Halloween is the perfect time of year to host a party, plus it’s so simple to make themed foods as well that will have your guests in awe of your creativity. One way to do just that is with these No-Bake Spider Pudding Pie Jars. These pies are simple to make, you can easily make them in a round pie pan, but if you are hosting a party, using mason jars is a great alternative.
No-Bake Spider Pudding Pie Jars
If you use a mason jar, you can leave the lid screwed on, then when a guests grabs a jar, they can unscrew the lid to find a spider surprise inside. The mason jars also make it easy for guests to each get an individual jar instead of having to cut slices out of a pie shell. It also means they can hold the jar and chat and eat all at the same time. It’s a much simpler way to eat this dessert.
The perfect thing about this dessert is, if needed, you can swap out a few ingredients with gluten-free alternatives and easily make this a gluten-free dessert. That means if you do have gluten-free guests, it would be a great way to make sure they have a tasty treat too.
The mason jars can also be decorated with Halloween ribbon or twine to add a festive look to the jar and then just tie the spoon right onto the side of the jar. This will make it even easier for guests to grab and go. They could even take one home with them if they are just too full for dessert.
I enjoy serving these paired with Mummy Dogs, plus additional Halloween inspired treats.
Now, it’s time to get dressed up in your best Halloween costume and enjoy these No-Bake Spider Pudding Pie Jars with your guests.

- Place the eyes on each spider, securing them with icing.

Home Chef Tip: The easiest way to make a web is to create lines as if you were cutting a pie, then connect them with a curved line.
