Transform packaged snack cakes into creepy crawlers. These treats take minutes and are a perfect Halloween-themed activity for cookie-loving kiddos.

How to Make It

Assemble spiders:

Step 2

Use a toothpick to poke eight holes in cake, insert licorice laces into holes and trim ends to desired length.

Step 3

Attach M&M's as eyes using dots of icing. Pipe dots of chocolate icing for pupils and create fangs by piping small bits of vanilla icing.

My children had so much fun making these spiders--and then eating them! It is a great family activity that we will be repeating in years to come.
