Halloween snack: little cheese devils
Ok, how cute do these look? They’re supposed to be monsters but I find them adorable little monsters… 🙂 As I am writing this the sun is shining brightly and for the time of year the weather is still pretty hot. For me the holiday season needs to be dark and gloomy. Snow preferably but if it doesn’t snow than I’m ok with rain and storm. I can be weird that way.. 😉 Of course end of October is a bit early for snow, at least in this part of the world so I’ll have to settle for the dark and gloomy part. So far it looks more like summer than autumn. Although they are predicting that it will be a really cold winter. I’m sure by the time it is january I’ll be wishing I had shut up about wanting cold and snow and all that.
These little cheese devils are super simple to make and have a very high ‘ahhhh’ level. They’re just so cute. And when you’re at it, make sure to save some extra cream cheese as it is delicious dipping the little snacks in the cream cheese.
- 200 gr cream cheese
- 1 bunch chives finely chopped
- few drops of tabasco or hot pepper sauce
- ¼ tsp chili powder
- ¼ tsp garlic powder
- ¼ tsp onion powder
- ½ tsp smoked paprika powder
- pepper and salt to taste
- 1 bag triangle shaped chips
- green olives with pit for the eyes
- piece of red paprika for the eyes and horns
Mix the cream cheese with the tabasco and spices in a bowl. Taste and add pepper and salt.
Get a flat plate and place that next to your creamcheese mixture. Sprinkle all the chopped chives on the plate
Take a bit of cream cheese and let it drop on the chives plate. Move it with the spoon through the chives. Once it is covered with enough chives you can roll it in your hands and make a small ball. Place on a clean plate.
Repeat until all cream cheese is gone (or save some to eat later)
Place the rolled devils in the fridge for at least 30 minutes to set. In the meantime cut the olives into slices
Cut a tiny round from the pepper that fits into the middle of the olives or Use a drop of ketchup as the eye.
Cut horns from the pepper and take the balls from the fridge. Push the eyes and horns in it's place. Take two of the chips and stick them into the sides. Serve directly or place in the fridge for later use.
