I wish I could take credit for this cute idea but I found it at Cheat Day Cafe. It was so darling I had to try it. Hers look much better than mine. I got impatient and just laid mine all out on a cookie sheet. Then put them in the freezer for a few minutes and then broke them in to pieces.
They really do look like spider legs...HA HA!!
Chocolate Covered Spider Legs from Cheat Day Cafe Chocolate: white, dark, milk or a mix of all three thin pretzels (tied, not sticks) broken into large pieces peanuts (optional but a great addition) Directions: Melt chocolate in an electric skillet on low heat or in the microwave in a large mixing bowl. Stir the chocolate as it melts. You can add about a tablespoon of vegetable oil or shortening to the melted chocolate to thin it out. When the chocolate is completely melted, add the pretzels and peanuts. Stir until it is all coated. Continue to add pretzel pieces and peanuts until the chocolate is evenly distributed.
Drop by spoonfuls onto a cookie sheet lined with wax paper. (or just lay them out on the cookie sheet.)
Place in refrigerator until hardened.
What my kids did not eat I bagged up as treats to share with a few friends. It was a hit!!
