Pumpkin Cheese Ball

I have so enjoyed this Sunday..........the weather has been divine. I made this cute little pumpkin shaped cheese ball for a church service today. I got the recipe from Taste of Home. Hope you all are enjoying this blessed day. Thank you to everyone who commented on my house are all too kind!

20 Servings
Prep: 20 min. + chilling
1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
1 carton (8 ounces) spreadable chive and onion cream cheese
2 cups (8 ounces) shredded sharp cheddar cheese
2 teaspoons paprika
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 celery rib or broccoli stalk
Sliced apples and assorted crackers
In a small bowl, beat cream cheeses until smooth. Stir in the cheddar cheese, paprika and cayenne. Shape into a ball; wrap in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 4 hours or until firm.
With a knife, add vertical lines to the cheese ball to resemble a pumpkin; insert a celery rib or broccoli stalk for the stem. Serve with apples and crackers. Yield: 2-1/2 cups.

Note: I changed the recipe and added 2 t. of Bacon Salt instead of the Paprika and I added 1/2 t. of Paprika instead of the cayenne.............It was yummy!
