The Jack-O-Cheeze Ball is a salsa-filled Velveeta ball Halloween party appetizer that melts into yummy queso fondue dip! Your guests will be mesmerized.

Jack is the Halloween version of Frosty the Cheeseball Man. But this time with a twist — the Velveeta is filled with chunky salsa!

Velveeta is an incredible medium to work in and is very under-rated in the sculpture world. I prefer working with Velveeta more than clay and even more than Play-Doh. And when you’re done playing with it, you can eat it too. Tastes just like liquid mac ‘n’ cheese.

What you’ll need to create your own Jack-O-Cheeze Ball:

Start by kneading Velveeta bricks into a ball. Carve salsa well in middle and freeze for 1 hour to firm. Remove and spoon out more of the well. Shape excess Velveeta into a Jack’s lid. Place in cool electric skillet; pour in jar of chunky salsa place top and seal and seal. Smooth ball with wet fingers. Decorate with celery stalk starburst and give Jack his black tortilla chip face.

As soon as the party gets going, gather guests around Jack and toast him. Without skipping a beat, plug in the electric skillet on low. (This gives “toast” another whole meaning!)

When the celery wilts dead, Jack is too and it’s time to dig in with chips, fruits, veggies, cookies, breadsticks, pretzels, Halloween candy‚Ķanything you want.

Shall we have a Velveeta sculpture contest? Yes! Have fun and send pix!

Here’s to a cheezy Halloween and YOU!
