Chocolate-Covered Bugs

1 package red-licorice whips

24 each soft caramel candies

6 oz. chocolate chips

1 C. colored sprinkles

1 C. red hots

1 C. sliced almonds

1 C. assorted decors and dragees

Line a baking sheet with waxed paper. Cut licorice into small pieces.

Use your hands to flatten each caramel into a small oval. Press bits of licorice onto 12 of the flattened caramels to make legs. Top each with a second caramel and press edges to seal. Put on prepared baking sheet.

Put chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on High about 1 minute. Stir and then microwave on High 1 minute longer. Remove from oven and stir until melted. Spoon melted chocolate over each candy. Decorate with nuts and candy.
