Spider Bites

I love Halloween because for me it signifies the start of a whole lot of eating. Although candy is great, I prefer fun Halloween-inspired desserts. I got this recipe from another Food Network great, Sandra Lee. It’s very basic, but really cute when it’s done.

  • 1 (12 oz) package of semisweet chocolate chips
  • ½ cup of creamy peanut butter
  • 6 cups of pretzel sticks


  1. Place parchment paper on a baking sheet; set aside.
  2. In a large glass microwave-safe bowl, combine chocolate chips and peanut butter. Melt on high for 2-3 minutes.
  3. Remove and stir until smooth. Stir in pretzel sticks.
  4. With clean hands grab pretzel sticks and drop on prepared sheet in clusters to look like spiders.
  5. Place in freezer for 5 minutes or until chocolate is hardened.

I like to use Reese's Pieces for the eyes.
