Servings: 10

Ingredients

  • Pretzel sticks (approximately 12 per web)
  • 2 cups white chocolate candy melts
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate candy melts
  • 10 gummy spiders

Equipment

  • Parchment paper
  • Cookie sheets

Method

  • Place candy melts in separate microwave-safe bowls. Microwave 30 seconds at a time, stirring in between, until completely melted (about 60 seconds). Be careful to not overheat or they will burn.
  • Put a dab of the white chocolate candy melts on a parchment paper covered cookie sheet. Place pretzel sticks (about 12) in a fan shape with one end in the chocolate until you've got a full circle.
  • Drizzle 2 spoonfuls of white chocolate on top of the pretzel "fan" in a circular motion to achieve the "web" look.
  • Using a fork, drizzle a very small amount of dark chocolate on top of the web in a circular motion (if desired).
  • Place a gummy spider candy somewhere on the web, adding a small amount of extra chocolate to make it stick if necessary.
  • Let harden, putting them in the refrigerator if you want them to harden faster.
  • Carefully pull the webs off of the parchment paper and enjoy!

Rhiannon loves to cook and bake but has also never said "no" to a takeout burrito (see, she's just like you!). Despite slowly running out of room in her cabinets, she continues to expand her collections of cookbooks and kitchen gadgets and is deeply jealous of people who can just "whip something up" without a recipe. When she's not in the kitchen, you can find her camping and hiking with her husband and rescue dog, Waffles.
