Cute Cupcake Spiders, A Fun Halloween Recipe



I have to admit, I have SO MUCH FUN around Halloween and what's not to love about cupcakes?!  Donsuemor's minis are the cutest! Well, they were the cutest until we made them into the cutest little spiders ever!  They're also incredibly delicious... we played with them for a little while and then we ate them up. Check out our super fun recipe, get some Cute Cakes (the most delicious packaged mini-cupcakes) to try it for yourself, or simply turn store bought cupcake mix into adorableness.
 

CUTECAKE SPIDERS

Ingredients

Mini Cupcakes 
(or big ones will work, too, but they are not as cute)
Powdered Sugar
Pretzel Sticks
Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
*Small tube of black icing (optional)

Making the Spider's Legs

1. Heat a bowl of 1 cup of chocolate chips in the microwave for 45 seconds.
2. Stir the chocolate until it's well mixed and melted.
3. Bite tips off the pretzels so they'll poke into cupcakes easily. Coat the pretzels in the chocolate.
4. Lay the chocolate covered pretzels on a baking sheet covered in wax paper.
5. Stick them in the freezer for about 5 minutes to quickly dry them.

In the meantime...

1. Mix 1 cup of powdered sugar with 2 tbsp. water. This is going to be "glue."
2. Dab 2 spots of "glue" onto each cupcake where the spiders' faces will be.
3. Stick one chocolate chip onto each spot of glue to make the eyes.

Then...

1. Stick the pretzel legs into the cupcakes. Everyone knows spiders have 8 legs but 6 legs fit much better around a cupcake. Don't worry. They'll be just as cute & just as delicious!
Note: Don't stick the pretzels in too far or the cupcakes will split in the center.
2. Draw little mouths on the spiders with the black icing if it suits your fancy.
3. Eat them up... if you don't think they're too adorable for eating!
