Halloween Appetizer :: Goblin Eyes!


Halloween appetizers

You know what gets me excited? When you find new ways to put a twist on a favorite recipe. And today folks, we have just that! I was recently asked by Pepperidge Farm to come up with a fun Halloween appetizer that incorporates Puff Pastry Cups and I was up for the mission.

My go-to spinach and cheese dip was the perfect compliment to the flaky and light puff pastry cups. To spook them up I topped them with sliced olives, transforming them into spooky Goblin Eyes — EEEK!

Super simple to make, healthy and cute!

24 Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry Cups

4 tbs cream cheese

2 tbs sour cream

1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

1 cups grated mozzarella cheese

Salt and pepper to taste

24 olive slices for garnish


-Cook Puff Pastry cups as directed and once done, set aside to cool

-Saute garlic and frozen spinach in pan until spinach is warm and liquids have cooked out; season spinach with salt and remove from heat

-In separate bowl, combine: cream cheese, sour cream, Parmesan and mozzarella

-Season with pepper to taste

-Add spinach to the bowl and combine all ingredients.  Transfer mixture into a pastry bag or resealable plastic storage bag (trim off end so you can squeeze mixture out)

-Using the pastry bag, gently squeeze mixture into each Puff Pastry Cup

-Top each with a sliced olive for the “eye”
