  1. Melt white chocolate and pour it in a squeeze bottle.

  2. Line a cookie tray with wax paper and draw an “x” with your squeeze bottle.
  3. Then, make a “plus” sign.
  4. Now, connect the lines to create a spider web design. It's best to start on the inside and work your way outside. Also, make sure the lines you are drawing are thick coz if not, the web will not be strong.

  5. Place this tray in the freezer for 5 minutes or until the webs harden. 

  6. Gently, use a spatula to remove the spider webs from the wax paper.
  7. To make the chocolate spiders, melt dark chocolate and pour it into a squeeze bottle.

  8. Line a cookie tray with parchment paper.
  9. Pour a small blob of chocolate on the wax paper (about 1 inch diameter). This will be the body of the spider.

  10. Before this blob hardens, attach some chocolate sprinkles to the sides or pipe them out with chocolate. These will be the legs of your spider.

  11. Also, toss some sprinkles on top of the chocolate spider.

  12. Place this tray in the freezer for 5 minutes and then gently, peel the spiders away from the wax paper. 

  13. Use a spatula to roughly frost your cupcakes.

  14. Stick the chocolate web into the center of the cupcake and use a bit of melted chocolate to attach the spider to the web or you can just place it on the cupcake too. Enjoy!
