Spooky Spider Brownies are a fun way to celebrate Halloween. Spiders and spider webs are easy to make with melted chocolate.
Halloween is right around the corner, are you ready? Do you dress up and go to a party? Are your kids set with their costumes? I think we are almost ready here. My son decided that he is going to be Poseidon for Halloween. He loves all of the Percy Jackson books and Greek mythology, so it is very fitting. My mom helped to make a toga for him, and he has a rope belt, a crown, and a wig/beard. I still need to spray paint the devil’s pitch fork silver, so it can be his trident. But I think that is all I have left to do. He is very excited, and ready for Halloween to be here!
To get in the Halloween spirit I decided to make some brownies and decorate them with spooky spider webs and spiders! I was a little nervous about how the spiders were going to turn out, but they were actually easier than I thought they would be. When it comes to crafts, I am not very talented. Most of the time, my projects look like something a 5 year old could do. Apparently I have no attention to detail. So the fact that these look like real spiders and real spider webs, say a lot with how easy they are. They would be great on top of cupcakes or sugar cookies too, not reserved for just brownies!
The spooky spiders are made from just melted chocolate. All you have to do is pour the melted chocolate into a zip top bag, then you just pipe a bunch of “7’s” onto parchment paper for the legs, and let them harden. As long as you are patient and let the chocolate harden, you can put these together very easily. To make the spider webs, you can trace a circle onto parchment paper, and then pipe the chocolate into the web. For a quick video to see the technique, check it out here.
