The Freshman Cook: Chocolate Spider Webs

This is so simple, yet so delicate and pretty. It’s also a reminder to me that the spider is very artistically talented!  Way more so than me!!

Chocolate Spider Webs!

(to make 1 spider) 

12 Thin Pretzel Sticks

1 Gummie Spiders

2 blocks of White Chocolate( or something similar)

Chop some of the white chocolate, and

melt the white chocolate in a double boiler.

To make your own double boiler, place a small saucepan

over a large saucepan. Put a couple inches of water in 

the large pan and bring the water to a low boil.

Make sure the top sauce pan sits on the large pan, 

and does not fall in.

While the chocolate is melting, set your pretzels

on a piece of parchment paper, on a baking 

sheet, to look like a wheel spoke.

Fill a pastry bag with a #3 (Wilton) tip. Pipe a center

that will connect all the pretzel spokes. 

Then starting at the center, make circles around

the pretzels, and continue the circles all the way out.

Place a spider in the center of the web.

Put in the refrigerator(still on the baking sheet)

until it chills and hardens.

Once hard, carefully peel off the parchment paper.

Happy Halloween!!
