Spooky Spider Crackers


crackersThe first time I made this recipe, it was for a kids Halloween party eight years ago. It was a huge hit and the Mom appreciated a non-sweet treat.

If you think the kids will gawk at the noodle legs, you can always use….


The recipe uses items that you probably have in your pantry except for the noodles and you can always use pretzel sticks for the legs if you do not want to go buy chow mein noodles. I love the noodles because of their wiry shapes so they as a bit of dimension and spookiness to the ‘spiders’. BOO!

Ingredients (per ‘spider’)
2 round crackers
peanut or any nut butter
8 chow mein noodles
2 raisins

Smear a small amount of peanut butter onto the inside of one cracker. Place 4 chow mein noodles on one side of the cracker followed by 4 more on the other side. Place the remaining cracker on top. To make the ‘eyes': dab two spots of peanut butter near the top of one crackers to ‘glue’ the raisins into place.
