MAKES 20 SPIDERS
Brownie Mix baked in a 9-by-13-inch pan
20 violet plastic forks
Cups chopped chocolate cookies chocolate graham crackers, Famous Chocolate Wafers) not Oreo’s
1 can (16 ounces) plus 1 cup chocolate frosting
1 bag (14 ounces) plus 1 cup white candy melting wafers (Wilton)
Large red and purple sprinkles (Wilton)
1/2 cup canned vanilla frosting
Line a cookie sheet with waxed paper. Remove the whole brownie from the pan and remove the foil. Using a small knife or a I l 2-inch round cookie cutter, cut out as many circles as possible from the brownie, reserving the scraps around 20 circles . Transfer the circles to the cookie sheet. Gently insert a plastic fork into the top of each brownie circle, on the back edge (see photo), and refrigerate until ready to assemble.
Pulse the brownie scraps in a food processor until finely chopped. Transfer to a medium bowl Add the chopped cookies to the food processor and pulse until ground. Transfer the crumbs to a shallow bowl.
Spoon 1 2 cup of the chocolate frosting into a Ziploc bag. Press out the excess air and seal the bag. Spoon 3 4 cup of the remaining chocolate frosting into the bowl with the brownie crumbs and stir until the mixture holds together. For the spider heads, shape the mixture into twenty I-inch balls. Press the balls into the cookie crumbs to coat, then flatten slightly.
Spoon the remaining chocolate frosting into a 2-cup glass measuring cup. Microwave, stopping to stir frequently, until it has the texture of lightly whipped creamy, 20 to 30 seconds. Holding chilled brownie circle by the fork, dip the brownie into the melted frosting to cover completely allowing the excess frosting to drip back into the bowl. Transfer the brownie to the cookie crumbs and coat completely. Return to the cookie sheet. Repeat with the remaining brownie circles.
If the melted frosting becomes too thick for dipping, microwave for several seconds,
