Thanksgiving Cheese Ball

INGREDIENTS: 2 8oz pkgs of cream cheese, softened
2 Tablespoons minced onion
1/2 tablespoon minced green bell pepper
1 8oz can crushed pineapple well drained
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
1 cup chopped pecans
decorations:
pretzel sticks
whopper candy
beef jerkey stick
candy eyes
candy corn
fruit roll up
chocolate icing or melted chocolate

INSTRUCTIONS: Mix all ingredients other than the pecans together until well combined, i used my kitchenaid stand mixer. With damp hands roll the mixture into a ball and then roll in chopped pecans. Wrap it in wax paper and put it in the fridge to chill and firm up a bit.

Oh and btw this cheese ball is super yummy. We made this just to photograph it and it was gone in a few days with only 3 people (well really only 2) snacking on it. It’s my favorite go to cheese ball recipe.

Decorate:
To make the turkey “feathers” stick your pretzel sticks into the back 1/2 of the cheese ball. To create mr. gobblers head take a stick of beef jerkey and “glue” a whopper candy on top with icing. Then attach the nose and eyes also with icing. We made the gobbler by cutting a little strip of fruit roll up and then laying it over the candy corn.
