This is a change of pace from the regular savory cheeseballs. It's very good and I serve this with cinnamon graham crackers to enhance the flavor. You can use an actual pumpkin stem to make the cheeseball look like a pumpkin or use a little stalk of celery with some leaf still on it. But, none of that is necessary if you don't have anything to make it look like a pumpkin.
