I got the recipe for this delicious cheese ball out of a Taste of Home Halloween magazine. I have used it for Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas, it works well for all the fall holidays and it is so yummy! The recipe actually came from Suzanne Cleveland of
Pumpkin Cheese Ball
1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
1 carton (8 ounces) spreadable chive & onion cream cheese
2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
2 TSP paprika
½ TSP cayenne pepper
1 leafy celery rib for a stem
Assorted crackers and sliced apples
In a small bowl, beat cream cheese until smooth. Stir in the sharp cheddar cheese, paprika, and cayenne. Shape into a ball; wrap in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 4 hours or until firm.
With a knife, add vertical lines to the cheese ball to resemble a pumpkin; insert celery rib for a stem. Serve with crackers and apples.
