Raw Chocolate Spider Bites

It’s been difficult keeping up in my Halloween kitchen lately.

There are various reasons why but the only one that is actually interesting is because of spiders. That’s not a typo either–my life has actually been infested with spiders. Not just any kind of spiders though, in fact, they aren’t actual tangible ones. I have been bitten by a dozen imaginary spiders. Can I be any more ambiguous?

No, these spiders are more symbolic and they are full of love venom, if you catch my drift. Yes friends, it is true, I have been bitten by love spiders {kinda like what cupid is for Valentine’s Day; these spiders are for Halloween}… So as a tribute I have made a batch of these raw chocolate Spider Bites. Perfect for that extra touch needed on Hallow’s Eve.

  10. Reblogged this on deliciouscravings.

  11. Well, colour me impressed 😉 These are adorable! I bet they required a lot of patience, something I don’t have a ton of haha

    • You know, they really aren’t too difficult to make Gabby. However, when you find yourself drifting off into la-la land, you will need some patience on your slow progression in the kitchen :)

  12. Spiders are my biggest fear, so you’ll forgive me if I don’t say they are cute! I will, however, say that the ingredients look yummy. I’d make this, but I just couldn’t form them into that shape. LOL!

  13. bitten are we..:) those spideys are super cute.. can we get more details please 😉

  14. Ah love spiders… The best kind. As long as they don’t wrap you up and leave you in a web somewhere… o.O Unless it was a chocolate web. Then that would be OK.

  15. Well congratulations on being ‘bitten by love’! These chocolate spider bites sound like the perfect way to celebrate, or just to spookify a raw Halloween party. Nom nom nom!

  16. Is this a cryptic hidden message, garnished with chocolate JOY that you are indulging in a bit of the lovey-dovey stuff?!?! Wheeeeeee! I sure do hope so! These are mega COOL Cara, but it’s way cooler that you’ve got some lurrrrrve in your life 😉

  17. So you’re saying you’re in love….?!! Eeeeeeee! 😉

  18. These are adorable! but I think there should be more love bug details!

  19. How adorably cute and creative and WELCOME BACK darn it.

  20. Yum! If you chill these after you make the legs, will the legs hardened and stay a part of the spider?

    • Stacy, definitely give it a shot. Place it on a piece of wax paper and chill, then use a metal spatula to get it off. I can foresee that they will be very delicate and might not all stay intact but it is definitely worth trying. Let me know if it works! xo

  21. Ahhh, your halloween posts are so making me want to make a big halloween party just to have an occasion, where I can try your recipes ;pp

  22. So cute! And, congratulations on being bitten by the love bug. :)
