Pecan Pineapple Cheese Balls

A big thank you to Maryjo Bentley-Hibbert for sending the wonderful box of TJ Texas pecans, a wonderful container of pecans with 4 different flavours (honey roasted, praline, orange and cinnamon) from Treasure Journeys in Roanoke, TX. 

Pecan Pineapple Cheese Balls 
by Nancy

1 package cream cheese, room temperature
2 Tablespoon green onions, chopped
1/4 cup fresh pineapple, finely chopped
1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup honey roasted pecans from Treasure Journeys, finely chopped
1/2 cup cinnamon roasted pecans from Treasure Journeys, finely chopped
24 pretzel sticks

Mix the cream cheese in a medium sized bowl until soft. Stir in the green onions, pineapple, Worcestershire sauce, garlic powder, salt and combine. Place in the fridge till it is firm and will hold together to form small round balls. Use small melon baller and roll the cheese mixture into the combined pecans and place a pretzel stick in the centre. Makes approximately 24.

Can be made two days ahead, but do not add the pretzel stick until day of party.
