For the Olive Spiders
Prepare the Tartlet Shells
Preheat your oven according to the instructions on the tartlet shell package.
Usually, it’s around 175°C (350°F).
Place the tartlet shells on a baking sheet and bake them according to the package instructions until they are golden brown.
Remove them from the oven and allow them to cool.
Make the Cream Cheese Filling
In a mixing bowl, combine the softened cream cheese. sour cream, mayonnaise, cheddar cheese, grated Parmesan cheese, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper.
Mix until all ingredients are well combined and smooth.
Fill the Tartlet Shells
Once the tartlet shells are completely cooled, spoon the cream cheese mixture into each shell, filling them almost to the top.
Prepare the Olive Spiders
For each spider, you’ll need one pitted black olive (the spider’s body) and six thin slices of black olives (the spider’s legs).
Take a toothpick and skewer the black olive through the center, then slide on the six black olive slices to create the spider’s legs.
You can adjust the length of the legs as desired.
Decorate the Tartlets
Place one olive spider on top of each cream cheese-filled tartlet, pressing it gently into the filling so it stays in place.
Refrigerate the tartlets for at least 30 minutes to allow the cream cheese filling to set.
This also makes the tartlets cool and refreshing when served.
Arrange your Halloween cream cheese tartlets on a spooky platter or serving dish, and watch your guests enjoy this delicious and creepy Halloween treat.
Enjoy, Good Appetite!
