Boo! Here’s an eensy weensy super easy Halloween Treat that you and your kids can make together … or why not surprise them with this sweet Oreo Spider tucked in their lunchbox.  Just make sure they’re safely secured on their tuffets!

Halloween Treats: Easy Oreo Spiders


  • Oreos
  • Candy laces
  • Candy eyes 

If I had edible candy eyes, I would have used those instead of miniature marshmallows with a dot of black Sparkle Gel, but I tried about five different stores and they were all sold out.  Guess everyone has creepy crawly googly-eyed treats on their mind at this time of year!

Tip:  Instead of cherry flavored candy laces, you could use thin licorice ropes – even pretzels would do in a pinch.
