2 8oz pkgs of cream cheese, softened
2 T. minced onion
1/2 T. minced green bell pepper
1 8oz can crushed pineapple well drained
1 t. salt
1/2 t. garlic powder
1/2 t. onion powder
1 c. chopped pecans
beef jerkey stick
fruit roll up
chocolate icing or melted chocolate
Mix all ingredients other than the pecans together until well combined. With damp hands roll the mixture into a ball and then roll in chopped pecans. Wrap it in wax paper and put it in the fridge to chill and firm up a bit.
To make the turkey "feathers" stick your pretzel sticks into the back 1/2 of the cheese ball. To create mr. gobblers head take a stick of beef jerkey and "glue" a whopper candy on top with icing. Then attach the nose and eyes also with icing. We made the gobbler by cutting a little strip of fruit roll up and then laying it over the candy corn.
