Surely you'll want to serve rat at your Halloween party! Hungry Happenings shows us how to make a cheese ball rat. The rat pictured is a sweet concoction of cream cheese and crushed Oreo cookies, with a pink cream cheese tail. The rat's "hair" is Oreo cookie crumbs! The recipe is simple, but the magic is in the shape. The complete instructions for making your cheese ball rat are here. You can serve this as a spread for graham crackers or shortbread cookies, or sliced up by itself if it's refrigerated.
If you prefer a savory cheese ball rat, you can make one using the same technique and this recipe that consists of mixing cream cheese, cheddar cheese, and bacon, rolled in poppy seeds for the hair. Who knew rats could be so delicious? The biggest problem I see is knowing when to stop eating.
