SPOOKY SCOTCHEROO SPIDERS

(recipe makes 36 treats)

INGREDIENTS:
– 1 cup Karo® Light OR Dark Corn Syrup
– 1 cup sugar
– 1 cup creamy peanut butter
– 6 cups crispy rice cereal
– 2 cups semi-sweet OR white chocolate chips
– String licorice
– Small candies for eyes

DIRECTIONS:
Combine corn syrup and sugar together in a large pan over medium heat, stirring to dissolve sugar. Bring mixture to a boil. Remove from heat. Stir in peanut butter; mix well. Add cereal; stir until evenly coated. Let cool in pan for 5 minutes.

Coat hands with butter or spray with cooking spray. Form mixture into 1-inch balls and place on waxed paper. Cool for 30 minutes.

Place chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on HIGH (100%) 1 to 2 minutes, stirring frequently until chocolate is melted.

Use a wooden skewer or pick to make 3 to 4 small holes on each side of the ball. Cut licorice into 1-1/2 to 2-inch lengths. Dip one end of each length of licorice in chocolate; then insert each “leg” in hole.

*****

ENJOY! :)

Carefully frost top of each spider with the melted chocolate. Finish with two colored candies for eyes. Cool at least 1-1/2 hours, until chocolate is completely set.
