Instructions Checklist
  • In a food processor, combine the dried plums, dates, nut butter, and sesame seeds. Cover and process until the mixture becomes a thick paste. Cover and chill for at least 20 minutes.

  • Place the coconut in a small bowl. Using 2/3 of the date mixture, form 12 balls. Flatten the balls slightly into the shape of a spider body. Using the remaining 1/3 of the date mixture, form 12 smaller balls to make spider heads. Press the spider heads on to the spider bodies. Gently roll spiders in the coconut, pressing to adhere.

  • Using a toothpick, poke 4 small holes on one side of the spider's body and 4 holes on the opposite side. Press one 2-inch length of the licorice into each of the 8 holes. Squeeze the date mixture gently to ensure that the licorice is secured. Repeat with remaining spiders and licorice.

  • Press 2 chocolate pieces into each head to create the eyes. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to one day.
