Halloween Spider Sandwiches Recipe


8 slices whole wheat sandwich bread

1/2 cup softened cream cheese

32 pretzel sticks, thin carrot strips

and/or thin celery strips

8 raisins


Substitute flavored cream cheese or peanut

butter for the cream cheese.


Cut out the spider bodies

Use a 21/2-inch cookie cutter to cut a circle from each slice of

bread. Place the circles on a cutting board.

Add the spread

Spread the cream cheese on half of the bread circles using a

table knife.

Decorate the spiders

Place eight pretzel sticks on the side of the bread circles for the

spider legs. Place the remaining bread circles on top. Press two

raisins into each circle to be the eyes. Draw a web on a paper

plate with a black marker and place the spiders on the plate to

serve. You can also serve the spiders on a round wire rack to

resemble the spider web.
