1/4 cup butter
250 - 300 grams marshmallows
1 teaspoon vanilla
6 cups cocoa flavoured puffed rice cereal
Black licorice strips cut into 96 5cm strips
24 Ocean Spray® Craisins® Original Dried Cranberries
1/4 cup Vanilla icing/frosting
TO MAKE SPIDER BASE:
Spray a 25 x 38-cm cooking tray with cooking spray.
Melt butter and marshmallows in a large saucepan over LOW heat, stirring frequently. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla. Add cereal; mix until well coated.
Spread mixture evenly into prepared pan. Cool (about 8 minutes); form mixture into balls (about a half cup each).
Slide 8 small pieces of licorice under each to form the spider legs. Use frosting to “glue” Craisin® eyes onto spiders.
Makes 12 spiders.
