¼ cup (60 mL) butter
1 bag (300g) marshmallows
½ cup (125 mL) brown sugar
I tsp (5 mL) vanilla
6 cups (1.5 L) crispy cocoa flavoured rice cereal
Black licorice strips cut into 96 2 inch (50 mm) pieces
24 Ocean Spray® Craisins ®Original Dried Cranberries
¼ cup (60 mL) vanilla frosting
TO MAKE SPIDER BASE:
Spray a 10 x 15 inch (25 x 40 cm) jelly roll pan 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 (125 mL) each).
Slide 8 small pieces of licorice under each to form the spider legs. Use frosting to “glue” Craisin ® dried cranberry eyes onto spiders.
