This is a cute and easy recipe that is perfect for preschool Halloween parties. They also make a fun fall treat for kids of all ages. And my 3 year old daughter LOVED helping me make them. Here is how to make Brownie Bite Spider Treats.
I used store bought brownie bites for these treats. I am not above using store bought snacks, by any means. Although if you want to make these from scratch (or box mix) you easily can. To make them the same shape, just use a mini muffin tin. Make sure to let them cool and refrigerate before starting your spiders, or they might fall apart.
Twizzler Pull and Peel candy
1T Powdered sugar
First you will need a glue for the candy eyes. I used a small amount of powered sugar, about 1 Tablespoon, and added a drop of water. A little bit of water goes a long way with this. Stir the sugar and water into a thick paste. Use that on the back of the candy eyeballs to glue them onto the spider. You can also try some frosting if you have some.
Then I took a lollipop stick to “pre-drill” the holes for the spider legs. You will have to pull apart the Twizzler candy to get all the long thin pieces to use as the spider legs. I cut each piece down to 2-3 inches to make an appropriate spider leg.
Once you have all the Twizzler legs ready to go, just stick them in the holes in the sides of the spiders (4 holes on each side, so your spiders all have 8 legs!). You can dip the Twizzler in your sugar paste to make them stay in a little bit better, although it’s not necessary.
My store only had the fruit flavored pull and peel Twizzlers, which are pink, purple and orange. I would have preferred green or black, but they still turned out adorable. I mixed and matched the colors to make all the spiders different.
These were a hit at home and they would be perfect for a classroom Halloween party or a spider themed birthday.
