If Halloween snuck up on you (boo!), don't get tricked out of a Halloween treat. You don't need to invest in hokey smoke machines or tangled cobwebs to get in the Halloween spirit — we've got easy ideas for last-minute Halloween treats that are scary-good, and perfect for a spooky meal or take-to-school snack. A last-minute costume, on the other hand, is a bigger challenge, and one that we'll leave to you.

All you need to make Sandra Lee's Spider Bites is three ingredients: semisweet chocolate chips, pretzel sticks and creamy peanut butter.
