Jack-o-lantern Cheese Ball


I needed a quick recipe for a get together last night and I found this adorable cheese ball on the Kraft foods website.  I love a quirky seasonal or holiday themed dish so when I saw this Jack O Lantern Cheese Ball I just couldn't resist.  Plus I knew the kids would get a real kick out of it. And lets face it who doesnt love a cheese ball (especially one that smiles back at you?).  Here is the recipe - Enjoy!!

recipe from Kraftfoods
What you need:
3 green onions, divided
2 pkg.  (8 oz. each) Cream Cheese, softened
1 pkg. (8 oz.) Shredded Cheddar Cheese, divided
1/4 cup  finely chopped red peppers
2 slices pepperoni
 
What you do:
Cut 4-inch length from green end of 1 onion; slice remaining onions. Beat cream cheese and 1-1/4 cups Cheddar with mixer until well blended. Stir in sliced onions and peppers. Refrigerate 1 hour.
Shape the mixture into ball; roll in remaining Cheddar. Cut pepperoni into shapes for the jack-o'-lantern's eyes, nose and mouth; press into cheese ball to make face. Insert green onion piece into top for stem.

Serve with crackers and/or veges and some extra pepperoni.
