TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 25 min. YIELD:12 servings

Ingredients

  • Black shoestring licorice
  • 12 grape Jujubes
  • 1 cup vanilla or white chips
  • 24 red nonpareils
  • 12 chocolate wafers

Directions

  • 1. Cut licorice into 96 pieces, about 1/2 in. long. Using a toothpick, poke one licorice piece about 1/8 in. into a candy. Repeat seven times to make eight spider legs. Repeat with remaining licorice pieces and candy.
  • 2. Melt chips in a microwave or heavy saucepan; stir until smooth. Transfer to a heavy-duty resealable plastic bag; cut a small hole in a corner of bag. Pipe two small dots on one candy and immediately place one nonpareil on each dot to create eyes. Repeat with remaining candies.
  • 3. Pipe a web on each chocolate wafer. Pipe a dot of melted vanilla chips onto the bottom of the spider and attach to wafer. Yield: 1 dozen.
