Fun Halloween Snack: Monster Eyes

No, these monster eyes are not cookies, they are delicious little savory bites of cheese and sausage! The secret to these super fast and simple to make appetizers is Bisquick. They make a great afternoon snack or a wonderful hors d'oeurve for a ghoulish party. I'll be pairing mine with an icy cold vodka martini for happy hour on Halloween. The recipe is pretty basic so feel free to jazz it up to suite your tastebuds. Take a peek at how they are made when you,

Monster Eyes

Hmm! These look good. Can you eat them at room temperature, or do they have to be hot?

Ha Ha- I thought it was a cookie at first. I was wondering why someone would put an olive in there.
