Delicious Pine Cone Ball- Your Perfect Thanksgiving Appetizer

I love holidays when me and my kids get totally creative while preparing the special dishes and setting our festive table. I chose this easy pine cone cheese ball to ornament my Thanksgiving table. It is simple and super fun, and my kids were enormously happy to participate in the preparation and decoration of this amazing cheese appetizer, although I had a problem keeping them away from the almonds before the party starts. It is really hard to resist those tasty nuts and the combination of tender chicken with tons of cream cheese, mayonnaise, and garlic. Damn delicious! I`m so sure this will be the hit of the party that everyone will love. So, grab your glass of wine and enjoy the cheesy pine cone ball!
