“To be cheerful when others are in despair, to keep the faith when others falter, to be true even when we feel forsaken—all of these are deeply desired outcomes during the deliberate, divine tutorials which God gives to us—because He loves us. These learning experiences must not be misread as divine indifference. Instead, such tutorials are a part of the divine unfolding.” — Neal A. Maxwell

Ingredients:
pretzel sticks
1 round chocolate candy as in Whopper or Chocolate Pom poms for the head
1 candy corn
a few teaspoons of melted chocolate melts to adhere the eyes and “beak”

Soften cream cheese and cheddar cheese. Cream the cream cheese and add in the shredded cheddar until thoroughly mixed together. Set it on plastic wrap and form it into a ball. Wrap it up and refrigerate for a few hours to firm it up.

Take it out of the fridge and roll in chopped nuts being careful to keep the nice round shape.

Place pretzels around cheeseball for turkey tail.  The neck is a piece of Slim Jim.  The eyes and beak were ‘glued’ on with melted chocolate.
