- 1 cup roasted almonds
- 1 cup macadamias
- 3/4 cup 100% nut spread (peanut butter or mixed nut spread as preferred)
- 1 cup chopped dates
- 2 tablespoons cacao
- Coconut for coating
In a food processor, place macadamias, almonds, nut spread and cacao powder and process. Add dates and process until the mixture comes together. If the mixture is too dry, you can add a few drops of water and process again.
Sprinkle a few tablespoons of cacao onto a plate.
Roll the mixture into 16 balls, then roll into the cacao powder.
Press 2 white chocolate buttons into the spiders as eyes. Use the dark chocolate icing pen to dot eyeballs in the middle of the white chocolate buttons.
Break pretzels to make curved spider legs. Press 3 pretzel legs into the side of every spider so they curve downwards.
Allow the spiders to set in the fridge for an hour.
