Ritz Spider

Recipe Ingredients

12 Ritz Crackers
1/4 cup peanut butter, divided<
48 small pretzel sticks
Halloween sprinkles
12 currants or small candies

Recipe Directions

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.
