    Chocolate expert Linda Stahl demonstrates how to make Peanut Butter Pumpkin Spiders.

    Linda Stahl: Today, I am going to show you how to make a fun and simple Halloween recipe that's great to do with the kids. We're going to be making REESE'S Peanut Butter Pumpkin spiders.

    The first we are going to do is line our plate or tray with a piece of wax paper so that it's easy to move our spider later. Then we're going to take a quarter cup of our chocolate chips, put them into a microwave-safe bowl and microwave for 30 seconds at medium power or until melted when they are stirred.

    Now we are ready to put our pumpkin spider together. We are going to take the peanut butter pumpkin out of its wrapper, the chocolate that's already in the bag. We are going to snip a very small triangle from the end of that bag. I'm going to pipe a little bit of this chocolate along the edge of the pumpkin.

    Next, we are going to take our pretzel pieces and position them into that chocolate to form the legs for our spider. Now a real spider has four legs on each side, so you want to try and do that.

    Next, we are going to finish by adding the eyes. We are going to take the white pure piece, put it at the chocolate on the back. This acts as glue, putting them in position, and finish off by putting another dab of chocolate in the center of each eye.

    And there you have it, a REESE'S Peanut Butter Pumpkin spider.
