Spooky Bash in a Dash

Looking for some snacks that go perfectly with cold fronts and scary movies? Give your Wind & Willow products a spooky twist with these 5 easy serving suggestions. You will be ready to throw a spooky bash in just a dash!

Pumpkin Pie Cheeseball

If a Pumpkin Pie Cheeseball was not already the most festive item on our dessert table, shaping it into a pumpkin will send it over the top! After allowing your cheeseball to chill in the fridge, shape it into a ball and roll it in the graham topping. Then, use kitchen twine or the back of a knife to press ridges into the cheeseball. Top with a stem from a bell pepper to complete the look.

Graveyard Dirt Cake

Our take on dirt cake replaces the traditional pudding filling with a rich cream cheese stripe. Lay down a base of crushed sandwich cookies followed by a layer of Spiced Orange & Chocolate Cheeseball. Then, sprinkle on the cookie topping. Lastly, decorate with gummy worms and headstone cookies to add the graveyard feel.

Caramel Cheesecake Stuffed Apples

Trick and Treat Cheeseballs

Sweet and Savory Cheese balls for Halloween appetizers

Our friends Trick and Treat have a secret to tell. One is sweet and one is savory, but it is up to your guests to guess who is who! Decorate a sweet cheeseball with red licorice candy and taffy eyes. Meanwhile, hint at your savory cheeseball with chips, olives, and peppers.

Spooky Dessert Pizza

After-School Snacks your Kids Will Love

It is that time of year again: back to school! Treat your littles to some fun snacks after the bell rings!

It is that time of year again: back to school! Whether your kids are going to school or studying from home, after-school snacks are the perfect way to mark the end of the school day. These are three of our favorite snacks for kids (and adults!) that are perfect for after school, a packed lunch, or even special breakfast. 

1. Toast Critters

This adorable critters are sure to excite your little one! First, toast your favorite bread; we used hearty, whole grain toast. Then, spread a prepared cheeseball on top of the bread. Next, decorate with fruits, vegetables, and cereals to create little faces. Serve as an after school snack or for a quick breakfast!


2. Pinwheel Roll-Ups

Kids will love these small pinwheels. Simply spread a prepared savory cheeseball over the surface of a tortilla. Roll up the tortilla and cut it into pinwheels. This recipe is perfect for an after school snack or as part of a boxed lunch. 


3. Tuscan Owl

If you have a few mouths to feed, this tuscan owl is the perfect recipe. Combine 8 oz of cream cheese with Tuscan Olive Cheeseball (or savory cheeseball of your choosing) and instead of making one cheeseball, create two smaller cheeseballs. Use vegetables and crackers to create an owl (or other animal).
