Halloween has got to be one of my favorite holidays. It’s fun, creative, and it doesn’t require cooking a feast and inviting all the relatives over for dinner. All I have to do is dress up with my favorite costume, put together some delicious fingers foods and appetizers and wait until my kids get distracted so I steal some of their trick or treat candy. What’s not to love? All the food is creative and fun, perfect for kids and adults alike. Just like this adorable Frankenstein avocado cheese dip. It’s all the rage around here! Since it requires absolutely no cooking, you can make it with your kids and have them decorate it in their own unique way. My daughters helped me out during the whole process. They added crazy hair, eyes, and the pretzel bolts to the sides. Frankie is not only a little spooky, but he’s delicious too. Made with Cacique Manchego cheese, which gives it a creamy yet distinctive flavor, it will have you wanting more. Hope you enjoy Frankie and Happy Halloween!
WHAT YOU NEED
- 8-ounce cream cheese, softened
- 2 cups Cacique Manchego cheese, grated
- 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
- 1 tablespoon multi-grain mustard
- ½ teaspoon onion powder
- ½ teaspoon garlic powder
- ½ teaspoon cumin
- Salt & pepper to taste
- 2 pretzel sticks
- 10-12 Pitted Black Olives, sliced
- 1 cup prepared guacamole
HOW TO MAKE IT
- In a bowl, place the cream cheese, 1 cup of Cacique Manchego cheese, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, garlic powder, onion powder, and salt and pepper. Mix well with a spoon or spatula until combined.
- Place mixture in a plastic lined loaf pan. With your hands, shape the cheese into a rectangle. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
- Remove from the fridge and place the cheese on a platter. With a small spatula spread the guacamole over the cheese. Using extra guacamole, make the nose. For the eyes, I cut a semicircle of Cacique Manchego cheese and place a piece of olive over it. The mouth and hair are olive pieces. Attach a pretzel rod on each side of the head with an olive at the end.
