I've never taken a sculpture class and am not particularly artistic, but I thougth this halloween cheese ball somewhat resembled a small pumpkin. If you really use your imagination. But even if the pumpkin shape is slightly hard to detect, it tastes really great. How can you go wrong with three kinds of cheese, paprika and ground red pepper? It's a pretty thick cheese mixture, so be sure to serve with some sturdy crackers, along with the rest of the pretzels. I'm now wondering if I could make this in a pumpkin-shaped cake pan and use it as a mold. Hmmm.
