1 package chocolate fudge cake mix (regular size)
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 can (16 ounces) chocolate frosting
Shoestring black licorice, cut into 1-1/2 inch pieces
1/4 cup red-hot candies
In a large bowl, combine the cake mix, butter and egg (dough will be stiff). Shape into 1-in. balls.
Place 2 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 350° for 10-12 minutes or until set. Cool for 1 minute before removing from pans to wire racks.
Spread a heaping teaspoonful of frosting over the bottom of half of the cookies. Place four licorice pieces on each side of cookies for spider legs; top with remaining cookies. For eyes, attach two red-hot candies with frosting to top of spider.
