Halloween Chocolate Pretzel Spider Webs

This is a wonderful Halloween treat idea, chocolate pretzel spider webs.  It’s crunchy, salty, sweet and full of chocolate.

Ingredients and Supplies

semi-sweet chocolate chips & white chocolate chips
pretzel sticks
disposable pastry/icing bags {can use basic resealable plastic bags -sandwich size}
parchment papers

{the quantity will vary depending on how many you want to make}

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .


Line the surface area {table, kitchen counter top 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 {see picture below}.  Repeat this several times.  To make small spider webs, take 4 pretzel sticks and break them in half and form the circle with the 8 smaller pieces.

Place 1/2 cup of chocolate in a microwave safe bowl and melt it in the microwave for about 45-50 seconds then stir it.  If not completely melted, put it back in the microwave for about 10-20 seconds then stir it again.  Repeat this step until the chocolate is completely melted, but be careful not to burn it.  Do not use the chocolate if that happens, throw it away and start all over again. {This is the reason why I like to melt the chocolate in small batches}

Put the chocolate in the pastry/icing bag and snip off the end where the chocolate will be squeezed out to make the chocolate spider web.  If the opening is too small, just snip a little more off the end.

To begin forming  a spider web, start from the center of one of the groups of pretzels that were previously arranged in a circle, squeeze the melted chocolate out slowly working in a spiral and stop when close to the edges of the pretzel sticks.

Leave the chocolate pretzel spider webs to dry for about 1 hour or less if placed in the refrigerator before it can be taken off the parchment paper.

    I love this idea Kay! It’s a fabulously simple idea that looks amazing! We don’t really do Halloween here (however it is slowly catching on), but I thought these would be a great idea for my sons 4th birthday. He has asked for a bug themed party and these would be perfect!

      That is a great treat idea for your son’s 4th birthday! Just letting you know, they are delicate…but not too delicate to handle while eating them up.

    Hello! Love these. Am going to make them for my daughters daycare but am wondering how far in advance they can be made and best storage. Thanks!!

      Hi Stef! What a wonderful thing for you to do for the kids. Regarding your question about how far in advance could you make these, from my personal experience, about 1-2 days in advance should be fine. I live in the Northwest where it tends to be not so dry and crispy food such as potato chips and pretzels will become stale quickly. Store the finished chocolate pretzel spider webs in a resealable container by laying them flat and separated with parchment paper or wax paper between layers to prevent breaking. To make the smaller spider webs, just break the pretzel sticks in half. Be generous with the chocolate because that’s the glue to hold everything together. After one or two bites, the pieces will come apart to make for a messy/fun treat. I hope you have fun making these.
