One thing I notice about lots of Halloween-themed baked goods is that they often require fondant skills – something that I definitely don’t have. While I wish that I had the dexterity to craft mini pumpkins or witches hats out of fondant, I just don’t. So I stick to basic decorations… chocolate I can work with! The great thing about these spider webs is that you don’t even need a piping bag, you can just use a snaplock bag.
They’re versatile too – I fitted them over some chocolate pumpkin bundts or perched them on some delicious cream cheese icing and they looked good both ways!
Chocolate spider webs:
- 45g dark chocolate
Print out spider web template, or use your own. Set it on a baking tray and then fit a sheet of baking paper over the top. Melt chocolate and spoon into a snap lock bag. Dab some of the melted chocolate on the corners of the baking paper to secure it to the baking tray. Snip the tip of the snap lock bag off and start piping! Pipe out the rings of the spider web, then the straight lines. Repeat as many times as desired.

I hear you – I don’t do fondant or icing or anything complicated. These webs look amazing 🙂
Oh thank you! I prefer simple additions to my baking – plus, I like the taste of chocolate more than fondant 😛
Believe or not, I was waiting for some of your amazing decorations! You’re really talented Gab!
