This delicious treat couldn't be any easier to prepare but is impossible to resist.

For making Haystacks, otherwise known as Chocolate Spiders, just melt the chocolate and stir in the rest of the ingredients. Drop onto a prepared work surface. Once they harden, they are ready to eat. In fact, the most difficult part about this recipe is getting everyone to wait long enough for that to happen.

  • 12 ounce package semisweet chocolate chips
