Ingredients

  • 6 cups Cocoa Krispies
  • 1 package (10 ounces) large marshmallows
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • Black shoestring licorice
  • Black decorating gel
  • Candy corn

Directions

  1. Place Cocoa Krispies in a large bowl. In a large saucepan, combine marshmallows and butter. Cook and stir over medium-low heat until melted. Pour over Cocoa Krispies; mix well. Cool slightly.
  2. With greased hands, shape 1/4 cupfuls into 20 balls and tablespoonfuls into 20 balls. Attach two different-sized balls to make spider bodies.
  3. With a bamboo skewer or toothpick, poke four holes on each side of spider bodies for inserting legs. Cut licorice into 2-inch pieces; insert into each hole. Draw eyes on head with gel. Cut white portion of candy corn for fangs; attach with gel. Serve the same day for best texture or store in airtight containers. Yield: 20 servings.
