16 ounces Cream Cheese
1 cup Monterey Jack Cheese (grated)
1 cup Cheddar Cheese (grated)
1 tablespoon Shallot (finely chopped)
2 teaspoons Smoked Paprika
1/2 teaspoon Cayenne
2 teaspoons Hot Sauce
1 Broccoli Stem
Red & Yellow Bell Pepper (sliced)
Combine all the cheese ball ingredients in a bowl until well-combined.
Scoop the mixture into a sheet of plastic wrap and use the plastic wrap to shape the cheese into a ball. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
Press ball onto a serving platter, being careful to maintain its shape. Score the sides so it resembles a pumpkin and press the broccoli stem into the top.
Serve with the cut-up veggies and pretzel rods.
