I am of the opinion that Halloween is not only for kids and costume parties. I believe that it’s the perfect excuse to invite over your girlfriends (ghoul-friends in my case) to relax and chat with easy to create Halloween snacks and cocktails before the madness of trick or treating starts occurring. Scroll down for my super easy Ghoul’s Night Out Halloween Snacks.

Halloween Spider Cheeseball

 With a quick trip to Wal-Mart (seriously, y’all Wal-Mart has EVERYTHING) and some basic ingredients and craft supplies, you can whip up this Ghoul’s Night Out get together ridiculously fast.

Wheat Thins and Oreos

I’d say you could do it in less than an hour but the Bacon & Chive Cheese Ball needs to refrigerate for several hours to “set” so you do need to set aside a couple of hours if you’re planning on making my Not So Spooky Spider Ball.

And you totally should.

Not only is it delicious, it’s easy to serve alongside a box of Wheat Thins and with my help, we’re going to make it look like one of the Ghoul’s….complete with a bow on her head.

Once the cheese ball has firmed up a bit, the real fun begins.

Break out the craft supplies to turn your cheese ball into a spider!

Easy peasey, pop some pipe cleaners in for legs (you’ll cut each pipe cleaner into 3rds), add some eyeballs and you’ll all done.

Unless…..

You want your spider to look girlie and not spooky, then you add a little bow on her head. Just poke the ribbon with a straight pin and voila- your spider fits right in at Ghoul’s Night.
