Spooky Spider Pops are quick and easy to make. They are perfect for your next Halloween Party! Kids, young and old, will love these yummy treats.
The ingredients for the Spooky Spider Pops include chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, unsalted peanuts, chow mein noodles, M&M’s (for the eyes), and lollipop sticks.
Making the Spooky Spider Pops
To make these Halloween treats, I started by adding the chocolate chips and butterscotch chips to a microwave-safe bowl. Once melted, these will hold the Spooky Spider Pops together.
When you melt chocolate, you need to be very careful not to get it too hot. Therefore, I microwaved the chocolate/butterscotch chips on 50% power in 30-second increments. I stirred the chips after each 30-second increment to ensure that there were no hot spots. With my microwave (1100 W), it took about 2 minutes to melt the chips.
I added the peanuts and chow mein noodles to the melted chocolate/butterscotch to make the spiders. Then, I stirred the mixture with a wooden spoon to thoroughly coat the peanuts and noodles.
Using a 1¾-inch ice cream scoop, I dropped the spider mixture onto lollipop sticks that were on a piece of parchment paper, and added M&M’s for the eyes.
I popped them into the refrigerator for about 20 minutes to harden.
These yummy Spooky Spider Pops are sure to be hit at your Halloween Party. Yum!
