Chocolate brownie spider recipe for Halloween

Scare up a tasty good time with these chocolatey Brownie Spiders! An easy Halloween treat idea that’s perfect for making the best Halloween Brownie for parties and playdates!

This recipe is originally found on Suburban Simplicity. 


Now, here’s the best part, depending on how much time you have you can either make a homemade brownie (our fav) or buy a box and bake it up! 

We use our delicious homemade Dark Chocolate Brownies for this recipe because they are so darn good!

Complete chocolate heaven!

Before you get going, place some parchment paper on a baking pan. 


So, once your brownies are baked and cooled, cut circles out with a biscuit cutter.

NOTE: You will likely get (9) 1 1/2 inch circles from an 8×8 pan.


You need just a couple more ingredients and your DIY Edible Spiders come together easily.  Goggly eyes are our go-to thing to bring life to a cute Halloween dessert. 

Look what they do for these Oreo Mummy Pops.  

The easiest way to affix the eyeballs is by melting some chocolate chips and placing a small dab on the back and placing them on the brownies.

For reference, place your eyes in the center near the bottom of your brownie to give it a spider look.

Once it hardens, the eyes totally stay in place.

Step 3 – ADD LEGS

Then, it’s just pretzels for legs and you’re all set. 

To make the legs, take small pretzel twists and break them into three pieces around the curved edges.

Tip: Make sure you have extra pretzels onhand because a few many break. 

Now, insert 8 pretzel legs, 4 on each side and you’re finished. 

Finally, plate these little crawlers up and you’re ready to scare up a really good time!
