Makes about 25 spiders.
1 jar La Salamandra Milk Caramel
1/4 lb El Rey Bucare Dark Chocolate
1 lb Pecan Halves or 2 packages Equal Exchange Roasted & Salted Pecans
2 tablespoons Goji Berries
1 8 oz. bag pretzels
1. First, make the body. Place the Bucare chocolate on an individual serving plate. Dab a dollop of caramel—about a tablespoon—on top of the chocolate. Position one large, or two smaller, pecans on top of the caramel and press into place.
2. Then attach the legs. Snap 4 pretzels in half. Using the caramel to anchor them, arrange the pretzel halves around the spider’s body to form legs.
3. Finally, dip two goji berries into caramel and attach them to the spider’s body, creating super spooky red eyes!
Get creative with the ingredients depending on your children’s tastes. You could use nut butter in place of the caramel, licorice instead of pretzels, walnuts instead of pecans, or wafer cookies instead of chocolate.
