How to Make It

Step 1

Line a 9 x 5 inch loaf pan with foil; set aside. In a small cup, mix 2 drops each of red, blue, and green food coloring. Pour the coconut in a zip-close plastic bag and add the food coloring mixture. Seal the bag and shake to color coconut. Use clean safety scissors to cut licorice into 48 one-inch pieces. Set all of this aside.

Step 2

In a medium-sized microwave-safe bowl, mix chocolate chips, sweetened condensed milk and salt. Microwave on high for 3 minutes, stirring well after each minute, until chocolate is completely melted. Stir mixture until smooth.

Step 3

Spread evenly into prepared pan. Chill in fridge until firm (1 hour).

Step 4

Lift fudge out of the pan by the foil and place on cutting board. Parent should cut fudge into 12 equal squares, using large, heavy knife. Roll each square into a ball between your palms, then roll balls into colored coconut. Stick two balls together to for the tarantula's body and set on a cookie sheet lined with waxed paper. Stick 8 pieces of licorice inot each body for legs.
