Halloween Spiderweb Cupcakes Recipe
- 6-8 Prepared Chocolate Cupcakes, unfrosted
- 1 Can Chocolate Frosting
- Wilton White Candy Melts
- Wilton Black Candy Melts
- 1 pkg. Plain M&M’s, individual size
- 1 pkg. Peanut M&M’s, individual size

Frost cupcakes with the chocolate frosting.
Melt white chocolate per package directions and put in a small plastic bag for piping. On a parchment lined baking sheet, pipe spider webs with the white chocolate, a bit larger than the cupcake tops. Let dry.
Melt the black chocolate per package directions and put in a small plastic bag for piping. On a parchment lined baking sheet, pipe small spiders. I started with a dime sized dot of chocolate, add 4 legs on each side. Sprinkle the black sugar over the spiders and place an M&M on the chocolate dot. Let dry.
After the chocolate is completely dry, peel off the paper. Set a web on each cupcake, and set a spider on top of each web. Fun and delicious Halloween treat!
