Happy Halloween Dip

As I've shared in previous posts I really love Tastefully Simple items and in a previous life was a consultant hosting a lot of parties.  Even though I've come to the realization that I don't have time to host parties I still have contacts in the business and buy a lot of product for my family.  As a treat I send my grandparents a box every couple of months.

I saw this picture and recipe when I was online placing an order and just had to share it with you.  Absolutely adorable!  We're having an eat day at work later this month and I plan on serving this.  It makes me look very creative with very little effort.


Bold Buffalo Blue Cheese Dip Mix
8 oz. softened cream cheese
1 Tbsp. hot sauce
1 large orange bell pepper
2-3 large pitted black olives (optional)
Blue Aztec Chips


Combine first 3 ingredients; chill 2 hours. Lay the orange pepper on it’s side; slice off the top side to make an opening in the pepper. Carve a face around the stem as the nose. Fill pepper with dip. If desired, before filling with dip, slice black olives in half and press behind the eyes and mouth to make them more distinct. Serve with Blue Aztec Chips. Makes 10-12 servings.

I've also put the cream cheese, dip mix, hot sauce and shredded chicken in a small crock pot and used it as a hot dip which I probably like a little bit better.  However you wouldn't be able to serve with the cute little pumpkin!
