Chocolate Cockroaches.

These little cockroaches are a delicious addition to your Halloween treat table, and they are so easy to make. Plus they kind of went with my costume, birds love to crunch on bugs!

I cut up some no name grape licorice strings into 6 cm lengths and set them in threes on a parchment lined baking sheet. Let them curl so two point back and one points forward.

Then I melted some big bars of Presidents Choice chocolate in a double boiler and spooned a small dollop onto the middle of the licorice strings.
Now it looks like a body and legs.

Here Maggs is helping by dropping a mini Rolo head onto the front of each critter and a Presidents Choice praline onto the back of each one to make the body and closed up wings.
They were pretty delicious!
