This Pumpkin Shaped Cheese Ball is a really fun and festive Halloween appetizer. It can be made ahead for ease and is always a crowd pleaser!




  1. In a mixing bowl, combine softened butter, softened Boursin, parmesan, garlic, white cheddar, and chives and mix until well combined.  
  2. Form cheese mixture into a ball and wrap in plastic wrap; transfer to the fridge for an hour or overnight until firm.  
  3. Add nacho chips to a large ziplock bag and crush with hands.  Add to a plate; set aside. 
  4. When you are ready to serve the cheese ball, roll the cheese ball in the crushed chips until completely covered.  You will most likely need to use your hands to do this!
  5. Now, transfer cheeseball to your serving platter.  Take the pumpkin stem and gently press it into the top of the cheese ball.  You can go a step further and create pumpkin ribs by using a chopstick or back of a butter knife.
