Mini Spider Bites

These little cupcakes are almost too sweet to eat! Let the kids help you assemble the charmers and you can teach a science lesson, too—what a great way to teach that all spiders have eight legs! —Sara Martin, Brookfield, Wisconsin

    We made these for an office party. They were a big hit! They were fun and easy to make. We used mini choc chips in the eyes and a cinnamon candy for the nose.

    Excellent recipe and so cute. Thanks so much as my grand kids really enjoyed making these little spiders, and so easy. I helped them with the licorice and the rest was easy.
