Spidey Cakes

Easy-peasy cupcakes with some flair.  Scare (or delight) your friends with these eight-legged treat freaks.

INGREDIENTS

- 1 package of chocolate cake mix
- 1 tub of chocolate icing
- 1 package of Reeses Pieces (or M&Ms)
- 1 package of black licorice

Bake the cupcakes according to the box's directions (not too hard to mess up).  Let cool completely.

1. Prepare the Legs:  take clean scissors and cut the licorice sticks long ways to make 2 long skinny pieces.  Then cut them in 4s so that you have 8 small pieces.

2. Ice the cakes.  Be liberal.

3. Create the monster: stick the legs into the side of the cakes firmly.  Apply 2 eyes (or 8) to the front.

Wa-la! Spidey Cakes. Display with plastic spider rings for an extra creepy effect.
