Items needed to make these cute peanut butter spiders:

  • 12 count pack of Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups (refrigerated)
  • ¼ cup of chocolate chips
  • 1-2 cups of mini pretzels
  • Reese’s Pieces

How to put together the Peanut Butter Cup Spiders:

*Refrigerate the Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups before starting. This will help prevent the candy from melting while you assemble the spiders. You definitely don’t want to have messy chocolate fingers while putting them together!

  1. Open the Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups and place them on a plate or pan lined with parchment paper. Leave enough room between the candies to place the other ingredients without touching each other.
  2. Cut the pretzels into smaller pieces using kitchen scissors to make the spider legs. You can also break them with your hands.
  3. In a small microwave safe bowl, melt the chocolate chips.
  4. Then, taking one pretzel leg at a time, dip one end of the pretzel into the melted chocolate and place it on the Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup. There should be 4 pretzel legs on each side of the peanut butter cup.
  5. Once the legs are attached, it’s time to add the eyes. Put a little bit of melted chocolate on one side of 2 Reese’s Pieces and place them on the front of the peanut butter cup to make the eyes.
  6. Once all of the Reese’s candy spiders are assembled, refrigerate for at least 10 minutes before serving. This will help any melted chocolate re-harden, keeping the candy spiders intact.

Easy right? If you want to save this recipe for later, be sure to pin it so you can refer back to it!
