Isn’t this a cute idea from Betty Crocker? I might just need to add this to my Thanksgiving appetizer table. Very “kid” friendly and oh so whimsical. These were so cute, I just had to share.
Thanksgiving Pumpkin Patch Cheese Balls
8 tablespoons smoked Cheddar cold pack cheese food (from 8-oz container), well chilled
2 teaspoons finely chopped peanuts
4 butter-flavored pretzel spindles or sticks, broken in half
16 tiny pieces fresh parsley leaves
With end of toothpick, draw ridges around balls to resemble pumpkins. Dip bottoms of cheese balls in chopped peanuts.
Just before serving, insert pretzel halves into cheese balls for pumpkin stems. Decorate with parsley for leaves.
