So, the Mr. is having a Halloween thing at work so I am practicing the dessert I have picked to make. The first attempt, though delicious was not quite how I wanted them to turn out aesthetically. Here is a picture of the batch entire, some made up, some not:
They turned out WAY bigger than they should have been, which would account for the recipe saying “yields 25-30” and I yielded only 18. They resemble ticks more than they do tarantulas. Here are some close ups:
“Nuclear Green Tarantula”:
“Pile of Naked Tarantulas”:
The recipe and DECENT pictures can be found at epicurious.com. I will post a new, and hopefully smaller more tarantula shaped attempt probably the day before Halloween.
OH and don’t be an ass about the legs on the spiders. This was a TEST RUN and yeah, some of the legs fell off. So sue me.
