Very cute but with the cookie and cupcake and icing it was overly sweet
ooohhh I just love oreos and Im positive kids will too !!! This is spooky and fun and tasty !!
Cupcakes were very good. However, we made them up the nite before, stored them in a carrier and when my daughter passed them out the next day, the cookie was soft and stale. I recommend not putting the cookie on the cupcake until you are ready to serve the treats.
These turned out very cute. I agree with many of the other reviews in that the decorating was time consuming. Some tips I found useful was buying the double stuffed oreo cookies and taking them apart, put the licorace legs in and then use some extra frosting to stick them back together. I also found refridgerating the frosting helped make it thicker in cosistency (it was little runny after adding the orange koolaid). And lastly, I found spinwheel black licorice in the bulk candy bins at a grocery store. These worked really well for the legs.
Very easy and fun to make. I didn't like the icing though. If I make it again I would just use food dye to get the orange color for the frosting the KOOL-AID mix made it way too sweet.
We are going to make only the oreo spiders for my grandaughter's school halloween carnival. All of the children in the classroom are going to join in and will be a class project.
I had a hard time finding the licorice so I bought licorice wheels, unrolled them, and cut them. They were curled on the ends which made a neat effect.
The cupcake part was good but there was no way to make the spiders. I just put the candy I would have used for the eyes on top and that was fine.
Good luck finding the black pull apart licorice, the only place I saw it was online and it was spendy. We tried red licorice and it just looked awful.
This is the second time I have made this for my daughter's Halloween class and it is a hit everytime. I agree with most of the posts, it's hard to find the pull-a-way black licorice, so I opted for the chocolate licorice. I cut one in half with scissors, then cut that piece for a thinner and smaller piece. I know that takes some time, but it works perfectly for the spider legs!
