Halloween Spooky Spider Treats
This is a fun way to spend a Sunday morning in the month of October. Or, prepare the Spooky Spiders for a Halloween party that you will be attending. No baking involved. Blend the ingredients together and mold. Here, let me show you:
This recipe will make approximately 24 spiders…
- 1 package (8oz) sliced almonds
- 1/2 cup of sugar
- 1 package (9oz) chocolate wafer cookies
- 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1/3 cup of light corn syrup
- 1/3 cup soy milk, vanilla
- Sugar Crystals, color of your choice
- Mini-Tootsie Rolls
- Sunflower seeds – I used plain, but it’ll be cute to use Candy Covered-Sunflower Seeds (Trader Joe’s)
Place almonds and sugar in a food processor (or what you have to grind up) until coursely ground.
Crumble cookies into almond mixture; add cocoa powder and mix into crumbs.
Add corn syrup and soy milk; mix to combine. (I used a mixer)
Set the mixture aside for 30 minutes. For the spider legs, use 1 mini-toosie roll for each spider. Tear candy into 4 parts. Roll each piece in the palm of your hands to a 3 1/2 inch rope. Line together all four ropes and connect in the center and press together. Separate the legs how you desire.
Press mixture into a Tbsp measure or roll with your hands; shape into the spiders body. Roll in sugar crystals. For head, repeat, but smaller…tsp measure…and roll into crystals.
To connect the body and head, I used a tooth pick. Place the spider onto the legs.
Insert two sunflower seeds into the head for the eyes.
Place on a decorative plate and surround with Candy Corn…
