"this was so cute and easy!!!"
"The port wine cheese logs are not available ANYWHERE, any more. I even went on line to find a store in Washington state that sold them. Not available. so I bought the round cheddar logs which are still available and after waiting until they were room temperature, shaped them into logs. They are yellow, not pink though."
"Simple and delicious"
"I used this for a Halloween party and everyone loved it. It tasted great and didn't last long."
"I made this cute guy for a party. And guess what? A guest brought the same thing! lol, but her's was made with Brie Cheese instead. They both were quite popular and gobbled up!"
"This turned out super cute and recieved lots of compliments. Unfortunately the grocery store I went to said they only sell cheese logs around Thanksgiving and Christmas. I let a cheese ball sit out for a bit to get soft then shaped it into legs, arms, the body and head and it worked just fine. I cut a tiny smile out of a slice of cheese for the mouth instead of using the pimiento."
"I made the mummy for my office snack day. It was such a hit my friend asked me to make one and bring to her house 2 days later on Halloween. Quick, Easy and a BIG HIT."
"I made this last year & it came out exactly like the picture. It was so cute & no one believed it was all made of cheese. Everyone loved it."
"I made this last year but I shaped it into a pumpkin ,I used orange food coloring to make the cream cheese orange and small yellow tomatoes for the eyes, it was a big hit, I didn't have a bite left.I let the logs get soft and just formed them to the shape I needed"
"This is absolutely darling! Great idea!"
