How Cute Is This?

8 tablespoons smoked Cheddar cold pack cheese food (from 8-oz container), well chilled 2 teaspoons finely chopped peanuts 4 butter-flavored pretzel spindles or sticks, broken in half 16 tiny pieces fresh parsley leaves
1.Line small serving plate with waxed paper. Roll each level tablespoon cold pack cheese food into a ball; place on waxed paper-lined serving plate. Refrigerate 10 to 15 minutes for easier handling. 2.With end of toothpick, draw ridges around balls to resemble pumpkins. Dip bottoms of cheese balls in chopped peanuts. 3.Just before serving, insert pretzel halves into cheese balls for pumpkin stems. Decorate with parsley for leaves. Store in refrigerator.
We are home, got in late last night. I had such a busy day so will post more tomorrow...and begin to make my way around bloggy world to see you all. I do hope you all are well and staying warm...okay, so those of you in the more Southern/Western climes may be still be trying to stay cool but you know what I mean eh?
The trip was so nice..the girls all had great fun, the 4 parents enjoyed each other's company as always and we got to meet Meggie! She is every bit as beautiful and wonderful as you all knew she would be! More on all of this later....till then, much love, many hugs and..ohh! Ooh! It is snowing again! I LOVE snow!

Wouldn't that be darling for a Thanksgiving hors d'ouvres? Thanks for the cute idea!

Bonnie said...

Yep I'm stealing the pumpkins for Thanksgiving. I was having a hard time thinking of what to take(was told not to bring anything but you know how that is). These will be perfect. Thanks so much for sharing. And I'm jealous of the snow too. I lived my first 17 years in New England, but the next 30 in Central Florida. Nothing like snow this time of year to make the holidays more special. Glad you're back. Missed you.

Those pumpkins are very cute! And it sounds pretty simple to make! Glad you had a great time. Though I am a little (well, ok a lot) jealous that you met Meggie....since I wish you could have come down here and we could have met! Some day soon I hope...
Hugs,
Penny

Those little cheese balls are so cute!

Andi said...

How cute is that!!! I may have to try this. Last year I attempted to make penguins out of black olives...something I saw on Jen's blog I believe. Needless to say...I made 6 of the silly things...took a picture to prove I had done it...and said "never again". Way too much trouble for me...but they sure were cute.

Okay...I've been a bad blogger. Now I'm going back to re-read about your trip and French Lick and Larry Bird.
