Pumpkin Cheese Ball

A cute way to serve a cheese ball that is perfect for the Fall season. Serve this with apple slices, crackers or whatever you prefer.


  • 2 (8-ounce) blocks extra-sharp Cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • 1 (8-ounce) tub chive and onion cream cheese
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • ½ teaspoon ground red pepper
  • 1 broccoli stalk

Apples, crackers, etc. for serving

Combine cheddar cheese and next 4 ingredients in a bowl until blended.  Cover and chill for 4 hours or until mixture is firm enough to be shaped.
Shape mixture into a ball to resemble a pumpkin.  Smooth entire outer surface with a spatula or table knife.  Make vertical grooves in ball, if desired, using fingertips.

Cut florets from broccoli stalk, and reserve for another use.  Cut stalk to resemble a pumpkin stem, and press into top of cheese ball.  Serve cheese ball with apples, crackers, etc.
