How do you eat your Babybel cheese?
I like to peel mine then pop the whole thing into my mouth!
As I savor the cheesy goodness, I find myself feeling uplifted by its delicious, slightly salty flavor.
Its one my all time favorite cheese of all time.
This time, I decided to put into a recipe that is both delicious and spooky!
Babybel has come out with a limited time Halloween packaging of their cheese. Their original flavored cheese has new cellos with different icons of Halloween.
I think the Dracula one is my favorite. Which one is your favorite?
– Frankenstein’s Monster
Lucky for you and me, Target is giving 10% off these Mini Babybel Cartwheel. This deal runs through early November, so, hurry now. Collect these cello wrappers, like me.
Babybel Cheese Ingredients
Babybel Cheese contain 100% real cheese. They use real milk in their cheese making them a good source of calcium and protein.
They also use vegetarian rennet in their cheese making process. Since they don’t use any artificial growth hormones*, their cheese is vegetarian friendly. How cool is that!?
*Quick disclaimer – No significant difference has been shown between milk derived from rBTS – Treated and non-rBST treated cows
Tips For Making Babybel Strudel
– Thaw the pastry for about 1 hour at room temperature before using it
– Lightly roll out the pastry dough. Don’t make it too thin
– Set your oven to 350° or 375°. Don’t set it higher than that temperature
– Use almond milk or hazelnut milk to baste the strudel. It will make the outside crispier
– After 16 minutes in the oven, turn of the oven. Do not remove the baking tray for another 8 minutes. This will make sure that strudel continues to bake without the cheese oozing out
Other Ingredients For The Babybel Strudel Filling
I went with cherry pie filling, but, you can use any fruit filling or just use fresh fruit. I tried it with green apples and agave syrup. It was so delicious!
– Peach pie filling
– Apple pie filling
– Dark chocolate
– Green apples
– maple syrup
– Fresh fruits
– Peanut butter
– You can even go the savory route by using my homemade pizza sauce

Babybel Recipes for Snack Time
I have always loved eating Babybel with apples. They make for a fun snack and its one way to get me to eat an apple.
Serving it with pretzels or any type of trail mix recipe is also a fun way to serve them. I like how the pretzel’s crunch compliments the creamy texture of Babybel cheese
When I was at target, I also noticed that they also sell babybel with crackers. I tried their cheese crackers with mini Babybel which turned out to be a great snack idea.
Its not just fruits and pretzels that babybel can be paired. I have served them with veggies like carrots, celery and broccoli.
Or, serve with olives or banana peppers too.
The possibilities are endless when it comes to using Babybel as a snack. There are so many possible combos that I know I will never get bored of eating them.
So, run to Target today and get 10% off Mini Babybel Cartwheel until November. Come back and tell me your favorite way of snacking on these Babybel Cheese!
