Chocolate Pretzel Spiderwebs are a fun Halloween dessert you can make with the kids with just a few simple ingredients. They are perfect to bring to a Halloween party or gathering. 

I’m not afraid of spiders, you’re afraid of spiders! Not these spiders though, the kids and I indulged and ate both the web and its spiders!

We love all things sweet and salty combined and these chocolate pretzel spiderwebs are just that. This Halloween treat is easy to make, and takes just a little practice to get the webs just right. No two webs are alike! The most challenging part will be keeping it all together once it’s dried and ready to remove from the parchment paper. If you’d like to make smaller spider webs, break 4 pretzel sticks in half and form the web with the 8 smaller pieces.

How can you make Chocolate Pretzel Spiderwebs using different ingredients?

Instead of candy melts, you could melt white chocolate chips, almond bark or even use milk chocolate for the webs. 

M&M candies or Cadbury Harvest Mix chocolate candy would be a colorful substitute for the Reese’s Pieces. 

Black icing gel, piping black candy melts, melted milk chocolate chips, or even black licorice wheels are all great for the spider legs.

These are so fun laid over each other on a plate like a layer of real spiderwebs! 

Another cute idea is to package one each in a cello clear bag to gift as Halloween favors! You could even include toy glow in the dark spider rings on the side to complete your spider gift!

How do you make Chocolate Pretzel Spiderwebs?

Place parchment paper on baking sheet. 

Using 8 pretzel sticks, place them on your baking sheet, grouping them together to form a circle with one end of each pretzel touching each other in the center. 

Melt white candy melts according to directions. 

Pour into pastry bag using tip #5.

Start from the center of one of the spider pretzels and squeeze the melted chocolate out slowly to form a small circle in the center (this will help in holding the web together and place for one spider) and then in a spiral pattern, continue until close to the edge of the pretzels sticks.

Place 3 pieces of Reese’s Pieces on each web in various spots, including 1 in the center. The candy melts do dry fairly quickly so place your Reese’s Pieces spider in the middle first and add its 8 legs, 4 on each side, using black jimmies sprinkles.

Place 2 other candy pieces on various spots on the web, on a part of the pretzel stick. Add 4 of the black sprinkles to each spider, 2 on each side. You may have to dip the end of the sprinkle into the white chocolate to get it to stick to the spider and just in case the chocolate has hardened.

Let the chocolate webs dry for about an hour before removing from parchment paper. You could also place them in the refrigerator for about an hour to speed up the hardening process. 

Serve after white chocolate has hardened or store in an airtight container for 2-3 days.
