Beaten egg is usually brushed on biscuits before baking to give them a shiny finish or to help sprinkled sugar stuck to the tops.

Spooky Raisin Spiders

If you need a great treat for tomorrow, you definitely need to make these Spooky Raisin Spiders.  As I learned from the California Raisins blog, this treat costs just 40 cents per serving and has an equivalent to a serving of fruit!

Spooky Raisin Spiders
  • ½ cup California raisins
  • ⅓ cup Almond or Peanut Butter
  • 3 tablespoons Honey
  • 3 tablespoons Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
  • 1¾ cups cups brown rice crispy cereal
  • 1 oz semi sweet chocolate, melted
  • 96 tiny thin black licorice strips
  • 2 tablespoons powdered sugar
  • 24 small candies or frosting for eyes
  1. Place raisins, almond butter, honey, and cocoa powder in a food processor and process until a thick paste forms. Transfer to a larger bowl and stir in cereal. Press mixture into 12 balls and press lightly onto a foil or wax paper lined baking sheet.
  2. Spread a small amount of melted chocolate on the bottom of each ball and slide 8 small pieces of licorice under each to form the spider legs. Refrigerate until firm.
  3. Stir a few drops of water into powdered sugar to make a thick mixture to "glue" eyes onto the spiders.
