Recipe: Easy Gluten Free Halloween Chocolate Spiders

Easy Gluten Free Halloween Chocolate Spiders Recipe - Quick and Easy Halloween Dessert Ideas, gluten free treats, peanut butter,

I love a good theme. 

Growing up, my birthday parties always had a theme. From a USA Party (I'm not quite sure what this shows considering I ended up marrying an American... but we were a few weeks away from a trip to the US so I think I was just uber excited), to a Pirate Themed 16th Birthday (you're never too old for a theme - especially when it means you can wear epic costumes) to Disney parties, disco parties and just about every other theme you could think of. 

Soooo, whilst we don't really do much for Halloween - I can never pass up a good theme, so I thought it was the perfect opportunity to get into the kitchen and create some Gluten Free Halloween Recipes!

These spiders may just be the easiest Halloween recipe you'll come across. They take just minutes to make, only need one bowl and there's no baking or complicated steps involved.

You could be like Jesse who tells me that spiders need legs, but with a little bit of imagination, these spooky Halloween spiders come to life with little eyes (or if there's no imagination, call them Halloween monsters and add a few eyes instead).

Even better? They're ridiculously delicious and there's nothing scary about the ingredients used.

They're gluten free, have a vegan option and can be nut free so everyone can enjoy them!

So let me share the recipe with you! >>

Easy Gluten Free Halloween Chocolate Spiders Recipe
makes ~16 spiders that are gluten free and can be vegan and nut free!

1 1/4 cup (215g) milk chocolate chips or melts 
2 tbsp (30g) peanut butter*
1x 100g packet (~1 cup) of Changs Gluten Free Fried Noodles (**see notes for other options)
Candy eyes***
  • Line two baking sheets with baking paper and set aside.
  • Place a small saucepan on the stove with about 1" of water. Place a medium-large heat proof mixing bowl on top and add your chocolate and peanut butter.
  • Heat your water over a medium-low heat, making sure the water doesn't touch the bottom of your mixing bowl. 
  • Heat your chocolate in the mixing bowl, stirring with a spatula to ensure everything is incorporated. 
  • Once your chocolate and peanut butter is smooth and melted. Turn off the heat and remove your bowl from the top of the saucepan. Add in your fried noodles and stir to coat your noodles with the chocolate mixture. 
  • Take a spoon and spoon out a tablespoon or so of mix onto your prepared baking sheet, repeating until all of your mix is used up. 
  • Add on your eyes and place your baking trays into the fridge to chill. 
  • Once your chocolate spiders are hard, they're ready to serve and enjoy!
  • These spiders will keep in the fridge for a week in an airtight container.

Notes:
*You can also use almond butter, cashew butter or sunflower seed butter for a peanut/nut free option
**If you can't find Changs Gluten Free Fried Noodles, other options that work really well are pretzel sticks (chop them into smaller pieces if they're long) or stick shaped cereals (like All Bran). You can also use puffed rice cereal - you'll just have a different look!
***I found little candy eyes in the baking section of Coles (in a packet with lips and moustaches near the food colouring) but if you can't find candy eyes, you can also use white chocolate chips with little dots of milk chocolate added on the flat side to look like eyes. 

But tell me, 
Do you celebrate Halloween? What do you usually do?
And themed parties - yay or nay? 
I feel like this is a polarising issue because people either love or HATE themes (especially if it's a dress up). I am definitely team theme! I keep telling Jesse I need someone to let me organise a party for them because I have so many great ideas 😝
