Halloween Rockit™ apple chocolate spiders

Get into the spirit of Halloween with these deliciously scary chocolate spiders! 

INGREDIENTS  

  • 1 tube of Rockit apples (5 apples per tube)
  • 300g of chocolate 
  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil (if needed to thin the chocolate for dipping)
  • Candy eyes or other small round candies
  • 15 black pipe cleaners
  • 5 small go-to containers or small bowls (The containers are optional but they do help to stabilize the spiders).

METHODS

  1. Place the chocolate in a microwave safe bowl and microwave in 20 second increments until melted, taking care to stir well between each increment. Keep a close eye on the chocolate and don't let it overcook!
  2. Add coconut oil, if needed, and mix well until melted and blended into the chocolate. The chocolate should be glossy and smooth.
  3. Holding Rockit™ apples by the stem, dip them until completely submerged in the chocolate.
  4. Remove from chocolate and place on parchment or baking paper and allow the chocolate to start setting.
  5. Once the chocolate has started to set, add the eyes. NOTE: If you add the eyes too early they may slip off, add them too late and they may have trouble sticking.
  6. Set aside and allow chocolate to firm completely. You can refrigerate the apples to speed up the process.
  7. While the apples are setting, take 3 pipe cleaners and wrap one once or twice around the middle of the other two. Shape the pipe cleaners into spider legs. Repeat 4 more times, until you have 5 sets of spider legs.
  8. Place the legs in the little containers or directly on a plate or platter if you aren’t using containers. 
  9. When the chocolate apples are set, place them on top of the legs and adjust to maximize the scary effect!
