The trick behind these foolproof Halloween treats is a squeeze bottle. Snip its tip to make the opening slightly larger; then fill it with batter, making sure there are no lumps. To create a web, form an asterisk with the batter on a hot griddle, and connect the points and arms of the stars in two rows. For the spider, squirt two connected circles, and add eight legs. The bottle can also be used to easily create letters and faces, changing your pancake game -- and making you a superstar in your kids' eyes -- for many weekends to come.
