Cream cheese is a serious staple in a low-carb eating plan and Halloween is a great time to dress it up. These cream cheese balls are scary with vampire faces!

Serve them with low-carb cheese crackers, celery sticks, jicama chips, cucumber slices, or squash squares. You can even toss them into low-carb chili and watch them melt away.


  • 1 (8 oz) pkg. cream cheese, chilled
  • 10 (or more) pitted black olives
  • 1 jar pimentos or roasted red peppers


Trim pieces of pimento or roasted red pepper into tiny bloody fangs (as pictured).

Cut each black olive in half lenghtwise. Chop another 2-3 black olives into small pieces for use as eyes (green olives also work well for the eyes).

Roll a small amount of cream cheese between your palms to make a small oblong ball.

Decorate each cheese ball with black olive hair– the placement of the olive should create a deep widow’s peak hairline.

Add two small pieces of black olives for eyes. Add your pimento “fangs.”

Tip: If your cheese is very firm, you may have to let it soften a bit before olives and pimentos will stick.
