I love marshmallows... and I love creating in the kitchen, with my Mom. We had pretzels on the counter and my little sister was into the marshmallows. We are getting ready for our own party on Halloween so I told Mom about the idea and she helped me get the ingredients out and I put these together. They look inviting, taste delicious and hey - even a 6 year old can make them!
1 bag large marshmallows
1 bag pretzel sticks
1 cup milk chocolate chips
Melt chocolate in microwave (about 2 minutes on high). Stir until smooth. While chocolate is melting, carefully stick 4 pretzel sticks on one side of the large marshmallow and 4 pretzels into the other side of the marshmallow.
Place wax paper on a cookie sheet. Place marshmallow 'spiders' on the cookie sheet. Spoon 1 generous tablespoon of melted chocolate onto the white marshmallow to cover up and make the spider's body.
Use red hots for eyes and, if you want a black widow... don't forget to put a red hot on the underside of your spider! If you want 'double chocolate' why not use chocolate marshmallows?
Be creative... Once all the spiders are covered with chocolate, place your sheet in the fridge or freezer to set the chocolate. Once the chocolate is hard... they are ready to be the "Eeekkkk" at your Halloween party!
