Halloween has come and gone, but that doesn't mean the Dirty Pesto Q-tips appetizer can't make an appearance at another house party any time in the near future. More gross than gruesome, it could easily be served at any number of themed get-togethers, from little boy's birthdays to April Fool's Day celebrations and more.
Conceived by Dan Whalen of The Food in My Beard, the Dirty Pesto Q-tips is essentially a pesto sauce and mozzarella cheese hors d'oeuvres. Placed in a clever ear-shaped, flesh-covered platter, the pesto sauce certainly looks like a wad of earwax while the balls of mozzarella cheese is placed on lollipop sticks for the illusion of the common Q-tip. Interesting fact, Whalen made the ear-shaped dish himself, so anyone could take a stab at that as well.
