Pumpkin Cheese Ball

Are you looking for an easy yet seasonal appetizer for Thanksgiving?  Look no more!  I found this adorable Pumpkin Cheese Ball on Cupcakes OMG - isn't it perfect?  She calls it a Parmesan Cheese Ball - which, agreed, makes sense - but I decided to tag it as a pumpkin cheese ball purely for search purposes only!  :)  Served with crackers and bell pepper strips, it has a great presentation!

Recipe Courtesy of Cupcakes OMG
Serves 10-12

8 ounce block of cream cheese at room temperature
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 teaspoon oregano
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
Freshly ground pepper, to taste
Doritos, crushed
Stem from an orange bell pepper

Mix the cheeses, oregano, onion powder, and pepper until well incorporated. Shape into a ball and wrap in plastic wrap and chill for a couple hours - best overnight.  Before serving, roll in crushed Doritos and place the stem from a bell pepper on top. Serve with crackers, chips, and bell pepper slices.
