11⁄2 cups shredded white cheddar cheese 1⁄2 tsp. onion powder
1⁄8 tsp. garlic powder
1 cup finely shredded Parmesan cheese Round crackers for serving
20 to 24 whole cashews
In a large bowl, mix together cream cheese, cheddar cheese, onion powder and garlic powder with an electric mixer. Chill in refrigerator for about 30 minutes.
Spread shredded Parmesan in a shallow bowl or pan.
Remove cheese mixture from refrigerator. Scoop about 1⁄2 tablespoon of cheese mixture into your clean hands and form a ball. Roll the ball in the Parmesan. Shape ball into a slight oval, and place atop a cracker. Add a cashew beak and 2 black peppercorns for eyes. Continue until you’ve run out of the cheese mixture.

All you need to create these spooktacular mini pizzas are some refrigerated large flaky biscuits, a jar of pizza sauce and slices of mozzarella.
Pull apart the biscuit layers so each pizza crust is ⅓ to ½ of a biscuit. Add a spoonful of sauce. Then, use a cookie cutter to cut ghostly slices of mozzarella to cover the tops. Bits of chopped black olives were added for the ghosts’ eyes and mouths.
Bake according to the directions on the biscuit can.
