These Mummy, Spider and Spider Web Peanut Butter Cups are the perfect treat for Halloween! Made with only a few simple ingredients like white chocolate, pretzels and candy eyeballs on top of our Refrigerated Peanut Butter Cups – anyone can tackle this spooky DIY.
Makes 24 pieces
In a double-boiler over low to medium heat, add the white chocolate and cook until melted and smooth, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool for at least 3 to 5 minutes. Add the melted chocolate to a piping bag or pastry squeeze bottle fitted with an extra small round tip and add the peanut butter cups to a work surface.
To create the spider webs: Pipe concentric hexagon-like rings coming away from the center. Then, pipe intersecting lines meeting from the center point to create the webs. If the chocolate is still warm enough, drag a toothpick from the center to create the intersecting lines. Once that’s done, you’re going to place a few candy eyes on the webs.
To create the mummies: Drizzle the white chocolate organically across the cups to resemble white bandage strips on a mummy. And, of course, decorate with two eyes for an extra spooky looking Peanut Butter Cup.
To create spiders: You’re going to stick a few broken pretzel pieces into the sides of the cups to create spider legs. Then, pipe two dots of white chocolate onto centers of each cup and place a candy eye onto each dot to secure into place.
Let peanut butter cups stand at room temperature for at least 30 minutes. Once the chocolate is dry pack up for a later time, or set out on serving tray to enjoy right away.
*Cups keep well covered in the fridge until expiration date or at room temperature for up to two days.
