FrankenMickey Cheese Ball

I have Disney on the brain!

I could blame it on the fact that we just returned from our latest Disney vacation with six of our friends. But the truth is, I almost always have Disney on the brain!

One of my Disney Dreams is to spend a night in Cinderella's castle. It is my understanding you can't rent the  room but Disney will grant an overnight stay to contest winners. Upon the heels of our Disney vacation and first time we have ever attended Mickey's Not So Spooky Halloween party, Disney announced a contest and guess what the grand prize is? YES, a stay in Cinderella's castle!!

I had two inspirations for this cheese ball. First, I was inspired by all the Mickey shaped food we ate on our vacation. Second, I was inspired by the t-shirts my friend Angie and I made for our vacation crew to wear on the day we attended the Mickey's Not So Spooky Halloween Party.

Cheese Ball

16 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 Tablespoon A1 Steak Sauce
1 teaspoon hot sauce
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 cup Real Bacon Bits
3 Green Onions, sliced thin
8 ounces whipped cream cheese, softened
Wilton Moss Green Food Coloring
1 can chopped black olives
1 can jumbo black olives
Pretzel Rods

1. In a large bowl blend cream cheese, mayonnaise, Steak Sauce and hot sauce together. Add cheese, bacon, and green onions. Mix well. Line a Wilton Sports Ball Pan with plastic wrap and put the cheese mixture inside the ball. Chill.

2. Remove from refrigerator and unwrap. Place firm cheese ball on serving bowl.

3. Tint whipped cream cheese moss green. Cover the outside of the cheese ball in the whipped cream cheese. Add chopped black olives around the face. 

4. Add pretzel rods with jumbo black olives on the ends as neck bolts. 

5. Cut circles from black foam. Insert as ears. Add a jumbo olive as Mickey's nose. 

To make tortilla chips, use a Mickey cookie cutter to cut tortilla's. Spray with olive oil and lightly salt. Bake in the oven until crisp. 

I should warn you, your family might just think this appetizer is too cute to eat. My family would not cut into it until I did! 

Happy Halloween!

Yep, I am gonna link up to these awesome parties!
