Spider Web Munch
1 12-oz. package (2 cups) semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1/3 cup powdered sugar
3 cups toasted rice cereal
In small heavy-duty saucepan, heat chocolate chips and ¾ cup of the peanut butter over low heat, stirring constantly, until smooth. Remove from heat. Add powdered sugar and stir vigorously until smooth.
Place cereal in large bowl. Add 1 cup of the melted chocolate mixture and stir until cereal is evenly coated. Place on ungreased baking sheet. Using small metal spatula, shape into 10-inch circle and make a slightly raised 1-inch-wide border. Pour remaining melted chocolate mixture in center of circle and spread to the border.
For spider web, place remaining ¼ cup peanut butter in heavy-duty plastic food bag. Cut tiny corner from bag, and squeeze to pipe concentric circles on top of chocolate. Using wooden pick or tip of a sharp knife, pull tip through peanut butter from center to border to create the spider web. To create a real Halloween spirit, top frosting with a fake spider. Chill 30 minutes or until firm. Cut into wedges to serve.
Makes 12 to 16 servings.
