Kitchen Fun With My 3 Sons

Spooky Spider Snack

Disclaimer: This post may contain affiliate links.

My boys wanted a cool Halloween snack after school the other day so we came up with this fun and Spooky Spider Snack! We made this using 1 plum, 12 pretzel sticks, edible eyes, and a big hand full of dark grapes.

We poked 3 holes on each side of the plum with a knife. Take 6 pretzel sticks and push them into the holes. Poke a hole on the ends of the grapes and slide them onto the pretzel sticks leaving just a bit of the pretzel showing. Fill up the other pretzel sticks with grapes and poke a hole on the end grape with the kitchen knife. Press that onto the end of the pretzel that is showing. Stick on the edible eyes with cream cheese (you could use peanut butter) and that’s it!

You could also do this snack by pressing raisins on the pretzel sticks instead of using grapes. A quick after school snack and the kids thought it was awesome!!
