If you follow along on this blog, you know that I love coming up with festive ways to celebrate the seasons and holidays. I have been having a ton of fun these last weeks sharing lots of Halloween ideas with all of you and can’t believe it’s time to wrap up Halloween here on the blog. I can’t think of a better way to do so then with these Pumpkin Mini Cheese Balls.

The kids will see a fun pumpkin shaped snack and love that they are filled with bacon, cheese and ranch. Doesn’t every kid love ranch? The adults will see a seasonally stylish appetizer perfect for Halloween and even Thanksgiving.

You might think making these Pumpkin Mini Cheese Balls are tricky, but they are not. Mix up all the ingredients, roll into small balls, chill briefly, use a butter knife to make the indents and top with garnishes. The whole process took me about 20 minutes from start to finish. Little hands can definitely be helpful, too!

Pumpkin Mini Cheese Balls
 
Author:
Serves: 10+
Ingredients
  • 8 oz Horizon Reduced Fat Cream Cheese
  • 1 oz Packet of Dry Ranch Mix
  • 3 strips of bacon, cooked and chopped
  • 1 c Horizon Shredded Cheddar or Mexican Blend Cheese
  • 1-2 green onions, chopped (optional)
Instructions
  1. Mx all the ingredients together well.
  2. Roll mix into small 2 inch balls, or size preferred.
  3. Roll the balls into the remaining cheese and roll between your hands again to get the cheese to stick and lay flat.
  4. Chill for about 10 minutes.
  5. Remove and create the "pumpkin" lines with the help of a butter knife or icing knife. I make 4 lines for 8 wedges. When making a line, don't go down too deep as you don't want the cheese ball to fall apart.
  6. Add half of a pretzel stick and a small piece of parsley for a leaf. Push the end of the parsley every so lightly into the cheeseball near the pretzel.
