Description

My favourite Cheese Ball recipe transformed into cute little pumpkins. Perfect for Thanksgiving or Halloween. Follow the link to my post for two other Thanksgiving appetizers.

Ingredients

  • 8 ounces, weight Cream Cheese, Softened
  • ¼ cups Finely Chopped Roasted Red Peppers
  • ½ teaspoons Garlic Powder
  • 1 pinch Cayenne Pepper
  • 1 cup Grated Cheddar Cheese
  • Paprika, For Dusting
  • 2 whole Green Onions

Preparation

Beat cream cheese, red peppers, garlic and cayenne until well blended. Stir in cheddar cheese. Refrigerate 2 hours or until firm enough to handle.

Roll into 1-inch balls and then coat in paprika. Make indents in the side of each one with a knife to make a pumpkin shape (refrigerate longer if needed before shaping with a knife).

Slice green onion into 1-inch pieces (green parts only). Slice each piece in half lengthwise. Roll each half back into a circular shape and stick into the top of the cheese ball. Refrigerate until serving.

I made these for a family gathering last night and they were a hit! So much so that I only got to try one…haha. I skipped the step of making the indents simply because I was in a hurry. They still looked like mini pumpkins though and everyone immediately recognized them as such. :) Thanks for posting!
