Spooky Spider Brownies are a fun way to celebrate Halloween.  Spiders and spider webs are easy to make with melted chocolate.

Halloween treats are always fun to serve, but sometimes they can be intimidating to make! No worries, these spider brownies look super impressive, but they are actually super easy to make.

All you need is melted chocolate and a piping bag or zip-top plastic bag with that you cut the corner off. Below there is a link to a video tutorial on it as well, so you can see exactly how it works!

Spooky Spider Brownies - fun and a little creepy for Halloween!


What You’ll Need

  • Brownies
  • Semi-Sweet Chocolate
  • White Chocolate

The simple thing about this recipe is that you can really use any type of brownies or bars you like. I love these Homemade Brownies, they are the ones that I have been making since I was a kid. But you can even pick up already baked ones from the bakery at your grocery store if you want too.

How To Make Spider Brownies

Let’s just say, I am not a crafty person by any stretch and these turned out super cut and are so easy to make! So trust me when I say you can do it too.

  1. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Melt about half or 3/4rd of the semi-sweet chocolate, place it is a plastic food storage bag, and cut off the top. Pipe “7’s” onto the parchment paper. You can vary the sizes, these will be your legs. Each spider should get 8 legs (you can do less if you want), so you will need quite a few of these!
  3. Next up pipe the spider heads. These are just small circles that you fill in completely with chocolate.
  4. Next, move onto the white chocolate. You can use a glass or cookie cutter to trace circles onto the parchment paper. Then with the white chocolate you want to pipe spider webs in the circles that you traced.
  5. Let everything set up completely. You can speed up this process by putting everything in the fridge.
  6. Now it is time to assemble! Carefully remove the spider webs and place them on top each brownie. Then with the rest of the melted chocolate, pipe spider bodies into the center of each web. Remove the legs and heads from your baking sheet, and set them into the melted chocolate to set up and harden.
  7. Let the chocolate harden completely before serving.
Spooky Spider Brownies are easy to make and fun to have around for Halloween


These brownies will last for 3-4 days in an airtight container. You should not need to refrigerate these, unless you live in a warmer climate. If the chocolate is soft, you can definitely store them in the fridge, just make sure they are covered, so the brownies don’t try out.

Spooky Spider Brownies are a fun way to celebrate Halloween. Spiders and spider webs are easy to make with melted chocolate.
Prep: 20 minutes
Total: 20 minutes
Servings: 12


  • 1 8- inch pan of baked brownies
  • 1 cup chocolate chips, melted
  • 1 cup white chocolate, melted


  • Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • Fill a zip top bag with melted chocolate. Cut a tiny bit of the corner off. Pipe "7's" onto the parchment paper. Different sizes are fine. You will need a lot – remember each spider will get 8 of them. Also, they can break when removing from the parchment, so pipe more than you need.
  • Pipe small circles that are filled in for the heads. Let harden completely.
  • Using a small glass, trace circles onto the parchment paper.
  • Add the white chocolate to another zip top bag, and cut a tiny bit of the corner off. Pipe spider webs onto the parchment paper, using the circles as your guide. Let harden completely.
  • Once completely hardened place spider webs on top of brownies. Pipe melted chocolate onto the center to be the body of the spider. Remove the legs and head from the paper, and place on the body. Repeat with remaining webs.
  • Let harden completely before serving.

  1. 7’s really? That’s all the spiders are? I looked at these and thought there was no way I could make them, but maybe I can!
