Turkey Cheese ball 2 8oz pkgs of cream cheese, softened 2 Tablespoons minced onion 1/2 tablespoon minced green bell pepper 1 8oz can crushed pineapple well drained 1 tsp salt 1/2 tsp garlic powder 1/2 tsp onion powder 1 cup chopped pecans decorations: pretzel sticks whopper candy beef jerkey stick candy eyes candy corn fruit roll up chocolate icing or melted chocolate
Mix all ingredients other than the pecans together until well combined, i used my kitchenaid stand mixer. 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.
Decorate: 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.
