Spider Web Crunch with Marzipan Snake
1 cup peanut butter, divided use
½ cup sugar
½ cup light corn syrup
2 ½ cups corn flakes
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
¼ cup confectioners’ sugar, sifted
1 3.35-ounce chocolate covered Marzipan log
Place ¼ cup peanut butter in a zip top bag to use later.
Combine sugar and syrup in a microwave safe bowl, heat on high 1-2 minutes, or until sugar is dissolved.
Stir in remaining ¾ cup peanut butter, mix well.
Gently stir in corn flakes.
While mixture is still warm put into a 9-inch pie plate, press down firmly in the center to create a slightly raised edge.
Heat chocolate chips in microwave at 50% power, stirring every minute until smooth and creamy.
Stir in confectioners’ sugar and then pour over peanut butter cereal mixture, spread to edge.
Cut a tiny corner of peanut butter filled bag and squeeze to pipe concentric circles on chocolate.
Pull tip of a sharp knife through peanut butter from the center to the edge to form the web design.
Chill at least 30 minutes to harden chocolate.
Meanwhile, roll the Marzipan log into a snake, about 18 inches long. Taper one end for the tail, with a thicker end for the head.
The Marzipan may harden if exposed to the air for long, so work quickly.
Place Marzipan Snake atop the spider web.
Optional fake spider.
