I just about died when I saw this one!
Isn't he hysterical, don't you love it!?!
I got this cheese (head) spread from Taste of Home.
This is SO easy & your party guest or the kids will just love him!
This is what you will need:
2 packages (8 ounces each) cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
2 cups (8 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese
6 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled
3 green onions, thinly sliced
2 cartons (4 ounces each) whipped cream cheese
Moss-green paste food coloring
1 can (4-1/4 ounces) chopped ripe olives, drained
3 colossal ripe olives
2 slices peeled parsnip
Black decorating gel
1 pretzel rod
1 small cucumber
Assorted fresh vegetables
How to create your monster:
large bowl, beat the cream cheese, mayonnaise, Worcestershire sauce and
pepper sauce until smooth. Stir in the cheddar cheese, bacon and onions.
Shape into a 5-in. x 4-in. x 3-in. rectangle; wrap in plastic wrap.
Refrigerate until chilled.
Unwrap rectangle; place on a serving platter
with a 3-in. side on top. Tint whipped cream cheese green; spread over
top and sides of rectangle.
Add chopped ripe olives for hair and
peppercinis for ears. Cut one colossal olive in half; add parsnip
slices and olive halves for eyes. With black decorating gel, pipe the
brow, mouth and stitches.
Break pretzel rod in half; add a colossal olive
to each end. Press into sides of head for bolts. Cut a small piece from
end of cucumber for a nose (save remaining cucumber for another use).
Serve with vegetables or whatever you like to dip!
