    Milk chocolate is classically made from dark chocolate of low cocoa solid content and a higher…

  • 113g pack liquorice Catherine wheels (we used Barratts)
  • 2 x 154g packs Oreo cookies
  • white and black icing pens


  1. Melt the chocolate in a heatproof bowl over a pan of barely simmering water. Once melted, turn off the heat and leave the chocolate in the bowl to keep warm while you assemble the spiders.

  2. Unroll some of the liquorice wheels and cut into 2-3cm lengths to use as the Chocolate spiders’ legs.

  3. Splodge a small tsp of chocolate onto half of the cookies. Arrange eight liquorice legs on top, then sandwich with another cookie. Spread some more chocolate on top of the second cookie to cover, then put somewhere cool to set.

  4. Use the icing pens to add eyes, by first blobbing two big dots of white icing on each, topped with two smaller dots of black icing.

These are so easy for the kids to make, just gave them the melted chocolate, showed them how to do one & left them to it. They love eating them too!

These went down a storm with the tinies at Hallowe'en, and some of the not-so-tinies, to be honest. I simplified the eyes by just using white sugar balls instead of icing, which saved me and my lack of dexterity with the icing bag quite a lot of angst. Also, there was a Hallowe'en special Oreo over here with orange filling which worked well. Favourite bit of the night was when one five year old said helpfully "I could just eat the last spider for you, if you like".

Brilliant and very easy to do, if not a bit messy.

Made these last night with my colony of Beaver Scouts and they loved them. Really easy as the only cooking was melting chocolate in the microwave. Used jelly beans for the eyes instead of piping and they had red legs as I could only find strawberry laces. Also a few had smiley mouths.

Great fun! I adapted the recipe and used one cookie per spider, splitting the biscuit and adding chocolate to the filling. I used white chocolate buttons and dark chocolate chips for the eyes which made them googly and rather comical. I made 10 with approx 100gms of chocolate.
