Huge Scary Spiders Recipe
- 2 (1 ounce) squares unsweetened chocolate
- 1 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
- 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- ¼ cup butter
- 1 cup white sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 40 cinnamon red hot candies
step 1: Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Lightly grease baking sheet.
step 2: In a saucepan melt chocolate over low heat. Let cool.
step 3: In a small bowl mix flour, baking powder and salt.
step 4: In a medium bowl beat margarine on low speed until smooth. Add sugar and beat until creamy. Stir in egg, vanilla and chocolate. Add flour mixture and mix well, forming a stiff dough.
step 5: To make spider, shape a 2 inch flat oval for the body. Make the spider's head by flattening a circle about 1/2 inch wide. Shape dough for legs each about 2 inches long and less than 1/4 inch wide.
step 6: Attach the head and legs to body. Put two red candies into head for eyes. Bake for 5-8 minutes. Let spiders cool on baking sheet to avoid breaking when moving.
