  • Pretzels (sticks not twists)


  • Spread cream cheese on the inside of one cracker.
  • Add 4 pretzels on the sides of each cracker, breaking the length if needed (these are the spider legs).
  • Spread cream cheese on the second cracker and add place it on top of the first cracker.
  • Take a small amount of cream cheese with the end of a knife and add it to the back of each candy eyeball. Place two eyes at the “front” / “bottom” of each cracker.
