These are made from chocolate plastic, an ingenious product with a terrible name. It’s made from only 2 ingredients, chocolate and corn syrup, but has an almost fondant-like texture and is good for sculpting things and covering cakes. I formed the bodies out of chocolate plastic, then made little legs from chocolate candy coating. They were the perfect touch to my spooky sweets.
They look great on the spiderweb cupcakes from the same page!
