Huge Scary Spiders
Kids love to help make these spiders. These spiders are wonderful for Halloween parties, school functions, pumpkin festivals, and make really "cool" lunchbox snacks.

2 ounces unsweetened baking chocolate
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup margarine
1 cup sugar
1 egg, beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla
red baking candies or red hot candies

Preheat oven to 375°. 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 a spider, shape a 2 inch flat oval for the body. Make the spider's head by flattening a circle about 1/2 in diameter. Shape dough for eight legs, each about two 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 removing.
