Owl Cheese Ball

A cheese ball with a new look, this one is shaped into an owl.  It makes a fun and delicious Fall treat.
Or try a few minor variations and you can create a turkey for Thanksgiving.  Let your imagination go and enjoy this appetizer for the Holidays.  We made up this delicious little owl for a Fall Tea Party last week, and he made us all smile.
