I made these for my twin 5 year olds' Kindergarten Party at school. The kids all loved them! Of course, I did make some changes to the recipe. . .
I used 1 bag of milk chocolate morsels and one bag on butterscotch morsels melted together in the microwave, 1/2 a pretzel stick for each leg, mini M&Ms for the eyes, and only about 1/2 of a large marshmallow for the body.
I put a dallop of chocolate on waxed paper, added the pretzel legs (so they stuck out of the chocolate), and added the candy eyes, then transferred to the freezer for a couple of minutes to harden (it doesn't take long). After they were set (they looked like smooshed spiders-reminded me of the spiders in the Garfield comic strip after he smacks them with a newspaper!) I dipped a 1/2 a marshmallow in chocolate and set it on top of the "smashed spider" (not covering up the eyes, though!) which then gave it a "puffy spider" look. It was rather time consuming, but it was worth it because the kids really enjoyed it!
