Fall Appetizer – Scarecrow Cheese Ball

If you are looking for a really fun appetizer for Thanksgiving or another fall party, then this one is perfect!  Everything on this adorable scarecrow is edible, but he’s so cute you won’t want to eat it!

– Cream cheese  – Cheddar cheese  – Garlic powder – Smoked paprika – Worcestershire sauce – Triscuit Crackers – Matchstick carrots – Red bell pepper – Black olives – Grape tomato – Parsley

I used the following ingredients in this recipe. This is what you’ll need from the store.


– In a large mixing bowl, beat together all of the ingredients until completely blended.

– Using plastic wrap, shape the cheese mixture into a round disc. Refrigerate at least one hour prior to serving.

Place a row of 5 Triscuit crackers, gently pressing the crackers into the cheese. Then, place a row of four crackers over the first row. This forms the scarecrow’s hat. Add a small piece of parsley as the flower. Arrange the matchstick carrots as hair.

– To make the scarecrow face, slice the black olives and place two slices as eyes. Press the grape tomato into the cheeseball as the nose. Then, press the red bell pepper slice into the cheeseball as a mouth.

Make a really easy and festive fall appetizer. This scarecrow cheeseball is made with 3 different types of cheese for a cute snack!
