The Milk Shake Factory

The treats are super spooky and easy to make.

Filled with some tricks and tons of treats, Halloween is one of the sweetest times of the year. Sure there are creepy decorations, frightening horror movies, and chill-inducing haunted attractions, but the plethora of candy-coated sweets is definitely something to feel warm and fuzzy about. The best part is that tons of everyday candy products, while always delicious, get a chance to be transformed into to something frightfully tasty.

The Milk Shake Factory, a 99-year-old family-run chocolate company based in Pittsburgh, known not only for their decadent shakes but also for their luscious chocolate, has cooked up a way to glam up your Halloween party.

Using their newest launch, Snappers, a sweet and salty treat made with caramel, pretzels, and milk chocolate, they cooked up creepy tarantulas for you to serve at your big Halloween bash. These crawly little treats are quick and easy to make with few supplies and tons of decadent flavor. Serve them at a party or hand out a bunch to trick-or-treaters.

For the foundation of the tarantula, use a Snapper to start. In a sauce pan, warm 3 to 5 ounces of chocolate. Once melted, use a spoon to coat each Snapper with an additional coat of chocolate. Coat in chocolate sprinkles for that "hairy" effect. Dip pretzel sticks into chocolate, coat in sprinkles, and "fuse" to the tarantula body. Allow the Snapper to dry for 2 minutes and add red or blue chocolate coated candies for the eyes. Enjoy!
