Turkey Cheese Ball 

This Goat Cheese, Cranberry and Pecan Cheese Ball is incredibly festive and full of flavors perfect for a Thanksgiving appetizer. If you are looking for a way to impress your co-workers, or get the kids involved in making dinner, this cheese ball fits the bill.

Prep time : 20 Minutes
Yield : 1 large cheeseball

Microwave Candied Pecans

  • 3 tablespoons light brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons salted butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup chopped pecans


  • 8 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 8 oz goat cheese
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 cup dried cranberries

Turkey Cheeseball

  • 14 pretzel sticks
  • 1 candy corn
  • 2 candy eyes
  • 3 tablespoons chocolate chips, melted


  1. Melt butter in a small glass bowl in the microwave. Stir in brown sugar and cinnamon. Microwave on high for 30 seconds. Stir in pecans until they are well-coated. Microwave for 2 additional minutes on high, stirring every minute. Spread cooked nuts out onto parchment to cool.
  2. In a stand mixer, beat cream cheese, goat cheese and honey until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Fold in dried cranberries.
  3. Shape the mixture into a ball. Roll the ball in chopped nuts. Refrigerate covered until ready to serve.
  4. Attach candy corn and candy eyes to one pretzel stick with melted chocolate to create a face. This is easiest if chocolate is in a piping bag. Place on parchment paper and let cool completely until chocolate is hardened.
  5. Before serving, press remaining pretzel sticks into back of cheeseball to create tail feathers. Then insert the decorated face pretzel stick into front. Serve with crackers or more pretzels.


You're welcome!
