It's tasty, and disgusting all at the same time!
It's also quite easy to make, and will make a great impression on your Halloween guests... if you can just get them to take that first bite!
Hope you enjoy!
I have no idea where to give original credit to.. My friend Erika came up with it originally for our party, but I believe she was inspired by ideas seen in a magazine, and I've modified it since.

Step 1: Ingredients / Materials
Face Mold (You can find the ones used to make masks at an art supply store)*
Wide straw (McDonald's ones work well)
Cheese ball mixture - may need a double recipe, depending on the size of your mold. **
Thin Sliced Prosciutto (3 oz should be plenty)
Several Olives (At least 2 colors. Get a variety big ones with pits, black & green, and already pitted if you want to play around with what works best. See Step 3 for details)
Crackers for serving
*If you can't find a mold, you could try this with a hard plastic halloween mask--just line with plastic wrap to cover the eyeholes. But a mold will work better.
**Use any cheese ball recipe that features cream cheese and will hold it's shape. If you don't have a favorite, try something like this:
2 8 oz pkgs cream cheese, softened
2-3 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
3 Tbl mayonnaise
1 Tbl horseradish (or cajun seasoning to taste)
