Directions

  1. In a medium size bowl, mix the cream cheese and shredded cheddar cheese. With a cookie scoop or spoon make about a 1-inch ball, roll in the crushed pecans and place on parchment paper.
  2. Take the edible markers and color the slivered almonds any colors you’d like. You’ll need 4 almonds per cheese ball. Place 4 almonds towards the back of the cheeseball.
  3. Cut the cheese slices into little triangles and the red pepper into little slices. Place these on the cheeseball as the nose and wattle.
  4. Store in refrigerator until ready to serve. Serve on crackers or with veggies. Enjoy!!
