Eye of Newt - Stuffed Pesto Balls

Fall is in the air, and baking begins again!
You are going to love this super simple and delicious
mozzarella stuffed delight!

Yes, it is true,
Beaulah has returned from her long hibernation,
and I am flying around on my broomstick!
She and I have been baking and
decorating and crafting - ready to 
PARTY until Halloween comes!!!

I put on my baking hat
- tee hee - 
and we whipped these morsels
up for you.  Fresh out of the oven
on these cool fall days, they are perfect.

They are the easiest things in the world
open a can of Pillsbury Baking Biscuits, and
cut each one in half.  Wrap a cube of mozzarella
that you have cut from a block of cheese inside.
The dough is so sticky, it will do a good job
of sealing without any added water.

Dip in pesto.  You could make it yourself with
all of your wonderful basil at this time of year,
or do it simple like I did and use a premade one.
I used Costco's pesto.

Spray a 9 inch cake pan with cooking oil and
place all sixteen of them in and bake at 375 for 20-25
minutes, or until you separate one and see that it 
is no longer doughy.

The cheesy gooeyness just oozes out!

Serve with a side of marinara sauce.
My friend Rachel first made these
for me and gave me the instruction.

Stuffed Mozzarella Pesto Balls Recipe
1 can Pillsbury Biscuits (8)
1 lb. block mozzarella cheese, cut into 3/4 inch cubes
1-2 C. prepared pesto

Open can of biscuits, and cut each in half.  Flatten
and place a cube of cheese in the center.  

Wrap the dough around the cheese, sealing
the edges.  Spray a 9 inch round pan and
place balls in pan.  They should all fit.

Bake at 375 for 20-25 minutes or until
lightly browned and cheese is melted.
Check to make sure the dough is baked
through by separating two balls.

Serve immediately while cheese is warm and

For Halloween - just give them a fun label, like
Eye of Newt or Oozing Wart Balls
it is all in the name!  

Picmonkey is a free program that has fun 
labels that you can create.  Make your
Halloween special with fun labels.


Chocolat - French for Chocolate. I adored chocolate from a young age when I had to sneak in the cupboard to find where my mother had hidden the Nestle's Chocolate Chips. Having read about the famous chocolat shoppes in Paris, when I finally got there I was determined to try a chocolate from every Paris shoppe. I invite you to share my adventures in creating, in travel, and in life.


  1. what! this looks incredible! I'm SO going to be trying them this weekend:)
    thank you for sharing!!!

  2. Sounds absolutely ghooulish!!! Where ever did you find Ms. Beaulah, I have been looking for her or at least a cousin of her's forever with no luck. Would love to have one for my Halloween home!!!

    1. Cindy, my sister gave her to me years ago, when Fitz and Floyd were still selling them. You might be able to find her on ebay, but I think she has become outrageously expensive - at least last time I looked, so I am terrified that she might get broken one day! Cross my fingers.

  3. Those sound and look so decadent! I love how easy they are to make. They would make a great appetizer for a party or two. Loving your creative name for them as well.

    1. Haha! It is the name that counts for Halloween parties, but they are great any time of year!

  4. What's in a name. Everything. This delicious recipe will taste and tantalize all who taste it with either of the cute Halloween names.

    1. Yes, Halloween, or fall, these are yummy any time!
