Stuffed Roaches

What collection of gross recipes for Halloween would be complete without a nice selection of cockroach-based fare? These nasty, crispy-skinned looking roaches are gross Halloween food at its best. They taste really great… if your guests dare to eat them. The little bit of crunch from the walnuts give them the perfect crisp- roach texture. Mmmm.

Ingredients:
1/3 C. cream cheese, softened
1/4 C. walnuts, chopped semi-fine
20-30 dates, pitted

Instructions:

1. In a small bowl, combine cream cheese and nuts til well mixed.

2. Gently fill each date with cream cheese/nut mixture (you may have to split the dates slightly).

3. Serve in a festive pumpkin Halloween tray decorated with several rubber roaches (if desired). Label as “Stuffed Roaches,” or “Fresh-caught Cockroaches,” etc.
