Make delicious bacon ranch cheese balls and shape them into adorable pumpkins for the perfect Halloween and Thanksgiving appetizer! These Pumpkin Mini Cheese Balls are cute, tasty and easy to serve!
Mix all the ingredients together well.
Roll the mix into small 2 inch balls or size preferred.
If you find them sticky, roll the balls into a little bit of shredded cheese to create a slightly outer layer and then roll again between your hands again to get the cheese to stick and lay flat.
Remove and create the "pumpkin" lines with the help of a butter knife or icing knife. I make about 8 wedges on each cheese ball. When making a line, don't go down too deep as you don't want the cheese ball to fall apart.
Add half of a pretzel stick and a small piece of parsley for a leaf. Push the end of the parsley lightly into the cheeseball near the pretzel.
