Tasty Just Got a Terrifying Twist!
I may have mentioned this before a few times – OK, I’m sure I did – but golly gosh I sure do love Halloween! And I love all the sweet and spooky treats you can make for Halloween that are great for parties, sharing with coworkers, or enjoying with friends and family during a horror movie marathon. My imagination often outpaces my skills in the kitchen, so I’ve been digging the depths of the internet for a Halloween treat that is both impressive and possible for me to make look like the picture. These two don’t always go hand-in-hand, so when I find one, I get pretty excited! And today I found one that is adorable and do-able – and the recipe sounds awesomely appetizing as well.
There are few animals more Halloween-y than the spider, and while I don’t normally associate them with the word ‘appetizing’, Spooky Scotcheroo Spiders aren’t your average arachnid. These creepy critters are packed with peanut butter and your choice of white or semi-sweet chocolate chips. I’m a big fan of white chocolate, so I’m leaning toward that variation, but I might cut the white chocolate chips in half and add in a cup of butterscotch chips. Then again, if I do that, I might also eat all 36 of these Halloween treats myself and end up with quite the bellyache, so we’ll see!
