This is not a traditional grilling recipe, but one of my favorites to make.  With Halloween quickly approaching, this spooky halloween dip bowl is the perfect family bake.  Make it for your next Halloween party or just for fun with the kids, it’s a fun trick or treat for all.

How to form the spider bread

Spooky spider ingredients

To get started, thaw out 15 frozen dinner roll dough balls.  Now it’s time to shape the spider.  Combine 2 dough balls together to form the head and place in on a parchment paper lined baking sheet.  Next is the belly.  Combine 8-9 dinner rolls together and place it just below the head leaving a small space in between.

Spider elements

To form the legs, take the remaining 4 balls, slice in half and roll out  4 half-moons into 10 inch long strings, and 4 half-moons into 12 inch long strings.  For assembly, start with the longer 12inch strips and place 2 facing up from below the head and 2 facing down.  Next, take the smaller 10inch legs and repeat the placement on the inside on the longer legs.

Spider dough

Once you have shaped your spider it’s time to let the dough proof. Cover with plastic wrap and allow the dough to slightly rise for about 1 hour.

Before grilling the spooky breaded spider, brush the entire insect with egg wash and sprinkle shredded parmesan on the legs to resemble hair.

Bake the dip bowl on the grill

Pre heat the grill to 350 degrees.  Place the spider on the baking sheet on indirect heat and let it grill bake for 25 minutes.  Once the crust is golden brown, remove it from the grill and let it cool off.

To create the dip cavity, cut out the big hole in the spider’s body.  Next, create his eyes by slicing a black olive in quarters and placing 2 pieces on the head.
