Spider Cooking - Chocolate Spiders

One of the activities for our Spider Theme was to make Chocolate Spiders. They're delicious and really easy to make, whether with a class of kids or at home.

Large block of Milk Cooking Chocolate
2 Tablespoons of Crunchy Peanut Butter
1 Packet of Chang Noodles
Some dessicated coconut

1. Melt the cooking chocolate slowly in a saucepan, stirring as it melts.
2. Mix the peanut butter (you can warm the peanut butter first) with chocolate.
3. Mix the melted chocolate and peanut butter, with coconut, pour over the noodle mixture. Be careful not to break up the noodle sticks.
4. Put them in spoonful sized dollops on greaseproof paper and let them set.


Here's another recipe for Chocolate Spiders

12 oz. semi-sweet chocolate chips
5-1/4 oz. mini marshmallows (half a bag)
Waxed paper
Thin licorice whips ( black, brown or purple)

Melt chocolate in either microwave or double boiler until just melted. Stir until smooth. Add marshmallows. Place by spoonfuls on waxed paper. Decorate with 8 licorice "legs". Let dry.

For variety add raisins or nuts or both, even M&M's work well. Try different kinds of spider legs too. Potato Sticks or pretzel sticks. Think of even more. Be creative and have fun. Also spiders set much faster if put in the freezer for just a few minutes.

Makes about 16 spiders.
