Ritz Spider made with peanut butter for the body while pretzel sticks stuck into the peanut butter make the legs. Spread more peanut butter atop, add sprinkles and 2 currants to each for eyes.
12 Ritz Crackers
1/4 cup peanut butter, divided<
48 small pretzel sticks
12 currants or small candies
Spread each of 6 crackers with 1 teaspoon of the peanut butter; cover with second cracker to form "spider's body."
Insert 8 pretzel sticks into the peanut butter layer of each spider for the "legs." Spread 1 teaspoon of the remaining peanut butter onto top of each spider.
Decorate with sprinkles, then add 2 currants to each for the "eyes." Also, use your imagination - you can make these up in as many ways as your imagination comes up with! It's fun - kids love to help, too.
Substitute: Prepare as directed, using Ritz Reduced Fat Crackers and reduced fat peanut butter, or all natural peanut butter.
Recipe makes 6 servings, 1 spider each.
