Want to make some fun Halloween treats, but don’t have much time? These easy Scary Chocolate Halloween Spiders can be made in just minutes! They’re delicious, though, and so cute that the kids will want to help.
These adorable spiders contain just four ingredients and are chocolately enough for even the most passionate chocoholic. The spiders pictured were made by my 12 year old granddaughter, Bella and her friend, MaKaylee.
Since chocolate is the star ingredient of these yummy spiders, it’s important to use high-quality chocolate chips; make sure they are not chocolate flavored as opposed to real chocolate. Check the additives in the ingredients; the cheaper chocolate chips such as Nestles and some store brands have less chocolate and more crap.
