AHHHH....Chocolate Spiders!!

Today was National Chocolate Covered Insects Day!! Since the sound of crunching on REAL bugs didn't sound too appealing we decided to dip gummy spiders instead.

First we melted a cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips in the microwave.

Second Collin dipped the spiders into the chocolate. He had to sample a few on the way...

Line 'em up in a row!
The leftover chocolate can be used to make fun designs on the waxed paper.

A chocolate web for my little 8-legged friend.

Pause for a cute picture...

Whoa, we got chocolate webs everywhere!!

Now is the time to eat the spider in the chocolate cocoon.

Who knew spiders could taste so good?

What a fun project! Your boy looks absolutely delighted. I have to copy that for little nieces and nephews.
