Pumpkin Cheese Balls
It can't all be for the kids! We think these little cheese balls are an adorable appetizer for your Halloween party. We didn't want to leave them out just because they haven't received a good dose of artificial orange coloring. These precious Pumpkin Cheese Ball treats are sans actual pumpkin (which is fine by us - we need a break) but make up for it with a delicious combination or red peppers and cream cheese. Also, check out the recipe for Creamy Pumpkin Pie Dip while visiting Kitchen Simplicity's blog. Yum!
