I made these for a "bring an appetizer" party tonight. They went over really well and were really easy to make.
Here's the recipe.
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
Line small serving plate with waxed paper. Roll each level tablespoon cold pack cheese food into a ball; place on waxed paper-lined serving plate. Refrigerate 10 to 15 minutes for easier handling.
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. Store in refrigerator.
Makes 8 pumpkins
I love this idea. Thank you so much for including the recipe. I have no idea what cold pack cheese food is, but I will look it up.
Now, that's clever. Look good, too.
Life isn't about how to survive the storm, but how to dance in the rain.
Grace -- WM sells in our area. And it's sold by Hickory Farms in the kiosks at Malls. It's refrigerated and it's in a plastic carton.
BTW, I didn't know what it was either until I went looking for it!
