[Braces-friendly recipes] Spider Bites

SPIDER BITES

Ingredients
1          cup shortening 2 cups all-purpose flour
1          cup sugar ½ cup cocoa
2          Tbsp. water 1 tsp. salt
1          Tsp. vanilla ½ tsp. baking powder
2          eggs 1 package black rope licorice cut into short 1” pieces
1          small tube of green (or color of choice) decorating gel
            Toothpicks
Directions
Preheat oven to 375ºF.
In a large bowl, combine shortening, sugar, water, and vanilla. Beat until smooth. Add eggs into the mixture and blend.
Slowly mix in flour, cocoa, salt and baking powder using low-medium speed.
Drop tablespoon helpings of mixture onto ungreased cookie sheets and roll each helping into a ball.
Bake 9 minutes at 375 degrees. The batch should produce around three dozen cookies.
Let cookies cool for about 10 minutes. Then using a toothpick, create four small holes in either side of the cookie.

Still using the toothpick, push one end of a piece of the cut licorice into each hole, creating the “legs” of the spider. Keep licorice pieces short so as not to harm braces.
