Who knew eating spider webs could be so yummy?! These spider web pretzel snacks are easy, inexpensive, and cute! They’re perfect for a Halloween party and just the right mix of spooky but fun for kids. For adding stability, you can even consider making them spider web “pops” like I did with these Amazing Spider-man pretzel treats!

Spider Web Pretzel Snacks


– pretzel sticks 
– white chocolate/bark candy coating (I used white candy coating)
– milk chocolate (baker’s, candy coating, or chips would probably all work)
– raisins
– baggie or pastry bag
– wax paper


Lay out your pretzels on the wax paper in “starburst” arrangements of 6 or 8 pretzels (it’s a good idea to put it on a cookie sheet for transport stability).

After melting your white chocolate/bark coating, place in a baggie and cut the corner off (or use a pastry bag).  Start piping your chocolate in the middle of the pretzel arrangement, making sure to coat all the pretzels. 
Continue piping outward around the pretzels, until you have a web.  Then, place two raisins in the middle for the body of the spider. 
Melt your regular chocolate and pipe over the raisins.  I found that the spiders turned out better when I piped the legs of the spider first and then did the body.  Place in the fridge for a few minutes until the chocolate is hard.  Then, gently peel back the wax paper….and eat!

  1. YUM! I found your post on Tatertots & Jello. I love chocolate & pretzels together… and these are so darn cute! I'm featuring them on my blog this afternoon 🙂

  2. Are you aware the I am addicted to pretzels and chocolate? My kids will be making these as soon as I can get some more pretzels…this weekend. I can almost taste them now! Thanks for linking up to Theme Party Thursday!

  3. What a great idea!!! I am pinning this right now so I can do this with my kiddos…they are going to think I’m so cool (but I’ll be sure to give you the credit!) Thanks so much for sharing!!

  6. Love this! I’m in charge of a Halloween craft project for my kindergartners’ classroom, and I think this might be the one. Any idea how I can print it? Tried Print Friendly, but that didn’t work. (Love your blog…just subscribed via Google Reader!)

  7. I am in love with your spider web snack. So cute and clever! I can’t wait to make these with my little ones this Halloween Season. Thanks for sharing and I am excited to have found your website.

  8. I’m hoping to make these with a group of kindergarteners at my kids’ school on the 31st. Wondering how hot the pastry bag/baggie gets with melted white chocolate in it…too hot for little hands? Also, how quickly does the chocolate set? Wondering if the kids will work quickly enough so it doesn’t harden before they can complete their webs. Thanks for any advice you can offer. LB

  9. Saw these on Facebook and I cannot wait to make them!!! A friend is having a pumpkin carving party next weekend and I plan to make these for everyone. Thanks for sharing!

  10. “Buddy the Elf” posted these on Facebook. It was on my timeline today. Some suggested making snowflakes in the same fashion. Love it!

  11. I found your cute pretzel spider web idea on the “Bottled-up Design” facebook page. Thanks for sharing your clever ideas!

  12. So, I made these and got rave reviews, but the ones I made broke apart very easily – especially the webs. Do you have any tips or tricks on making thicker, stronger webs with the white chocolate?

    1. Hi Liz! Glad you made them and people enjoyed! They certainly can be fragile, especially once people start eating them. But, I’ve had fairly good luck with them holding together fairly well. First up, I think the white candy melt works better than true white chocolate. If the melted chocolate/candy is a little less runny when you pipe, you can usually get thicker lines. And, I definitely recommend putting them in the fridge or freezer to help them set. With all that said though, they still might get a little messy once you take a few bites. 🙂

  13. I made these for a children’s halloween party today, taste tested them and they are great. So fun and easy, I love it!

  14. this was one of those projects that looked so great online but then making them.. not the same. the project was relatively easy to do. the spiders were the most difficult. But then getting them off the wax paper.. impossible. even after putting them in the refrigerator for hours.
    the candy coating was just too fragile & broke. so much for the Pre-school Halloween snack.. on to the next one..

  15. These spider pretzel treats came out perfect. They were easy and the kids got to help too. Clean up was quick also. Thanks for the idea.

  16. These spider pretzel treats came out perfect. They were easy and the kids got to help too. Clean up was quick also. Thanks for the idea. I saw these on ministry to children website.

  17. Thank you for this cute idea! Just wanted you to know it’s great for times other than Halloween. I homeschcool and we just made these while doing a Unit Study on the book Charlotte’s Web.
