These kooky critters feature bodies made of creamy peanut butter simply sandwiched between round butter crackers. Chow mein noodles are ideal as the crunchy legs, and plump raisins act as eyes. They are a great treat for Halloween.—Andrea Chapman, Helena, Oklahoma

"Made these to snack on when some friends stopped in. I used pretzels for the legs. I don't care too much for raisins, so I substituted milk chocolate chips . . . they loved them"

"Kids loved it and very easy to make. My daughter doesn't like raisins so we used miniture chocolate chips for the eyes instead."

"I like the idea of making cute spiders with the kids, especially quick ones that I can make with my preschool class. You really should not call them spiders, however, unless you put 4 legs on each side for a total of 8. These qualify as insects!"

"Made these for the frist time as a snack for my kids on a Thursday night and the rest of the weekend my 6 year old was begging to not only have these but to make them himself. My oldest (8) requested that I make them for his class as his birthday treat. I did make mine with the correct number of legs. ;-)"

"My grandsons loved these. Also made some with cream cheese and peanut eyes. I suspect the spiders lost their other legs jumping for joy at the prospect of going to a Halloween Party."
