You can make these to decorate a cheese tray, or on a platter with a bowl of smooth picante or hot sauce with chips, or they can be set out on their own for your Halloween party guests to snack on.
* You can also make these with soft goat cheese or any herbed or flavored cheese of your choice. The cheese simply needs to be soft enough to mold, but firm enough to hold its shape.
