Halloween Appetizers: You'll Go Batty for These Mini Pistachio Cheese Ball Bats!

Mini pistachio cheese balls take flight when they get tortilla chip wings. These bat appetizers are sure to become a Halloween tradition – and you won't mind because they are so easy to make. 

You'll need:

  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened  
  • 1 cup grated Cheddar cheese
  • dash of Worcestershire sauce
  • black pepper, to taste
  • 1/2 cup crushed pistachios
  • black olives
  • blue tortilla chips

Here’s how to make them:

  1. Combine the cream cheese, Cheddar cheese, Worcestershire and pepper, to taste, in a bowl. Mix well.
  2. Roll the mixture into small balls.
  3. Roll the mini cheese balls into the crushed pistachios.
  4. Press two pieces of black olive into the cheese balls for the eyes.
  5. Place on a serving try and insert pieces of blue tortilla chips into the sides for “wings” and top for "ears." Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Note: If you want your bats to have white centers in their eyes, just fill with a tiny bit of cream cheese.
