Ingredients

  • 2 (8-ounce) blocks extra-sharp Cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • 1 (8-ounce) container chive-and-onion cream cheese
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground red pepper
  • 1 broccoli stalk
  • Red and green apple wedges

Preparation

  1. Combine Cheddar cheese and next 4 ingredients in a bowl until blended. Cover and chill 4 hours or until mixture is firm enough to be shaped.
  2. Shape mixture into a ball to resemble a pumpkin. Smooth entire outer surface with a frosting spatula or table knife. Make vertical grooves in ball, if desired, using fingertips.
  3. Cut florets from broccoli stalk, and reserve for another use. Cut stalk to resemble a pumpkin stem, and press into top of cheese ball. Serve cheese ball with apple wedges.
  4. Note: To make ahead, wrap cheese ball in plastic wrap without stalk, and store in refrigerator up to 2 days. Attach stalk before serving.
