Halloween Peanut Butter Apple Spiders 

I love how easily these spooky treats come together with what lots of people already have on hand! Apple and peanut butter, paired with some pretzel sticks and a few chocolate chips is an easy enough to prep school snack for a little monster. But, they’re also eye-catching and adorable as finger food at your next Halloween party.

Halloween Snack Idea: Peanut Butter Apple Spiders

Macro-friendly and otherworldly adorable, these tasty little spider treats are crawling on to a plate or platter near you this Halloween! Kids and adults can both enjoy the little faces on these guys which make a great all-in-one snack. 

Serving Suggestions to Make These Snacks Shine! 

Make these creepy-crawly delights something even more unique by adding a touch of flair to wow your guests.

  • Whip up an apple butter to serve as a delicious dip that will put these little apple spider snacks over the edge for your guests with a sweet tooth.
  • After cutting your apple slices, immediately submerse them in a mixture of honey and warm water. Stir gently and remove, you’ll be surprised how long they last before starting to turn brown. You can also use lemon juice, but in my opinion it wouldn’t jive with the peanut butter filling at all.
  • Add a thin layer of jelly to one side of the apple slice to modify these into tiny apple PB+J’s.
  • Finally, you can add a mummy-like appearance to these already spooktacular peanut butter apple spiders with a melted white chocolate drizzle to act as bandages.

Below you’ll find a detailed recipe along with ingredients for making these delicious themed snacks.
