Apple Spiders

After our spider web fun, I made the kids these Flickr inspired , apple snacks.


For the webs, I used drizzled lines of butterscotch ice cream topping. Though of course, caramel would work, too.


The spider bodies are quartered apples, with the core removed.






The legs are another quarter apple, for each spider, cut into four slices, then in half again.

And, the eyes, are half a marshmallow each, just kind of stuck onto the top of the apple, topped with chocolate chips.

Raisins would be healthier, but who am I kidding?

It's great to be a homeschooler.

I love them. My kids would not eat the raisins either. These will be a hit in my house - my kids love to dip apple slices in caramel or butterscotch.
