Easy Pumpkin Cheeseball

The Fall season for food has started.

I saw a this darling pumpkin cheeseball over at Family Fresh Meals and decided I really had to make this for a family gathering (it was a BIG HIT - how did you do that?). This is a variation on a cheeseball that I have been making for years with softened cream cheese and shredded cheddar cheese. The orange color? It comes from crushed up Doritos.

Pumpkin Cheese Ball:

At room temperature stir and mash together  :

8 oz. cream cheese
1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese

Scoop into plastic wrap and form into a ball.

Roll into crushed up Doritos.

Push stem from a big green sweet pepper into the center of the cheese ball.


Serve with crackers, corn chips, or your favorite snack item.

If you like spicy food you can spice this up as much as you want with red pepper, pepper jack cheese, jalapenos peppers, etc.

Have fun with this. I want to say there were a lot of ohhhhs and ahhhhs when I brought it to the party.

I think this is a really cute party food item. Do you?
