Chocolaty Cobweb Brownies




I've seen this technique used before with cupcakes, so I decided to make a brownie version for a Halloween party this year.

It's super easy and the results always turn out great!

Step 1: Ingredients & Supplies

To make these chocolaty cobweb brownies, you'll need:

  • Brownies
  • Chocolate chips (I used semi-sweet)
  • White chocolate chips
  • M&Ms (I used peanut M&Ms)

The supplies you'll need are:

  • Circle cookie cutters or a muffin pan
  • Toothpicks
  • Piping bag (or a Ziplock bag that you cut the corner out of)
  • Wax paper

Step 2: Brownie Batter & Bake

Mix up the brownie batter and bake. I used two different mixes (Chocolate Supreme & Dark Chocolate) and added walnut pieces to one of them.

You can see that I also put some brownie batter into a muffin pan. I did this so that they'd be in a circular shape and still have the edges (for those people who insist on brownie edges!). Like the purchasers of this pan.

Step 3: Cutting With Cookie Cutters

Choose two differently sized circular cookie cutters and punch out as many brownies as you can. You can see the different colors of the brownies, because I used two different mixes.

Feel free to snack on the trimmings! Mmmm...

Step 4: Melt & Pour Chocolate

Melt some of the chocolate chips and spoon it onto the brownie circles. Use the spoon to spread it into a thin layer.

Step 5: Pipe Rings of White Chocolate

Melt some of the white chocolate chips and fill a piping bag. First, pipe a dot in the center of the brownie circle. Then, pipe rings around the center.

For my brownies, I piped either two or three rings depending on the size of the brownie.

Step 6: Toothpick Time

Using a toothpick, position it in the center of the brownie and slowly move it outwards. Do this about six times evenly spaced around the brownie. Now you have a lovely spider web!

Step 7: Keep Going!

Use the same technique for all of the brownies. Just add more rings for the larger brownies.

Step 8: Spiders

I ended up with some extra melted white chocolate, so I used M&Ms to make spiders. Roll out a small piece of wax paper. Pipe a dot of the white chocolate and add three legs on each side. Then, place a M&M in the center. Push it down a little so that it sinks into the white chocolate. Let them cool.

Once the spiders have cooled, peel them away from the wax paper.

Step 9: Enjoy!

Arrange the spiders on the spider webs. I chose to place some in the center and some to the side. It's best to melt a little more white chocolate and place a drop where you want to put the spider. Press down a little so that the spider sinks into the melted white chocolate. This acts to keep it glued in place.

Enjoy and Happy Halloween!
