8 ounces cream cheese at room temperature
1 teaspoon garlic powder
½ teaspoon onion powder
½ teaspoon ground black pepper
¼ cup diced red sweet peppers
¼ cup thinly sliced green spring onions
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese, separated in two
In bowl, add 8 ounces of cream cheese at room temperature so that it stirs up smooth and creamy. To the cream cheese, add 1 teaspoon garlic powder, ½ teaspoon onion powder, ½ teaspoon ground black pepper, ¼ cup diced red sweet peppers and ¼ cup thinly sliced green spring onions. Using a fork, combine all ingredients together until they are well incorporated in the bowl.
Spreading out a piece of plastic wrap shred 1/2 cup of cheddar cheese and spread over entire piece of plastic wrap. Spoon out cream cheese mixture in the middle of cheddar cheese so that the cream cheese is in the very center. Once all of the cream cheese mixture is out of the bowl, shred the rest of the cheddar cheese on top. Carefully wrapping the plastic wrap around the cream cheese mixture, make sure that the shredded cheddar surrounds the white center. This gives the dip an orange outside which will give it that “pumpkin” look! To get the ridges in the pumpkin, use several elastic bands to make indents in the ball of cheese. 4 to 5 rubber bands should be enough to give it the right look.
Let cheese ball sit in the fridge for a minimum of one hour before serving to give it the chance to firm up and set in the shape of a pumpkin. Right before serving, carefully remove the elastic bands and peel away the plastic wrap very carefully, making sure that the cheddar cheese outside sticks to the cream cheese mixture. Serve this pumpkin cheese dip with tortilla chips, fresh cut veggies or crackers! It makes a beautiful centerpiece for that special dinner as well, resembling an orange pumpkin decoration! Place right in the middle of your dining room table for a very impressive table setting and watch your guests as the compliment your taste!
