  • 40 pretzel sticks 8 sticks per web
  • 2 squares almond bark vanilla
  • 5 candy spiders or decorating gel or melted chocolate


  • Melt the almond bark according to package directions. Spoon into a plastic sandwich bag and let sit for one minute.
  • Meanwhile, set pretzels out onto wax or parchment paper into a radial formation (this is the base of your spider web).
  • Make a small snip in one corner of the sandwich bag containing the melted almond bark. Drizzle enough almond bark on the center of the spider web to give it stability.  Let dry.
  • Once the pretzels are stable, create a spider web pattern by drizzling the melted almond bark around the pretzels in a circular motion.
  • Squeeze a small amount of almond bark wherever you would like your spider to sit on the web, and place the candy spider on top. Let it set.  Placing the spider in the center will add more stability to your pretzel web, but feel free to place them anywhere!  If using decorating gel or chocolate, squeeze a blob into the middle, then use a toothpick to pull the legs out.
