  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips, divided

  3. Stir in 8 cups popcorn until coated.
  4. Spread onto prepared pizza pan in irregular round shape, about 1-inch thick, to resemble spider web.
  5. Refrigerate about 15 minutes, or until firm.
  6. In microwave, melt remaining marshmallows about 20 seconds, or until melted. Using spatula, string strands of melted marshmallow over popcorn spider web to create cobweb effect.

    3/4 cup chocolate chips; cool slightly. In large bowl of remaining
    popcorn, pour chocolate over popcorn, folding gently to coat.

  10. Refrigerate 10-15 minutes, or until set.
  11. Melt remaining chocolate chips. Cut licorice into 1-inch lengths.
    Using small spoon, dab circles of chocolate onto spider web. Affix
    chocolate-coated popcorn onto chocolate circles. Affix licorice
    lengths to chocolate popcorn clusters to resemble spider legs.
  12. Refrigerate 15 minutes, or until set. To serve, cut into smaller
