Harry Potter And The Chamber of Secret's!

Here's another fun snack for second Harry Potter movie that is sure to please. This dish draws straight from the second movie when Harry and Ron must go into the spider's den to find the truth about Hagrid's innocence. Once Harry and Ron have found out the truth about Hagrid they are forced to fight their way out of the spider's nest. So what could be more fitting then a whole plate full of spiders for your little Harry Potter fan to fight through?  I found this recipe from Sandra Lee on the Food Network website and knew instantly that I wanted to prepare these.

1 (12-ounce) package semesweet morels
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
2 cups pretzel sticks

Place parchment paper on baking sheet; set aside
In a large glass microwave-safe bowl combine chocolate chips and peanut butter. Melt on high for 2 to 3 minutes. Remove and stir until smooth. (I made two separate batches of the chocolate mixture and set one aside to use as a glue to hold the legs in place.)
Stir in pretzel sticks. With clean hands grab pretzel stick and drop on prepared baking sheet in clusters to look like spiders. (Be sure to crumble the pretzels in the chocolate mixture so their easier to eat.)
Place in freezer for 5 minutes or until chocolate is hardened. Remove and serve. (Be sure to serve them quickly as the chocolate will not set up like no bake cookies)
