    Rita~'s Note:

    The Cutest Halloween cheese ball! Cheese ball shaped into mouse/rat for your cheese platters. You can use your favorite cheese ball recipe and go ahead and use almonds for ears or whatever you have on hand. Bloody Guts is a fun when you cut into the cheese you find a sweet spicy hot gooey center.
