Easy cheesy Halloween spiders


Last year we had the most epic fail when it came to our Halloween bakes. No really. I’m not joking. I followed all the instructions and this is what happened.



Can you believe it? Talk about #parentfail. So anyway, this year I’ve been determined not to do it again.


But then #Blogtober18 day 16 came up with the prompt ‘perfect recipes’ just in time for #NationalBakingWeek.




So this week I give you ‘easy cheesy Halloween Spiders’. I’m not sure how ‘easy’ these are going to be. But let’s give it a go and see… because it can’t get any worse than those slimy ghost bananas!



Easy cheesy Halloween spiders

You will need 3 ingredients to make these easy cheesy Halloween spiders. #WinWin right?! Wooohooo!!! Anyway. Try your best to get your hands on the following:


-A pack of Babybell cheese (any).


-A bag of cranberries…. I say this, but apparently I should have used olives. So… just get anything that looks like they could be eyes.


-A couple of bags of twiglets.  





Let’s get making!


Step 1.

Open up a bag of twiglets and snap 4 in half (to make the 8 legs). The littles will love doing this. I’m so pleased I bought a multipack of 6 mini bags because 2 disappeared within minutes *Coughs… Mr Button!!!

Step 2.

Next, prep your Babybell cheese by getting the little ones to peel off the wrappers.

Step 3.

Prep your spiders eye balls. I cut our cranberries in quarters as they were a bit fidderly. Olives may be easier to handle for the little ones.


Step 4.

Put everything together. First stick in the twiglet legs. Next fix the eyeballs on. And…. you’re done!

    hehehe! I love your fails. I can tell the cakes were meant to be spiders. Fab effort.
    Good luck with the toffee apples x

    Gosh they really are easy (and cheesy) and very cute. I have had my fair share of baking disasters. I like those brain jelly moulds you can get cheaply – easy peasy!

    They turned out fab I would say. I love doing halloween themed food, and we had an epic fail one year with “brains” and getting stuck to everything!

    I am loving the fails – ha ha! We will give these a whirl. #blogtober18

    Haha I love these. So quirky, fun to make, not to taxing and I bet that they taste yummy too xx

    Haha love your fails… although not really fails at all – they look fab! Love the idea of the cheesy spiders, which my youngest liked babybels!

    So simple but so fun! I love a Babybel, I was a bit addicted during my pregnancies and my work colleagues knew I was pregnant second time around when the Babybels started appearing!!!

    I love the cheesy spiders. I always like the sound of toffee apples but most of the ones i’ve tried have nearly broken my teeth.

    They look like spiders so I’d take that as a win! I’ve had too many baking fails to count!

  10. October 21, 2018 / 7:52 pm

    I always say its the thought that counts and the time spent together making them. Looks so much fun and turned out ok.

    Hi, love the idea of these cheesy spiders fun and quick and easy to make and no doubt delicious #dreamteam

    Scary food stack, just love them. Though some may not like the twigglets 🙂

    Wouldn’t be able to make these in our house though – be eaten before made…

  13. October 23, 2018 / 11:13 am

    How easy and cute do these look? Right I need to get baking! #DreamTeam

  14. October 23, 2018 / 11:50 am

    These look yummy and fun. I will have to try to make them with the grandkids.

  15. October 23, 2018 / 9:12 pm

    Love the simplicity of these and the great look too. #DreamTeam

  16. October 24, 2018 / 11:00 am

    These are brilliant!! What a fab idea, and so simple!

  17. October 25, 2018 / 9:07 am

    They look great! And don’t be so hard on yourself with the ‘fails’. It’s the taking part that’s the most fun, especially for the kids. They probably don’t even care if things don’t work out. I know mine don’t! #DreamTeam

  18. October 28, 2018 / 12:10 am

    nobody wants baking tips from me, but there is a chance I may actually give these a try. I don’t think I can mess them up, though if anyone can it would be me! #dreamteam

    Love these spiders. You are good kidoing the themed food. #DreamTeam

  20. October 29, 2018 / 1:51 am

    The spiders turned out so cute!!!! #DreamTeam

  21. October 29, 2018 / 10:49 am

    Some great food ideas for Halloween #dreamteam

  22. October 29, 2018 / 7:32 pm

    The great thing about these is that there’s so much the kids can do themselves. Good luck with the toffee apples I darent even attempt them!! #dreamteam

    Okay so the first fail made me laugh so much! But the cheese spiders look amazing, unfortunately not something we can do, due to a dairy free house
