Halloween Spider Chocolate Truffles are a fun, super scrumptious choice for a spooky, fancy Halloween dessert! They're adorable, delicious, and so rich and creamy that you will keep going back for more spooky spiders.
Pour the hot cream over the 4-ounces of chocolate and let sit for 4 minutes. Use a spoon to stir to blend the cream and chocolate together. This mixture is called Ganache.
Remove the Ganache from the refrigerator and, using a 1¼ inch cookie scoop, scoop out about 1 dozen truffles, placing them on the parchment-covered baking sheets. Now place the shaped truffles in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.
Using a fork, carefully dip each truffle into the melted chocolate to coat it evenly. That done, place it on the other parchment-covered baking sheet. You can use a small knife to help you remove the dipped truffle from the fork. As soon as each truffle is dipped, use the white chocolate to "draw" a spiral line going around and around the truffle. Then, starting from the top center of the truffle, use a toothpick to "draw" lines down the sides of the truffle. This must be done when both chocolates are wet! That is, right after the truffle has been dipped! The truffles will set at room temperature. Place a tiny red candy on top of each truffle, and use the red chocolate to "draw" the top part of the spider's body and four legs on each side.
Once set, you can put each truffle into a cute paper cup!
