With Halloween only a week away now, I thought I would share with you a super easy Halloween treat recipe for some Spider Chocolate Crackles that you can make with kids or just make for yourself for a bit of Halloween fun!
You'll need the following:
80g white marshmallows
40g unsalted butter
1 tblspn caster sugar
1 tblspn cocoa powder
2 cups cocoa pops
packet of licorice straps
white icing pen (available at most supermarkets)
Line an oven tray with baking paper.
Place marshmallows, butter, sugar and cocoa powder in a saucepan over low heat and stir for 2 minutes or until melted.
Place cocoa pops in a bowl, add marshmallow mixture and stir to combine.
Cut 48 7cm-long, thin strips from licorice (mixture should make about 12 spiders).
Shape a tablespoon of crackle mixture into a 5cm round and place on prepared tray.
Lay 4 licorice strips across round as the legs, overhanging them evenly on each side. Sandwich with another round of crackle mixture.
Using the icing pen, dot 2 blobs on the front of each crackle and secure two M&Ms as the eyes. Then place another small dot on each M&M to finish the eyes.
Repeat with remaining crackle mixture. Refrigerate for an hour or until set. Then enjoy!!
