Rating 5 stars - based on 2 review(s)

Ingredients

  • Nori Sheets - 2 (availble asian market or asian aisle of supermarket, sold to make sushi)
  • Rice Syrup - 1 teaspoon
  • Vanilla Extract - 1/2 teaspoon
  • Black Chia Seeds - 2 Tablespoons (white is fine too)
  • Tahini - Black Tahini if possible to make the spiders eyes or nut butter
  • Sesame Seeds - Just a few to finish off the spiders eyes
  • Strawberries - Each Spider needs 1/2 small and 1/2 large strawberry, you can pre cut them and freeze them for a cold spider

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 170C non fan forced if possible
  • Stir 1 teaspoon of rice Syrup with 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • With dry hands lay 2 sheets of Nori sheets onto an oven tray or 2 (available at the Asian section of supermarket for making sushi)
  • With a pastry brush, give the nori sheets a very fine coating of the sweet mix
  • Sprinkle generously with black chia seeds (white is fine too)
  • Bake in the middle of the oven for 5-10 minutes until no longer moist (it is ok if the sides start to curl)
  • Remove and let cool on a rack
  • Once cooled and crispy use scissors to cut the nori sheets into spider legs (if you are making the Sweet Nori crisps as a snack you can cut them larger)
  • Place the "spider legs" under a large 1/2 strawberry
  • Get a smaller half strawberry and using a knife tip blob on 2 eyes using tahini (black tahini works well but any will do, or a nut butter)
  • Using the knife tip, stick on some sesame seeds to complete the eye
  • Put the spiders head along side it's body and you are ready to "scare" you little ones with a delicious afternoon treat
  • Store the remaining nori crisps in a ziplock bag, such a fabulous superfood snack with Chia and seaweed!
  • Enjoy xoxSha
