A fun little treat for Halloween and so easy the kids can do it.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Oh, the kiddos (and adults) in your life are going to love these treats for Halloween. The little chocolate pudding pie is the spider's body and is similar to dirt pudding. They're adorable, delicious, and easy to make. For some reason, we had a problem finding shoestring licorice. We used regular sticks of licorice and cut them into smaller pieces for the spider legs.
