Today I’m sharing a Festive Fall Recipe that for sure will be a hit during your Thanksgiving Dinner or any other party! This Pumpkin Cheeseball Recipe is super easy to make and so tasty, besides how cute is the pumpkin shape? This is one of the many delicious recipes that my friend Jeni Potter from Bakerette is sharing in her new book, Festive Feast! You are going to love it!

This is for sure one of the best homemade cheese balls that I have ever tasted. It is creamy, full of flavor and simply yummy!

I didn’t have broccoli at home so I used celery to make the pumpkin stem… So cute!

Pumpkin Cheeseball Recipe
  • 2 (8 ounces) packages cream cheese, softened
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tb dried chives
  • 2 tsp paprika
  • ½ tsp ground red pepper
  • 8 ounces sharp cheddar cheese, finely shredded
  • 1 broccoli stalk
  1. Combine cream cheese, onion powder, chives, paprika, and red pepper until well blended. Stir in shredded cheddar cheese until well combined. Cover and refrigerate up to 2 hours or until mixture is firm enough to shape.
  2. Shape mixture into a ball. Smooth the entire surface with a spoon or spatula. Using your fingertips, create vertical grooves in the ball to resemble a pumpkin.
  3. Remove florets from broccoli stalk and reserve for another use. Cut stalk to resemble a pumpkin stem and press in the top of the cheeseball. Serve with crackers, apples, or celery.
To make ahead, wrap cheeseball in plastic without stalk and store in the refrigerator up to 2 days. Just before serving, create grooves and attach stalk.
