4 oz cream cheese, room temperature

3 oz goat cheese, room temperature

2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme

2 teaspoons chopped fresh rosemary

1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil

2 teaspoons chopped fresh chives

1 teaspoon onion powder



Poppy seeds or black sesame seeds

Pretzel sticks


In a bowl combine the cream cheese and goat cheese

To the cheese add all of the fresh herbs, onion powder, salt, and pepper. Mix together thoroughly 

Put the cheese mixture into the refrigerator and let it chill for 30 minutes or longer

Once chilled scoop out the mixture and roll it into a ball. Roll the ball into the poppy seeds or sesame seeds until coated completely

Put three pretzel sticks into each side, making little spider legs

Keep doing this with all of the cheese mixture, making them all different sizes if you’d like

To serve I like putting this on a slate board with some grapes and cut apples

That’s it! The easiest Halloween appetizer that will keep everyone coming back
