Death By Chocolate

Death By Chocolate

Just in time for Halloween…
I’ve made a creepy chocolately dessert that’s really three-in-one.

I made these creepy zombie hands in a mold that I found on Amazon. They are so MUCH FUN. The graveyard is actually a big flat brownie that I made with OXO’s 9×13 Pro Cake Pan. I am so in love with this pan. It feels like silk, but it’s so durable. They generously sent me the pan, a cool brownie plastic brownie spatula and a baker’s dusting wand, which is my latest favorite toy.
Death By ChocolateHow stinkin’ cute are these.

The chocolate I used for both coating the spiders and making the hands is Chocoley – it’s only the most exquisite chocolate in the world. I’m not exaggerating. It’s seriously the best. It melts better than any other chocolate you could buy and it tastes amazing.

I’ve never been a dark chocolate fan, but theirs is so good I have to hide it from my family.
The spiders are cake balls – very easy to make. The hands are simple as well, just pour the melted chocolate into the molds. The “blood” is white chocolate from Chocoley with red food coloring.

Here’s your printable!
