Halloween Recipe: Spooky Raisin Spiders

California Raisins posted a great recipe for Halloween that I just had to share!

Raisin Spooky Spiders v3


* 1/2 cup California raisins
* 1/3 cup almond butter*
* 3 tablespoons honey
* 3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
* 1-3/4 cups crispy brown rice cereal
* 1 ounce semi-sweet chocolate, melted
* 96 tiny thin black licorice strips
* 2 tablespoons powdered sugar
* 24 small candies or frosting; for eyes


Measure raisins, almond butter, honey, and cocoa powder into food processor bowl with metal blade and process until smooth. Transfer to large bowl and stir in cereal by hand to mix completely. Divide and shape into 12 balls; arrange on foil or wax paper-lined baking sheet. Press down to flatten bottoms; turn and spread small amount of melted chocolate on each bottom and attach 8 small licorice pieces to form legs; chill until firm. Stir few drops of water into powdered sugar and glue on candies or make eyes for spiders.

Note : Peanut butter makes good spiders, too.
