Super Easy Spider Snack

It doesn't get easier than this.

  • one Reese's peanut butter cup (we used dark chocolate, but any variety will do)
  • a tiny bit of melted chocolate (I melted a few chocolate chips)
  • four pretzel sticks broken in half to make eight spider legs
  • two candies for eyes
  • Place the peanut butter cup upside down on a plate
  • Melt your chocolate 
  • Dip each pretzel stick half into chocolate and stick them to the sides of the peanut butter cup to make legs
  • Dip the candies in the melted chocolate and stick them on top for eyes
If you are looking for a fun book featuring spiders, check out Aaaarrgghh! Spider! by Lydia Monks.

This book is hysterical.  A spider simply wants to become a family pet, but every time she tries to warm over the family, they scream and throw her outside.  This is a must read with fantastic illustrations and some very funny moments.
