It’s October, which means I can officially start sharing all my favorite Halloween treats.

And it wouldn’t be Halloween if I didn’t share Rice Krispie treat recipes with you all!

You may remember these fun Frankenstein treats from last year. Today…it’s all about the spider.

Plus, these treats are easy enough you can get the kids involved!

How to Make Spider Rice Krispies Treats

Step by Step how to make spider rice krispie treats

STEP 1: Prepare a batch of Rice Krispie Treats. 

Using either my favorite recipe for Rice Krispie Treats or unwrapping individual store bought treats, you decide which route to go.

Make treats in a 9-inch square baking dish. Once set, cut into 8 large rectangles, or 16 small.

STEP 2: Melt Chocolate.

I use Ghirardelli dark chocolate wafers because I love the flavor. Melt in a glass bowl for one minute. Stir until smooth. Add an additional 15-30 seconds if needed.

Dunk the top of each rice krispie treat square into the melted chocolate, spreading smooth with an offset spatula as needed.

STEP 3: EYES.

Immediately place a pair of candy eyes onto each treat while the chocolate is still soft. Allow to set, about 10-15 minutes.

STEP 4: LEGS.

Once chocolate has set onto the rice krispie treats, spoon remaining chocolate from the bowl into a small ziploc bag. Snip off the corner of the bag and pipe 8 legs onto each treat. Allow to set.

STEP 5: ENJOY!

Tips for Halloween Rice Krispie treats

  • Use my homemade rice krispie treat recipe or but the store bought Rice Krispies Treats for an easy alternative.
  • Good chocolate matters. I love using Ghirardelli Dark chocolate wafers. They not only melt smooth, but taste amazing too.
  • Make sure to allow the first layer of chocolate to set before adding the chocolate “legs.” Otherwise it will ooze right into the first layer.
  • Make a batch of these adorable Mummy Rice Krispie Treats by swapping out the dark chocolate for white chocolate!

How to store Halloween Rice Krispies Treats

These treats can be made several days in advance and kept at room temperature.

Do not refrigerate. This will result in some discoloration of the chocolate on the top of the treat! 

Store in airtight container on the counter at room temperature, out of sunlight (don’t want chocolate to melt)!

    This is a great idea for the Halloween season. They can easily be gluten-free too, which means my son can gobble them right up.
