Spider Bites – Braces Friendly Halloween Recipes

Spider Bites

Recipe idea adapted from
“The Braces Cookbook”
by Pamela Waterman
Makes: Approx 36 treats

1 cup shortening
1 cup sugar
2 Tbsp. water
1 Tsp. vanilla
2 eggs
2 cups all-purpose flour
½ cup cocoa
1 Tsp. salt
½ Tsp. baking powder
1 package black rope licorice, cut into 1-inch pieces**
1 small tube of white (or color of choice) frosting

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

In a large bowl, combine shortening, sugar, water, and vanilla. Beat until smooth.
Add eggs into the mixture and blend. Slowly mix in flour, cocoa, salt and baking powder
using low-medium speed. Drop tablespoon helpings of mixture onto ungreased cookie
sheets and roll each helping into a ball.

Bake 9 minutes at 375 degrees. The batch should produce around three dozen cookies.

Let cookies cool for about 10 minutes. Then using a toothpick, create four small holes
in either side of the cookie. Still using the toothpick, push one end of a piece of the cut
licorice into each hole, creating the “legs” of the spider. Once all eight pieces are in place,
create eyes or decorate at will using the white frosting. Then eat and enjoy!

**Licorice can sometimes stick to braces; parents should monitor
