I love fall and it’s always been my favorite season. The weird thing is that I’ve never been a huge fan of Halloween. But, this year, I’m getting into it a little more. I’m not a fan of the creepy, and scary, but definitely a fan of the adorable and cute side of Halloween. That’s why these mini chocolate donut spiders were right up my alley.
For one, they are an easy Halloween treat you could make for a class party (especially since you can’t typically bring in homemade treats anymore – you can have the kids make them in class!) Second, I just think they are adorable. That is unless you hate spiders. But, nothing screams Halloween like a cute donut spider am I right?
I Want Halloween Treats To Be Easy
Plus, I’m all about Halloween treats kids can make themselves like my witches brooms. And, just like my brooms, these combine salty and sweet with the pretzels and donuts – yum! The best part is, you can start planning now and make these donut spiders for a fun Halloween breakfast idea for your kids, a Halloween party, or just because you like Halloween, donuts, and spiders. OK – maybe no one really LIKES spiders.

Instructions for Mini Chocolate Donut Spiders
Break Pretzel twists to a good length for a spider leg; this is the trickiest part and probably should be done by an adult. You could also use straight pretzels that stick straight out.
Use 6 pretzel sticks and place into the donut as the legs.
Using a small dab of chocolate frosting add edible eyes
Fill in the donut hole by adding chocolate frosting to the top of the spider and sprinkle with chocolate sprinkles.
The Halloween Donut Spiders really are SO easy! And, I’m sorry, but I love the sprinkles on top because they look a little hairy that way. Which of course, a hairy spider is definitely a creepier spider. What are your favorite Halloween treats to bring to a party?
