This is a great "food craft" for halloween parties, school functions, or just a festive desert for your family. My inspiration of these chocolate caramel spiders were chocolate Turtles you can get at Fannie Mae. They are pretty easy to make, I made about 25 and it took me a little less than an hour, start to finish.
*Bag of Milk Chocolate chips
*Bag of small pretzel sticks
*Wrapped caramel squares
*candy decoration or sprinkles(I used Candy Corn)
1. My caramel squares were hard from being out in the cold, so I turned on the oven and put then on the stovetop to make the carmels softer so I can roll and flatten them. The microwave would probably work as well.
2. Put GREASED wax paper onto baking sheets so the spiders won't stick. I used cooking spray.
3. Unwrap caramel and roll them into balls and flatten them out a little to make the spider body. Put on greased wax paper.
