Peanut Butter and Jelly Spiders

Serves 6. Prep time: 15 minutes.
Ingredients: 

6 whole wheat English muffins
3/4 cup crunchy peanut butter
6 tablespoons strawberry jam
48 small pretzel sticks
12 chocolate chips

Preparation: 

Have a platter ready for the finished “spiders.” Split and toast the English muffins, and spread each with about 2 tablespoons of peanut butter and a tablespoon of strawberry jam. Arrange 8 pretzels, 4 on each side radiating outward, on the bottom half of each English muffin to make 8 legs. Top with the other halves of the muffins. Make eyes on top by placing two chocolate chips on each English muffin; they should melt a little and adhere to the muffin. Serve warm.

Serving Suggestion:
Trick-or-treating is more fun when it starts with a spooky snack, like these PB&J “spiders.” This is a great alternative to candy, and your kids can have fun with their food!
