Halloween Recipe – PB&J Spiders

Here is a Spooky take on a classic lunch treat! Not only can these be used at a Halloween Part, but a cute lunch time surprise for school during October. While some of the instructions seem self explanatory, we just wanted to show how quick and easy it was to make!

Ingredients:
Bread
Peanut Butter
Jelly
Round Cookie Cutter or Knife
Pretzel Sticks
Mini Chocolate Chips

Instructions:

  1. Use cookie cutter on bread slices to get the top and bottom of your spider body. (Or you can free hand with a knife.)
  2. Add peanut butter to one, and jelly to the other. We found it best to add the pretzel stick spider legs now instead of sticking them in later on. Place the top down to secure the legs.
  3. Now all that is left is placing two chocolate chips on top as the eyes! Simple, Easy, Delicious!
