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.

Raw Chocolate Spider Bites Recipe

{Raw Vegan} Gluten, egg, and dairy-free

Makes a boatload of Bite-sized Spiders (which means I don’t know the exact number)

INGREDIENTS:

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Follow recipe for Fudgy Brownies.
  2. Shape spiders by forming into 2 balls (one ball the size of a quarter; the other 1/3 its size)
  3. “Glue” head of spider onto the body with a dab of melted raw chocolate.
  4. Coat with raw chocolate until completely covered.
  5. Allow to chill and set in fridge.
  6. Place on place and create spider legs with raw chocolate (placed in a ziploc bag with a tiny hole cut out in the corner).

  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!

    October 24, 2012
    • I say just make them into the Fudgy Brownies and you will be in heaven, sans spiders 🙂

    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.

    October 24, 2012
    • You are giving me ideas…ha. Wait a minute, that sounded perverted.

      October 25, 2012
  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!

    October 24, 2012

    October 24, 2012
    • You are a great decoder, Lou. That’s all I’m saying for now 🙂

      October 25, 2012

    How adorably cute and creative and WELCOME BACK darn it.

    October 24, 2012
    • Aw shucks, Laurel. Thank you, gosh darn it 🙂 I’m back to the land of the living…

      October 25, 2012
  20. Yum! If you chill these after you make the legs, will the legs hardened and stay a part of the spider?

    October 24, 2012
    • 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

      October 25, 2012
  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

    October 24, 2012
