Kids who tend to go for scary Halloween costumes, fake blood and all, will get the best kind of chill from these creepy crawly cupcakes, anything but sweet itsy bitsy spiders. To make the spidery legs, slightly twist the shoestring licorice when you’re cutting it into 2-inch pieces. Make sure you stick them far enough into the cupcake so they stay put; you don’t want any lost legs when someone goes to pick one up. Another tip: to quickly crush a bunch of chocolate cookies at the same time, use the flat bottom of a bowl or measuring cup.
1 vanilla cupcake with vanilla frosting
2 chocolate cookies or wafers, crushed (about 2 tablespoons)
1 red Jujubes or other gummy candy, halved crosswise
16 inches black shoestring licorice, cut into 2-inch pieces
Sat fat 15g
How to Make It
Place the cookie crumbs in a small bowl. Dip the cupcake in the crumbs to coat. Place the Jujube pieces on the cupcake to make the eyes.
Press the licorice pieces into the cupcake to make crazy legs, digging ends deep into the cupcake to secure.
