Halloween food gifts: Spider Oreo Snacks tutorial

Back to School time really motivated me to start up Mommy School again!

We took the summer off, but once I saw the school buses around our neighborhood, I was ready!  For the last couple of weeks, we have been loving our “I is for Insects” unit.  This week I decided to surprise Little Man with a “spider snack” after his nap.

He loves Oreo cookies.  He honestly prefers Oreos over my homemade cookies.  Tragic, huh?  I am still working on that… Anyway, I knew he would fall in love with these little spiders, and I was right!  This was probably my ‘Coolest Mom’ moment of the week.  We sat down and enjoyed Oreo spiders with milk!

 

Although I had hoped to dip these spiders in chocolate, I realized only had vanilla candy wafers on hand.  So this was a great time to teach Little Man about white albino spiders!!

These were SUPER easy to make…

I started out with a bowl of vanilla candy wafers.

 

I melted them for just 30 seconds in the microwave and mixed them up well.

We always have Double Stuff Oreos on hand at our house!  Seriously. We have at least 2 packages at all times.  It’s like our food storage.

 

I wedged a pretzel stick inside the Oreo and dipped it in the candy.  I resisted the urge to eat it up right then and let it cool on wax paper.  (You could also speed up the process by sticking them in the refrigerator!)

I dipped 4 pretzel sticks (broken in half) in the candy wafers too, and wedged them in each side for the spider’s legs.  I added mini chocolate chip eyes and a sour straw mouth before they set up, too.

 

We used M&M’s for these eyes.

And my little bumblebee gobbled up his spider! In fact, he begged for another one!

So we made a couple more.  They were YUMMY!

If you’re searching for a healthier option, you could try out Ritz crackers and peanut butter!
