I wanted to make something that had the perfect balance of easiness and craftiness, do you know what I mean? The ease of the rice krispie treats balances out the craftiness necessary for the precious little spiders.

Ingredients

The Rice Krispie Treats:

  • 1.5 T butter (or coconut oil for dairy free)
  • 2 c miniature marshmallows
  • 3 cups Rice Krispies cereal

The Spider Decorations:

  • 1/2 c miniature semi-sweet chocolate chips, melted
  • 12 miniature marshmallows

Instructions

The Rice Krispie Treats:

  1. In a medium pan on the stove on low heat, melt the butter and the marshmallows. Constantly stir until they are completely blended.
  2. Add the rice krispie cereal and stir until combined, then place in an ungreased 9×9 in square dish and allow to cool.
  3. Cut into 12 rectangles and place on parchment paper.

The Spider Decorations:

  1. Melt the chocolate chips (in a pan or in the microwave) and place in a piping bag or a Ziploc bag and cut the corner off. Just make sure you start small with the hole! You can always make it bigger 😉
  2. Pipe an X on the treats, then add another squattier x, making 8 legs total.
  3. Once all treats have their legs, cut a slightly larger hole in your bag, and pipe a circle for the spiders’ bellies.
  4. Cut each of the miniature marshmallows in half, and place them on the spiders’ bellies while the chocolate is still melted.
  5. Add a tiny dot of chocolate to the back of each miniature chocolate chip and place on the marshmallow eyes.
  6. Allow to cool completely and serve!
