Well, maybe because they are made of chocolate, but they sure don't look like it. They're scary and creepy. Don't forget to take a big piece of the spider web too. It's sticky, sweet and tastes just like cotton candy.
Let's get started by making the spider's body (chocolate truffle).
Add the chocolate and cream to a medium-size, microwave-safe bowl.
Give it a quick blast in the microwave to melt the chocolate, and stir until it's creamy.
Let the chocolate mixture chill in the fridge to thicken.
Now comes the fun part. Scoop out the chocolate, and roll it into balls with your hands.
Cut the black string candy into spider legs. I like when the legs are a little crooked to make it look like the spider is moving.
Right after adding the legs to the truffle, the spider starts to walk. Really, it does. You'll see.
So the spider can see where it's going, give it some eyes.
To make the spider more creepy, add some fuzzy cocoa powder hair to the top.
So that the spiders are nice and comfy, let them crawl on top of a spider web that looks and tastes just like cotton candy.
