Pumpkin Cheese Balls

Never know what to do with the carved out pumpkin? Look no further…

Ingredients
  • 220g softened cream cheese
  • 20g finely chopped roasted red peppers
  • 2g garlic powder
  • 2g cayenne pepper
  • 85g grated cheddar cheese
  • Paprika for decoration
  • 2 spring onions
  • 2g salt

Method

  1. In a large bowl, mix together the garlic powder, cayenne pepper, red peppers and cream cheese until well combined.
  2. Refrigerate the mixture for approximately 2 hours so that the mixture becomes firm enough to handle.
  3. Roll the mixture into approximately 2 1/2 cm sized balls.
  4. Gently coat each ball in the cayenne pepper and refrigerate for a further 15 minutes.
  5. Using a knife, draw lines down the side of each ball to look like a pumpkin shape.
  6. Slice the spring onion into approximately 2 1/2 cm pieces and place ontop of the cheeseballs to resemble a pumpkin stem.
  7. Refrigerate until you need to serve.
