Squishy Spiders

Super Easy!


1. 1 box Profiteroles* (see photo) or donut holes

2. Vanilla sticks (see photo) or Pocky

3. Icing (see photo) – needs to be the kind of icing that hardens. 

4. Small round candies (M&Ms, Smarties, or Skittles)

* Profiteroles are little chocolate-covered cream puffs filled with custard, found with frozen desserts at the grocery store.

*I don’t have a picture of the candies because I ate them all… oops… 


1. Follow defrosting instructions for profiteroles (if applicable)

2. Break each stick into 4 equal pieces and then poke into profiterole to make spider     legs.

3. Attach candies with frosting.

4. Use black frosting to make pupils (if desired). 



Even Easier!

Big Black Hairy Moles

For an easier (and more disgusting) recipe, just poke several sticks in to the profiteroles randomly and don’t bother attaching eyes. 

If you prefer savory and not sweet…
