A treat without tricks? These easy-to-make chocolate-peanut butter bars are perfect for friends, an office party or any hauntingly good gathering!

Ingredients

1
package Betty Crocker™ Supreme chocolate peanut butter bar mix
1/2
cup honey-roasted peanuts, chopped
3
tablespoons margarine or butter, softened
1
egg
Betty Crocker™ decorating icing
2
large gumdrops

Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 350ºF whether using metal or glass pan. Line square pan, 8x8x2 inches, with aluminum foil, leaving edge of foil above rim of pan; grease foil. Stir Peanut Butter Bar Mix, peanuts, margarine and egg in medium bowl (mixture will be like soft cookie dough). Spread in pan.
  • 2 Bake 8-inch pan 18 to 22 minutes, 9-inch pan 17 to 23 minutes, or until top is light golden brown. Cool completely, about 1 hour. Lift out foil and bars; pull foil away from sides of uncut bars for easier frosting and decorating.
  • 3 Squeeze packet of Frosting about 10 seconds. Cut off one corner of packet. Squeeze frosting onto bars; spread evenly using back of teaspoon. To make spider web design, pipe decorating icing (using plain tip) starting at top corners of uncut bars. Or pipe icing beginning with small circle in center and encircling with larger circles, each 1/2 inch outside the other. Immediately pull a knife through icing from center outward 8 times in evenly spaced lines.
  • 4 To make spider, roll 1 gumdrop on heavily sugared surface into oval, 1/8 inch thick; cut into 8 strips for legs. Press other gumdrop on top for body. Place spider on bars. For 12 bars, cut into 4 rows by 3 rows.
Tips  

To cut perfectly even squares of these spooky treats, use a ruler to measure and toothpicks to mark the cutting lines.

Here's an easy way to chop peanuts or other nuts: Place nuts in a resealable plastic food-storage bag; squeeze out the air and seal the bag. Set the bag on an even surface and use a rolling pin to roll back and forth over the nuts until they're the right size.
