Eeek... Halloween Mice Cheese Balls

These Individual Mice Cheese Balls looked like a fun Halloween treat and they were very easy to put together! You can keep them simple like I did or add eyes and maybe some chive whiskers. This would be a good project for kids to get involved in, messy hands are always fun:@)

 Cute-cute-cute! Well... As long as they're on a plate and not scurrying across your floor... 
 The tails crack me up! 
I used thin slices of celery, they suggest julienne carrot. Another option might be using chives or even a little piece of string licorice. 
Leftovers? Cheese balls with a cream cheese base are always good schmeared on a bagel:@)

8 oz cream cheese, softened
2 C (8 oz) pepper jack cheese, softened-or use whatever cheese you like
