Ingredients to make spider webs

Step by Step Instructions

  • Set a piece of parchment paper (or wax paper) on a baking tray or cookie sheet.
  • Layout the pretzels in an asterisk-shape as per picture instructions, using about 8 sticks per web.
  • Repeat for eight pretzel webs.
  • Place the chocolate into microwavable, icing bags (or a microwave-safe bowl). If using chocolate bars, make sure to break them into pieces.
  • Microwave on low voltage in 20-second intervals massaging the chocolate in between or mixing the chocolate if using a bowl.
  • When the chocolate is totally melted, make a small hole with scissors in the corner of the bag.
  • Hold the bag tightly and squeeze the chocolate out, starting on the center of the pretzels in a circular motion. 
  • Wait about 1 hour until the chocolate cools at room temperature, or place them in the fridge or freezer for a quicker process.

Tips

  • You can also melt the chocolate in a small microwave-safe bowl and transfer it to a Ziploc or icing bag before drizzling it. 
  • Make sure the chocolate web is not too thin; otherwise, it can break easily. I made these with my 2-year-old, so they don’t look perfectly shaped, but we had lots of fun making them!
  • Piping bags are the best to make these pretzel spiderwebs, but you can also use a Ziploc bag and cut off the corner. 

Storage Instructions

These spiderweb pretzels can be stored at room temperature in a cool and dark place (otherwise, the chocolate will melt). 

Place them in an airtight container or Ziploc bag and refrigerate for 3 days.

Serving Suggestions and Substitutions

  • You can serve these spider web pretzels with fruit and a veggie for a healthier snack as part of a Halloween party snack platter.
  • I love using dark chocolate in recipes, and that’s what my 3-year-old is used to, but you can use milk chocolate or white.
  • If you like to add extra fun, try to use some Halloween sprinkles, desiccated coconut, candy spiders, or candy eyes.
