(Makes 6 Servings)

 

Ingredients:

  • 6 Reese's Peanut Butter Pumpkins
  • 1/4 cup Hershey's Milk Chocolate Chips
  • Large pretzel twists (2 -1/2 to 3 inches)
  • 12 yellow Reese's Pieces Candies

 

Directions:

 

1. Line tray or cookie sheet with wax paper. Remove wrappers from peanut butter pumpkins and place alongside each other on tray leaving 1 inch of space between each peanut butter pumpkin. For each spider, cut 8 matching curved sections from pretzels, which will form the legs. Set aside remaining pretzels pieces.

 

2. Place milk chocolate chips in small microwave-safe bowl. Microwave at medium 30 seconds; stir. If necessary, microwave at medium an additional 10 seconds at a time, stirring after each heating, until chips are melted and smooth when stirred. Transfer to small heavy-duty plastic food storage bag. Cut off one corner of bag about 1/4 inch from the tip.

 

3. Attach pretzel legs and yellow candy "eyes" to spider with melted chocolate; place dot of melted chocolate on each eye. Allow chocolate to set before moving spiders.
