Creepy Cake Pops: How to Turn Cake Pops Into Spiders for Halloween Fun!

Transform cake pops into spiders! These cuties are a simple addition to your Halloween party – or pass them out to trick-or-treaters!

You'll need:

  • 1 recipe cake pops (get the recipe here)
  • black sugar or sprinkles
  • licorice strings, cut into 2- to 3-inch lengths
  • edible eyes

Here's how to make them:

  1. Make cake pops according to recipe using chocolate cake mix, chocolate icing and melted milk chocolate to coat.
  2. After you dip the cake balls in the chocolate, coat with black sugar crystals or black sprinkles.
  3. Gently push edible eyes into the chocolate. If you have trouble getting them to stick, you can use a dab of the leftover chocolate icing or melted chocolate. 
  4. Bend the licorice to form a curve. Gently push the licorice "legs" into the cake pop.
