You'll want to make friends with these spiders. They're scarily sweet!


  • 2 tablespoons confectioners' sugar
  • A few drops of water
  • 48 thin black licorice strings, each 6 inches long
  • 12 chocolate cream sandwich cookies
  • 24 small red cinnamon candies such as Red-Hots


In a small bowl, stir together the confectioners' sugar and enough water -- 3-4 drops -- to form a thick paste; reserve.

Cut the licorice strings in half. Stick 4 halves into the cream on each side of the cookie to form the legs. Using the confectioners' sugar paste as glue, adhere two cinnamon candies on the top of the cookie to form the eyes. Eat -- if you dare!
