Parenting
8 spiders

Ingredients

+ Add To Shopping List
20-oz. bag frozen strawberries, thawed
1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
8 chocolate wafer cookies
1 quart vanilla ice cream
About 22 chocolate licorice shoelaces
1 bottle
16 white-chocolate chips

Preparation

1. Puree strawberries, sugar, and lemon juice: Blend on medium speed until smooth. Refrigerate until serving time.

2. To make "bodies," place cookies on a waxed-paper-lined baking sheet. Put a small scoop of ice cream on top of each cookie and freeze until hard, about 30 minutes.

3. Remove bodies from freezer and poke 3-inch pieces of licorice into sides for legs. If ice cream is very hard, poke holes with a toothpick first. Freeze for a few minutes to harden.

4. Cover bodies with thick layer of chocolate sauce. Before sauce hardens, press 2 chocolate chips onto front of each one for eyes. Freeze again until ready to serve.

5. Pour strawberry puree onto plate; put spider in center.
