The Dead Head

With a face mold you can create this great Halloween dish.
Line the inside of the mold with plastic wrap and line the inside completely with Prosciutto.
Shread the Prosciutto into small pieces first, it's easier to eat that way.
You’ll need probably a double recipe to fill up the face mold.
Press your cheese ball mixture into the mold, and chill. Remove from mold onto a plate, add eyes using olives. 
Surround the face with your favorite crackers.

Face Molds can be found at an art supply store, but if you can't find a mold, you could make this with a hard plastic halloween mask--just line the inside of the mold with plastic wrap to cover the eyeholes.  

Use your favorite cheese ball recipe that features cream cheese and will hold it's shape.  
If you don't have a favorite one, here's a quick and simple one:

2 - 8 oz pkgs cream cheese, softened 
2-  3 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese 
3 Tablespoons mayonnaise 
1 Tablespoons of horseradish
