California Raisin Marketing Board


1/2 cup California raisins
1/3 cup almond or peanut butter
3 tablespoons each: honey and unsweetened cocoa powder
1 3/4 cups brown rice crispy cereal
1 ounce 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 or peanut butter, honey and cocoa powder in a food processor and process until a thick paste forms.
  2. Transfer to a large bowl and stir in cereal, using your hands to mix in completely. Press mixture into 12 balls, then press lightly onto a foil or wax paper lined baking sheet.
  3. Spread a small amount of melted chocolate on the bottom of each and slide 8 small pieces of licorice under each to form the spider legs; refrigerate until firm.
  4. Stir a few drops of water into powdered sugar to make a thick mixture to “glue” eyes onto spiders.
