Quick And Easy Halloween Chocolate Pretzel Spider Webs
October 31 is almost here but what’s more fun than these quick and easy Halloween Chocolate Pretzel Spider Webs,
which you can make with the entire family. Time seems to be slipping by faster and faster these days and especially in today’s world, it’s fun to take a step back and just have some fun with the family. If your household is like ours, the kids always love doing creative projects but when it comes to whipping up something spooktacular, I am always searching for something that the kids will love but is quick and easy for me and something we can do together with things we happen
to have in the house already or are made with things that are readily available without making trips to specialty stores. Our bootiful Halloween Chocolate Pretzel Spider Webs check all of those boxes and they are so easy to make. They are the perfect fun item to bring to school to drop off in the staff room to say ‘Thank you” to your child’s teacher or bring to the class party and I’ve used them as a Friday Fun Day project with my entire class as a conclusion to our insect and
arachnid units. The possibilities are endless and watching children discover and create is the best education of all. Plus who doesn’t love to eat chocolate pretzels? Here’s just how simple the entire process is to make our Halloween Chocolate Pretzel Spider Webs.
–White chocolate & dark chocolate (we purchased Great Value bars at Walmart for $1 each)
-Sandwich bags (or disposable pastry/icing bags)
(The quantity will vary depending on how many you want to make)
-Line the surface area (table, countertop, or cookie sheet) with parchment papers. -Take 8 pretzel sticks and group them together to form a circle with one end of each pretzel radiating out from the center. Repeat for however many webs you would like.
-Place chocolate pieces in sandwich bag and microwave on “melt chocolate”. This setting is specifically designed to slowly soften and melt your chocolate without burning it. (If your microwave doesn’t have this feature, simply heat on low wattage for 10-20 second intervals)
-Once the chocolate is perfectly melted, snip off the end where the chocolate will be squeezed out to make the chocolate spider web.
-To form a pretzel spider web, start from the center of one of the groups of pretzels that were previously arranged, squeeze the melted chocolate out slowly working in a spiral, and stop when you’re close to the edges of the pretzel sticks.
-Let the pretzel chocolate spider webs dry for about 1 hour or place them in the refrigerator/freezer to speed up the process
That’s all there is to it! Now that you’ve seen for yourself just how quick and easy it is to create our Halloween Chocolate Pretzel Spider Webs, how will you make the haunting fun come alive with your family?
