Ingredients

1
box (1 lb. 3.5 oz.) fudge brownie mix
Water, vegetable oil and eggs called for on brownie mix box
1
container (1 lb) vanilla creamy ready-to- spread frosting
1/4
cup semisweet chocolate chips
1
large black gumdrop

  • 1 Heat oven to 350°F. Line 12-inch pizza pan with foil; grease foil with shortening. Make brownie mix as directed on box, using water, oil and eggs. Spread batter in pan.
  • 2 Bake 26 to 30 minutes or until toothpick comes out almost clean. DO NOT OVERBAKE. Cool completely on cooling rack, about 1 hour.
  • 3 Frost brownie with vanilla frosting. Place chocolate chips in small resealable food-storage plastic bag. Place in bowl of very hot water; let stand until chips are melted. Cut off tiny corner of bag. To make spiderweb, pipe melted chocolate on frosting in spiral pattern, starting at center and keeping lines about 3/4 inch apart. Using toothpick or knife, draw lines outward through frosting, starting at center of brownie.
  • 4 Cut gumdrop crosswise into thirds. Place small rounded end, rounded side up, on brownie for spider body. Cut 4 thin strips from each remaining gumdrop slice for legs; place on each side of spider body.

Expert Tips

A gummy spider, available at candy shops in time for Halloween, is a good substitution for the gumdrop spider.

To melt the chocolate chips for the web design, place them in a small microwave-safe container. Microwave on HIGH for 30 seconds to 1 1/2 minutes, stirring once during cooking.
