As parents, we try to make the holidays memorable for our children. Unfortunately, life sometimes gets in the way and may cause us to forget days like Halloween until it’s almost too late.

If Halloween just happens to sneak up on you this year, this is a festive last-minute lunch or dinner you can make for the kiddos before they rush out to trick-or-treat.

(Of course, if you’re supermom and want to go completely over the top this Halloween, this recipe will work for you too.)

You will need:

  • Peanut butter and jelly sandwich (I used an Uncrustable; you can also make one from scratch)
  • Pretzel sticks
  • Chocolate chips

In just a few seconds, you can turn an ordinary peanut butter and jelly sandwich into a Halloween spider. It’s so simple — and so perfect for exhausted or forgetful parents.

LONDON - FEBRUARY 06: An employee has her hair rinsed after an application of bull semen and katera treatment at Hari's Salon on February 6, 2007 in London, England. A new, alternative and intense conditioning treatment at a Chelsea hair salon, Hari's uses organic pedigree Angus bull semen, fresh from Brooklet Farm in Cheshire. The substance's pure protein, combined with katera, a protein-rich plant root, penetrates each shaft and deeply nourishes the hair. (Photo by Daniel Berehulak/Getty Images)
