To make the Oreo Spiders: Place the black candy melts in a microwave safe bowl. Place in microwave for 1 minute. Take out and stir. Place back in the microwave for 30 second blasts until completely melted.

Line a cookie sheet with wax paper. Dip pretzel sticks in the chocolate, leaving about .25″ of one end uncovered. Place on cookie sheet. Each spider cookie needs 6 pretzel legs. Once pretzels are all covered, place in fridge for about 10 minutes or until chocolate hardens.

Remove the tops from the Oreo Cookies. Press the uncovered end of the pretzel into the white cookie frosting. Place all six legs and put the top back on the cookie.

Dip the backside of a candy eye into the melted chocolate and place it on the top of the cookie. Repeat until all Oreo spiders have two eyes.
