Peanut Butter and Jelly Spiders



Recipe Information

Total Time: 

15 minutes



Trick-or-treating (or any day) is more fun when it starts with a spooky snack, like these PB&J spiders. This is a great alternative to candy, and your kids can have fun with their food!


  • 6 whole wheat English muffins
  • 3/4 cup crunchy peanut butter
  • 6 tablespoons strawberry jam
  • 48 small pretzel sticks
  • 12 chocolate chips


Have a platter ready for the finished “spiders.” Split and toast the English muffins, and spread each with about 2 tablespoons of peanut butter and a tablespoon of strawberry jam. Arrange 8 pretzels, 4 on each side radiating outward, on the bottom half of each English muffin to make 8 legs. Top with the other halves of the muffins. Make eyes on top by placing two chocolate chips on each English muffin; they should melt a little and adhere to the muffin. Serve warm.
