Pumpkin-Shaped Cheeseball

So this cute idea was all over Pinterest when I went looking for Halloween party ideas.  This may actually be my favorite thing we made for the party!  Delicious and easy.  I liked it so much that I made it for Opening Hunt this weekend!  I found this on LOLFoodie, but you could definitely do this with any cheeseball you liked (or even make pimento cheese into a ball).



  • 11 ounces of goat cheese, softened
  • 8 ounces of cream cheese, softened
  • 1 pound of sharp cheddar cheese,shredded (I used yellow to get a pumpkin-y look)
  • generous splash of Worcestershire sauce
  • handful of fresh chives, chopped (you can use 1/2-1 teaspoon chopped)
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 braided pretzel (for stem)
  • 1 parsley sprig (for leaf)

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and stir until combined.  You may want to use a stand mixer, since it can be hard to work with.  Once mixed, shape into a ball (or a pumpkin!).  Best if refrigerated for a couple of hours, or overnight.
