  • Mix marshmallows and melted chocolate until marshmallows are completely coated. Drop by spoonfuls onto sheets of wax paper to make 24 clusters for the "bodies" of the "spiders."
  • Cut each 12-inch piece licorice into 8 pieces. Decorate each spider with 8 pieces of licorice for the "legs" and 2 candies for the "eyes." Let stand at room temperature or refrigerate until firm.
  • Store in airtight container at room temperature.

Kids will enjoy making and decorating these spooky treats. They'll also enjoy eating them, but keep tabs on portions.

Special Extra

Stir in 1/4 cup coarsely chopped PLANTERS Walnuts or Dry Roasted Peanuts along with the marshmallows.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These were great and the kids loved them. These were great and the kids loved them. I would recommend putting the licorice down first on the waxed paper (one long string can make two legs), then put the warm chocolate-covered marshmallows on top. Also, be sure to remove the melted chocolate from the heat before adding the marshmallows to coat!

I'm sure there is a trick to this, but my marshmallows melted into big globs of goo, but I just plopped them on the wax paper and the looked like chocolate globs. I used chow mein noodles as the legs as they were easier and a little gel on the m&m's for eyeballs. My daughter loved them!

I used Baker's Chocolate, but I could not get my marshmellows completely covered in chocolate before it started to stiffen, so they were partially white. The "legs" and "eyes" had some trouble staying on also. The spiders themselves tasted pretty good, but mine just didn't look right.

I think they would have turned out a little better if I would have let the marshmallows melt just a little before dropping them on the wax paper. They were cute though.

My daughter is allergic to eggs, and this is a great alternative to cakes and cookies for a special haloween treat. She listens for someone to go to the kitchen so they can get her a spider. We will definantly make these again.

My first school baking assignment was a breeze with these easy to make, cute to look at, and yummy tasting Halloween spiders! My four year old thought his mom was the coolest cook. I will make them again and again!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It was a fun and easy recipe to make. It was a fun and easy recipe to make. The kids loved helping. I melted my marshmallows a little bit too much and so my spiders were just smooth globs instead of bumpy marshmallows. But they tasted great anyway!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I made these creepy spiders with 6 7/8 year olds. I made these creepy spiders with 6 7/8 year olds. Not too messy if properly set up such as the wax paper, legs already cut, and jobs divided for mixing and spooning. This recipe only made 12 "spiders" for me.
