Large chocolate cookies shaped like spiders. The kids love them.
INGREDIENTS (for 1 servings):
- 2 (1 ounce) squares unsweetened chocolate
- 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 cup butter
- 1 cup white sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 40 cinnamon red hot candies
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Lightly grease baking sheet.
In a saucepan melt chocolate over low heat. Let cool.
In a small bowl mix flour, baking powder and salt.
In a medium bowl beat margarine on low speed until smooth. Add sugar and beat until creamy. Stir in egg, vanilla and chocolate. Add flour mixture and mix well, forming a stiff dough.
To make spider, shape a 2 inch flat oval for the body. Make the spider's head by flattening a circle about 1/2 inch wide. Shape dough for legs each about 2 inches long and less than 1/4 inch wide.
Attach the head and legs to body. Put two red candies into head for eyes. Bake for 5-8 minutes. Let spiders cool on baking sheet to avoid breaking when moving.
