Last Post at Creepy House: Spooky Spider Crispy Cakes

Well, it's been an absolutely amazing week talking to you all here at Creepy House, but it's time for someone else to introduce themselves on Monday and for me to say goodbye. I'll still be here to answer your comments and questions til the end of Sunday so keep it coming! I'll leave you with a few last book recommendations and something yummy to make. These are super easy, rather creepy, and completely yummy, so we're sharing the recipe here for you all to try. We've been making them in our cafe  workshops here in Cullompton, Devon.

Is your library doing anything crafty this week? Let us know what you've been making!

Don't forget to explore the rest of the Creepy House website for games, a competition, and interesting videos.  Have you tried "Charlottes' Web" by E.B.White, "Spider Stampede" in the S.W.I.T.C.H series by Ali Sparkes, "The Very Busy Spider" by Eric Carle, or "Aaaarrgghh, Spider!" by Lydia Monks, which is a lot of fun. See what you think and let us know!

100g chocolate - dark or milk.
60g butter
3 table spoons golden syrup
90g Rice Krispies
Small marshmallows for eyes
Shoe-lace sweets for legs and mouth
Black icing (from a tube if possible.)

1) Melt the chocolate slowly in the microwave, 10 seconds at a time, stirring each time.
2) Add the butter, making sure it melts.
3) Add the syrup and then the Rice Krispies, mix well.
4) Make into balls and put into cake cases.
5) Using a little black icing, attach 8 legs and marshmallow eyes.

TIP: Allow to cool slightly at step 5 to make the balls easier to form.
