  • 2 small microwave-safe bowls
  • Spoon
  • 2 piping bags
  • Oreo candy mold
  • Baking sheet or cookie sheet


  • 12 ounces white candy melts reserve 1/2 cup for piping on top to make the spiderweb
  • Paramount Crystals
  • 6 regular Oreos
  • ¼ cup chocolate chips or brown candy melts
  • Malted milk balls or other round candy
  • Candy eyeballs


  • I like to work in sections and melt more candy as I need it. Melt some of the chocolate in the microwave by microwaving in 30 second increments, stirring in between each session. Remove bowl from microwave just before fully melted. Stir until smooth.
  • Drop about ¼ cup of candy melt into the bottoms of the container. Place an oreo in the center of the holes and press down slightly. Don’t press too far that you’ll see it when you take them out of the containers. Spread more chocolate on top. You can just cover the cookie to use less candy melt and make more Spider candies, or you can fill it to the top of the container so that they are all consistently sized.
  • Set aside for the candy to fully set, about an hour. Once the candy melt is set, you can remove them from the container.
  • Melt about 1/4-1/2 cup of candy melt as you did before, and add about 1 teaspoon of paramount crystals to thin it out a bit. (you can add more if needed)
  • Place the chocolate in a piping bag and cut a small hole at the tip. Drizzle the icing circles on the top of the candy, and then overlap some on the sides.
  • While the chocolate is still melted, place the malted milk balls on top and allow the chocolate to firm up.
  • Melt brown chocolate and add paramount crystals as needed, and transfer to a piping bag with a small hole cut into the tip. Pipe 4 spider legs on each side, and fill in the gap between the milk balls with chocolate.
  • Add two dots of chocolate on the front of the spider’s face and add the eye candy. You may need to hold them for a few seconds to make sure they don’t slide down.
