They were kind of cute. I took them to a Halloween party and most of them were eaten. When the goat cheese mixture warms to room temperature it gets very soft and the bat wings start to droop. So by the time I transported them to the party the bats were in danger of looking very tired. The taste was just ok. I would rather try something else next time.
These bite-sized bats have an adult-friendly flavor from the goat cheese, cream cheese, and pesto mixture. The kids will love to shape the bats' bodies, decorate their faces, and give them wings. Keep it simple by preparing just about everything ahead of time.
