I came across this “spiders” recipe on Just Ask Boo and immediately had to make it. Salty and sweet heaven. Try them for yourself! See the recipe below from Just Ask Boo.
- 2 bags of butterscotch morsels (Publix makes them, so does nestle)
- One can of salted cocktail peanuts
- One can of Chinese chow mein noodles - not the tall can, the med size one
- If you don't have a double boiler, put about 6 inches of water in a pan, and put a pyrex bowl or pie dish over it. Leave an inch or 2 between the water and the pyrex dish. (If you do have a double boiler, this is even easier.)
- Boil the water on the stove, which will melt the morsels in the pyrex.
- Once you boil the water, you can turn the heat down a bit. Not bubbling but still hot.
- Stir the morsels so there are no more lumps. Should be smooth.
- Mix in the peanuts.
- Once it's all mixed, add the noodles. Gently fold them in so you don't break them.
- Use a rubber spatula or spoon or your hand (everyone does it their own way) to form the little spiders, about 1/3 - π the size of your fist, and put them on wax paper on a cookie sheet.
- Let them cool in the fridge over night.

More than 75 people came out for the private book signing event with Vicky Tiel, the celebrity designer who designed Elizabeth Taylor’s caftan dresses, the red dress worn by Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman and many more. Her book “It’s All About the Dress: what I learned in forty years about men, women, sex and fashion” was a huge hit with the guests. On display was one of Elizabeth Taylor’s dresses, the red dress from Pretty Woman, Jamie’s wedding dress, the August bride that Vicky designed and a few others. Host Elizabeth Fago loaned me one of Vicky’s dresses to wear too! Classic Bookshop from Palm Beach provided the books and Vicky drew a sketch of a woman in one of her dresses in each book as well as signed them. Vicky also has a few of her celebrity friends’ recipes throughout the book so we served Sophia Loren’s Pasta along with some other light bites. If you would like to purchase her book it is available at Classic Bookshop in Palm Beach, amazon.com or barnesandnoble.com. You can also catch Vicky on HSN April 19 selling Elizabeth Taylor’s signature caftan look, her book, dress line and perfume.
