We're having guests over for drinks tonight and I picked this recipe for cheese pumpkins to serve with the drinks. I think it's a fun reminder of Thanksgiving and a great recipe to fix for National Pumpkin Month (October) too. :) Thank you Betty C.


  • 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


1. 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.

2. With end of toothpick, draw ridges around balls to resemble pumpkins. Dip bottoms of cheese balls in chopped peanuts.

3. Just before serving, insert pretzel halves into cheese balls for pumpkin stems. Decorate with parsley for leaves. Store in refrigerator.
