I used my standard cheese ball recipe, adding in green onions and a dash Worcestershire sauce. After the cheese ball is formed into a pumpkin shape and refrigerated for a bit, roll the whole thing in crushed cheese-flavored tortilla chips and decorate with olive pieces and a small pickle (my son's favorite part). Then, serve with crackers!
Jack-O-Lantern Cheese Ball Recipe
- 2 packages cream cheese
- 1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
- 4 green onions
- 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
- 10 cheese-flavored tortilla chips, crushed
- 4 whole olives
- small pickle
Mix first 4 ingredients thoroughly. Form into a pumpkin shape (remember a spot for the stem), wrap in plastic and refrigerate for half an hour. Roll in the crushed tortilla chips, pressing the crumbs into the cheese ball. Make a jack-o-lantern face by cutting shapes from the olives, and add the pickle for a stem.
