Pretzel Spider Webs

Here’s what you need:

  • Pretzel dipping sticks
  • 1 cup white chocolate
  • Brown Reese’s Pieces or brown M&M’s
  • Black gel icing


Here’s what you do:

1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
2. In a small microwave safe dish, heat your white chocolate chips in the microwave on 50 percent power for 2-3 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds until melted.

3. Use a spatula to scoop your melted chocolate into a decorating bag and cut a tiny tip of the end.
4. Dab a small amount of melted white chocolate onto the back of 8 pretzels and place them onto your baking sheet in a circle so that all the ends touch.
5. Draw the first part of the web with your white chocolate by connecting your pretzels with a scalloped pattern starting on the outside.


6. Draw 3 more scalloped patterns with your white chocolate, each one getting smaller until you reach the center.


7. Place a brown Reese’s in the center.


8. Now draw the spiders legs on with your black gel icing.


9. Place in the freezer for about 15 minutes, then carefully remove from baking pan in one piece.
