How to make it

  • Melt 2 tsp butter in small skillet until sizzling; add garlic and sugar. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring constantly, until garlic just starts to brown (3 to 5 minutes). Immediately remove from heat.
  • Combine garlic mixture and all remaining spread ingredients in a large bowl. Beat at medium speed until creamy.
  • Shape cheese mixture into a pumpkin shape with hands.
  • Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.
  • Place crushed crackers into a large shallow pie plate. Roll cheese ball into crackers; press evenly to coat. Place on serving dish.
  • Create a stem for the top of the pumpkin from bell pepper slices.
  • Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours or overnight to blend flavors. Just before serving; score vertical lines on pumpkin with knife.
  • Serve with crackers and vegetables.
  • Tip: Cut remaining bell pepper to serve with the cheese spread.

    This is such a cute idea! Sounds delicious too! I may omit the 1/4 cup of butter though!

    Sorry Land O' Lakes!
