I thought I would add a Halloween twist to one of my favorite cocktails…the Chocolate Martini! I am hosting a Halloween cocktail party and thought these Chocolate Spider Web Martinis would be a lot of fun to serve! See how I made the white chocolate spider webs and spiders below! They turned out so cute! At the bottom of the post, there is a “kid” friendly chocolate milk version! Don’t want the kids to miss out on any party fun!
Spider & Spider Web Supplies: Black Candy Melts | White Candy Melts | Black M&M’s
| Piping or Plastic Bag | No. 3 and 4 Piping Tips | Non-stick Foil | Tooth Picks
If you are using icing tips, I recommend using the No. 3 for the spiders and the No. 5 for the spider webs.
Spiders: On the non-stick foil, I created an X shape. Then filled in the additional four legs leaving two lager spaces between four of the legs (more bug like). While the chocolate is still hot, place the blank side of the M&M in place. Let them harden.
Spider Web: Because I wanted the spider webs to sit down in my glasses, I used a dinner knife to score and traced the size of the rim of my glassware. That way I could make my webs a consistent size and was sure they would fit inside the glass. Using my No. 5 tip, I piped out a basic spider web shape. As you can see, they weren’t perfect! Then I used an appetizer style toothpick to drag through the long spindles of the web. I did not drag through the round connecting chocolate.
For quick hardening of the chocolate, place them in the freezer for 5- 10 minutes. When they come out they are easy to remove from the foil. I usually pull the foil down and off of the chocolate (spiders too) instead of trying to lift the chocolate off…more breaking that way.
Attach the spiders to the webs with a dot of warm chocolate. Once they are hard, they can be stored in an airtight container, layered between wax paper or parchment paper. They need to stay dry and will be ready for your party!
It’s nice to get a little chocolate treat when you’re done with the drink!
Chocolate Martini Ingredients: 1 1/4 oz Bailey’s Irish cream liqueur | 1 oz vodka | 1/4 oz Godiva chocolate liqueur
I thought these were too cute not share with the kids. After all…they like a good Halloween treat too! Follow the same instructions and serve with Chocolate Milk!
Hope your day is creative!
Linking to these wonderful parties!
