How to Make Spider Donuts

Follow these directions to make some spider donuts!

1. Break the pretzels apart to make the spider’s “legs.” Each spider will need 8 pretzel pieces for its 8 legs.

2. Attach 4 pretzel legs to each side of each donut so that each donut has 8 legs.

3. Pour the melted chocolate chips into a piping bag. (A plastic sandwich bag will work great for a piping bag, too.) Pipe 2 small dots of melted chocolate on the top of each donut. Place a candy eye on each dot of melted chocolate. (The melted chocolate acts as a glue to hold the candy eyes in place.)

That’s it!

Aren’t they perfect?

Repeat this process until you have transformed all of your mini donuts into spiders. You can definitely use other donut flavors for these spider donuts if you prefer. For example, so variety packs of mini donuts include chocolate, powdered and cinnamon. Any of these donut varieties would work well for these Halloween snacks.
