Featured Pinch Tips Video
- your favorite cheese ball recipe doubled (i use my garlic bacon cheese log recipe for this)
- 2 cups pecan chips
- large pretzel sticks
- 8 frozen boiler onions, thawed
- 1 tbsp cream cheese
- 1 large
- black olive
1Divide cheese ball into 1 large part and one smaller part and 8 1 inch balls.
2Begin with the large part. Shape into the body of your spider. Set aside when you are happy with the shape.
3Next take the smaller part and shape it into the head. Make sure the head is somewhat wide to make room for the eyes.
4Roll the pieces in pecan chips and press together on a plate to make the head and body of the spider.
5Next get 16 bread sticks. press two into the front side of the body near the head, make them kind of forward facing.
6Press 2 bread sticks into the back part of the body and make them somewhat rear facing.
7Next attach the other 8 pretzel sticks to the ones sticking out of the body using the 1 inch balls of cheese ball to finish the legs. dab a bit of cream cheese on the plate where you want the legs to sit, just to hold them in place.
8Next press 8 boiler onions into the head for eyes.
9Cut the black olive into 8 tiny pieces. attach to the center of each boiler onion with a dab of cream cheese to make eye balls.
10Chill for several hours or over night. Serve with your favorite crackers.
