Easy Chocolate Spiders {Without Mold}

Quick, easy edible chocolate spiders, homemade with simple ingredients like Rolo and Twizzler candies. Fun to make for kids Halloween parties.

I have been so eager to share these spiders with all of you. I felt like Halloween wasn’t getting here soon enough. In preparation, I bought tons of candies to give away. I even bought the most adorable teddy bear costume ever for my little one! While “sampling” all the candies, I came up with this cute idea. It’s a great last minute treat to make with your kids on Halloween. Along the spider theme, check out these Oreo Spider Cookies {No Bake} and super fun Easy Spider Web Cupcakes.

How To Make Easy Chocolate Spiders Without Mold?

  1. Make spider legs– With small Twizzler pieces.
  2. Make the eyes– On white chocolate chips.
  3. Assemble- Squeeze a dollop of chocolate, topped with Twizzler legs, Rolo and white chocolate eyes.
  4. Let the chocolate set– And enjoy!

Variations For Edible Halloween Spiders

Use mini pretzels– For spider legs instead of Twizzlers. You can also use mini licorice strips or pipe chocolate strips to make the legs.

Use Lindt candy balls– Instead of Rolos, or you can use chocolate truffle balls like these Healthy Chocolate Truffles.

Use store-bought eyeball candies– Instead of the white chocolate chip eyes.

Use these spiders as cupcake toppers– Add them atop these festive and spooky Easy Orange Cupcakes {With Whipped Cream} or these Best Red Velvet Cupcakes {With Cream Cheese Frosting}.

Decorate a whole spooky cake with a bunch of these stuck onto it– Top this delicious Moist Triple Chocolate Cake or this Best Vanilla Cake Recipe with these spiders on Halloween.

Draw designs on the top of the Rolo– Use red, yellow, or white melted chocolate to draw spooky black widow designs on the top.

Tips And Techniques

Use plastic gloves when working with Rolos– Otherwise the warmth from your hand will melt the chocolate.

Prep the eyes before attaching the legs– The melted chocolate will cool pretty quickly, so have the eyes ready to go before you begin assembly.

Make legs the same size– Otherwise it will end up looking like a chocolate sun as opposed to a spider. Not exactly the spooky look we’re going for!

What chocolate to use? I used semi-sweet chocolate, but you can use milk or dark if you prefer.
