Chocolate Spiders

"My German friend Anja introduced me to these and they are fantastic. One of the fastest recipes going and very more-ish indeed. The cook time is usually the time needed in the fridge to let them set"

  1. These are SWEET, but tasty! I make them at Easter with butterscotch chips (eegads...even sweeter!) and form them into "nests" with jelly beans for eggs! Kids absolutely love them! (and I see big people steal them from their kiddies' baskets!)
  2. These are great! I use crunchy peanut butter and I love them! I have never seen food in my house go so quick. Thanks for the recipe it is so good!
  3. around the festive season you can make them into more of a cone shape and place a small star on top for chocolate 'christmas trees' Yum!


I'm an ex-pat NZer living in the tropical Top End of Australia. Which makes it a perfect place to make homemade bread and summer recipes all year around. I experiment on my 3 kids who have grown up trying new Zaar recipes every other day and they are thriving. I'm the lacto-ovo vegetarian in the family and somehow I got roped in to become a Forum Host here at Zaar. So check out the Vegetarian and Vegan Forum and feel free to join in whether you are a fully fledged vegan or someone who needs to cater for a vegetarian and has no idea where to start. Every year I try to do something a bit different to push the envelope a little bit. In 2005 I learned how to sail a dinghy; 2006's grand passion is mosaics. Check out my blog! Between raising three children, working almost fulltime and trying to pursue my hobbies...let's say that my time management skills have greatly improved over the years! I am also very interested in living a sustainable lifestyle. Essentially I'm finding that I'm getting back to the country lifestyle I enjoyed in my childhood even though these days I live in themiddle of suburbia. To this end I have started gardening although I am a total gardening virgin when it comes to gardening in a tropical climate. I also have a cookbook with a number of recipes you can make from scratch. Living clean and green is good for you AND cheaper!
