So firstly i used brown m&m's for the body and cut thin strips of licorice straps for the legs.
I laid the spiders onto baking paper and added a lollipop stick to the end of each one. Then i made a batch of toffee....
3 cups caster sugar, 1 cup water, and 1/4 cup vinegar bought to the boil for about 15 mins
or until golden
I gently poured the toffee mixture over the spiders, making sure to coat the stick and whole of spiders. Leave to cool at room temp for 15 mins the pull away from baking paper.
They didn't take long at all, the hardest part was the fiddly eight legs but the look great and the toffee really added to the spookiness by looking like zap from a tree. I found the FREE Halloween jar printable on this great site here... http://embellishinglifeeveryday.blogspot.com.au/
