Chocolate Spiderweb Lollipops

24 Oct

Halloween is coming up fast.  It seriously feels like October just flew by.  I can’t wait for trick-or-treating and seeing all the decorations.  I love seeing all the kids in their costumes.  The costumes have totally changed since I was a kid.  Now they are almost all store bought.  Back in my day our costumes were more imagination made.

I think I was a punk rocker like 4 years in a row.  I wore a ripped t-shirt, teased the heck outta my hair and wore an enormous amount of make-up.  Ghosts were made from sheets and Dracula was just a black cape and some face paint.  Now the costumes light up, make noise and glow in the dark.

I wanted to make something cute, easy and kid friendly.  My whole family loved these and they took a bit of time but most of it was just waiting for them to harden.  They were just so cute!!

Chocolate Spideweb Pops

Prep Time: 40 minutes

Total Time: 40 minutes

Ingredients

  • 2 c milk chocolate chips (about 1 1/4 bags)
  • 3/4 c white chocolate chips
  • 2 1/2 inch circle
  • 10 lollipop sticks
  • toothpicks

Instructions

  1. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper and draw 10 dark circles making sure there is enough room below for the sticks to fit. Flip over the parchment paper so the pencil/ink doesn't transfer to you pops.
  2. In a medium bowl melt chocolate chips on 50% power stirring every 30 seconds. Once melted pour into a squeeze bottle (or you could use a ziploc bag with the tip cut off)
  3. Repeat with the white chocolate chips.
  4. Starting from the outside fill in your circle then smooth out with a small offset spatula or knife. You want your chocolate about 1/2 an inch thick.
  5. Working 2 circles at a time, squeeze a drop of white in the middle of your circle, then a circle around that and a large one around that.
  6. Take a toothpick and starting in the center lightly drag your toothpick outwards through the chocolate. Repeat 5-6 times.
  7. Repeat until all the webs are done.
  8. Put in the fridge and let harden, about 10-15 minutes. You should be able to very easily peel the chocolate off the parchment. Flip all of the circles over so the web is face down.
  9. Cover the circle with a layer of chocolate and attach your stick. If you find your chocolate is cooling down you can set squeeze bottle in cup with hot water to remelt. Just make sure that NO water comes in contact with your chocolate.
  10. Completely cover with chocolate and smooth out. You shouldn't be able to tell through the chocolate where the stick is.
  11. Repeat creating the web affect with the white chocolate. Set aside harden and then they are all done.
