  • Prepare cake batter as directed on package. Blend in dry pudding mix. Spoon into 24 paper-lined muffin cups. Bake as directed on package for cupcakes. Cool completely.
  • Dissolve drink mix in hot water. Stir into frosting until well blended. Use to frost cupcakes, reserving some of the frosting for attaching the decorations.
  • Cut each licorice piece into 16 (2-inch) lengths; set aside. Place 1 cookie on top of each cupcake; insert 4 licorice pieces into frosting on each side of cookie for the spider's legs. Use reserved frosting to attach chocolate pieces to tops of cookies for the spiders' eyes.

    very good, made these for my halloween party and were a big hit! loved the icing, i disagree with posts that say it was too sweet. these looked great except most weren't fond of the black licorice....but the licorice was really just for decoration anyways

    I made this with my class. They were a big hit. I did NOT want to use the sweet orange stuff, just added a little bit of food colouring to the icing instead. The legs were tricky to stick in the cookies so we put the legs on the icing and then put the Oreo, etc., on top.
