Edible Chocolate Spiders

These cute (or creepy – depending on how you feel about spiders!) chocolate spiders showed up in my news feed from Taste of Home and immediately captured the attention of my four year old.

They would make a fun activity to bake with your children or for a kid’s party.


    1 package chocolate cake mix (regular size)
    3 tablespoons butter, softened
    6 tablespoons baking cocoa
    1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
    1-1/3 cups confectioners’ sugar
    3 tablespoons 2% milk
    64 pretzel sticks, halved
    4-1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
    3 tablespoons shortening
    32 red M&M’s minis

Here’s the video:
