Prep Time : 1:55 | Cook Time : 0:02 | Total Time : 1:57 | Serving : 12 person.

Ingredients

  • 80g white marshmallows

  • 40g unsalted butter

  • 1 tablespoon caster sugar

  • 1 tablespoon cocoa powder

  • 2 cups cocoa puffed rice cereal

  • 240g packet licorice straps (see note)

For 6 spiders

  • 1 tube Cake Mate red writing icing

  • 12 red mini M&Ms

For 6 bats

  • 1 tube Cake Mate blue writing icing

  • 12 blue mini M&Ms

Method

  • Step 1

    Lightly grease an oven tray. Place marshmallows, butter, sugar and cocoa powder in a saucepan over low heat. Cook, stirring, for 2 minutes or until melted. Place rice cereal in a bowl. Add marshmallow mixture and stir to combine.

  • Step 2

    Make spiders: Cut twenty-four 7cm-long, thin strips from licorice. Using damp hands, shape 1 tablespoon of crackle mixture into a 5cm round. Lay 4 licorice strips across round, overhanging evenly on each side. Sandwich with another round of crackle mixture. Use icing to secure M&Ms as eyes. Place on prepared tray. Repeat with remaining crackle mixture, licorice strips, icing and M&Ms to make 5 more spiders.

  • Step 3

    Make bats: Using the template (see notes) as a guide, cut twelve 7cm-long ‘wings’ from licorice. Using damp hands, shape 2 tablespoons of crackle mixture into a 8cm-long oval. Place tips of licorice wings on long sides. Sandwich with another 2 tablespoons of crackle mixture. Use icing to secure M&Ms as eyes. Place on prepared tray. Repeat with remaining crackle mixture, licorice wings, icing and M&Ms to make 5 more bats.

  • Step 4

    Refrigerate spiders and bats for 1 hour or until set. Serve.
