Harvest Time Jack O'Lantern Cheese Ball

Pat Morris


My sister-law Sandra gave me this recipe years and years ago. I tweaked it a little. I make it whenever I have people over -or I go to a get together during Harvest time -on Halloween and/or Thanksgiving. It is so easy and fast to make and there is not a crumb left. Everyone enjoys it.
