Scary Berry Spiders


  • 18 large California Giant strawberries
  • 1 ounce marzipan
  • 6 ounces Scharffen Berger 62% Semisweet Chocolate (2 bars)
  • 9 black licorice laces
  • 3 tablespoons Scharffen Berger Sweetened Natural Cocoa Powder


      • Wash and dry berries thoroughly. Set aside.
      • Melt chocolate in a heat proof bowl over a small saucepan with about an inch of simmering water.
      • Cut the licorice laces into 1½ inch pieces. You will need 8 for each berry. Set aside.
      • Use a chopstick or similar tool to poke four holes along each side of the berry. Insert a piece of licorice lace into each hole.
      • Place the berry on parchment paper and pour melted chocolate over the top. Be sure to cover the tops of the legs. Allow to cool/harden completely.
      • Dust the back of the spider with sweetened cocoa powder and a fine mesh strainer.
      • Break off two small pieces of marzipan and roll into two balls between your palms. Press these on to the chocolate on the front of the berry to create eyes.
