Description

October is the perfect time to make these Mini Pumpkins in preparation for Halloween. Made by combining red pesto and cream cheese, the mixture is shaped into a ball and covered in paprika. Spring onions are used to make the pumpkin vine and slashes are cut into the side of the cream cheese balls to complete the pumpkin effect. Refrigerate until ready to serve. Serve as a fun appetizer with crackers.

Ingredients

200 grams Philadelphia Cream Cheese
1 tablespoon red pestos
paprika
1 stem spring onions
