These super cute and super quick creepy chocolate spiders will look impressive at your Halloween party, but they really don’t take any time at all.

Time

About 25 minutes for preparation, plus 2 hours for chilling.

Ingredients

  • 12 cupcake cases
  • 200g dark chocolate, chopped
  • 30g unsalted butter
  • 30g golden syrup
  • 75g rice pops
  • 24 chocolate fingers
  • 1 small tube white writing icing, to decorate
  • Googly eye sweets, chocolate buttons, white chocolate drops or mini white marshmallows to decorate (depending on what is in your cupboard/you can find locally)

Method

Melt 150g of chocolate with the butter and golden syrup in glass bowl, over a pan of water.  Make sure you melt the chocolate slowly over a low heat, so that you don’t over cook the chocolate.

Remove the pan from the heat.  Add the rice pops to the bowl of chocolate mixture and combine until evenly coated.

Line a 12 hole cupcake tin with paper cases.  Evenly spoon the mixture into each case and press down with the back of a spoon.  Carefully cut 3 chocolate fingers in half and push 3 halves into each side of each rice pop mixture.  Make sure that you spread them out evenly.  Melt the remaining 50g of chocolate in the microwave or over a pan of water (about 1 min) and drizzle over the leg areas to ensure that they are firmly secured.  (see photo below)

Transfer the tray to the fridge and chill for about 2 hours.

When the legs are set, remove the tray from the fridge and flip the spiders upside down. Carefully remove the cupcake covers.  Use some melted chocolate or white icing to secure the chocolate bean, white chocolate drop or mini marshmallow eyes.  If you use chocolate allow time to set and maybe pop the spiders back in the fridge until serving.

Hope you enjoy making these!
