Full ingredients list:
20 whole fresh dates, pitted
40 pieces sliced almonds
20 teaspoons Philadelphia Light Cream Cheese Spread
Nutritional information (per serve)
Instructions and steps:
Step 1Carefully open each date and remove the stone. Insert two almond slices.
Step 2Stuff date with a teaspoon of cream cheese. Don’t worry if some of it sticks out, as it will make the it look like a partly squashed cockroach.
Step 3Arrange the cockroaches on an orange plate or board and leave it at the front door, along with a few spiders.
Instead of almonds, anything crunchy will do — hazelnuts, peanuts, cornflakes or even toasted seeds.
Dried dates can be used, but they will have a more squashed look and they’re trickier to stuff.
The almonds can be bought already sliced.
The cockroaches are best eaten fresh, while they’re still crunchy.
