Serves : 4
Preparation Time: 5 minutes
Cooking Time: 5 minutes
- 120g dark chocolate, finely chopped
- 4 large white marshmallows
- 32 small white marshmallows
- 600ml semi skimmed milk
- 2 tbsp caster sugar
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
Place 20g of chocolate into a small bowl and microwave in 30 second bursts until melted. Stir well until smooth then decant into a piping bag.
Place one large marshmallow onto a plate.
Place a dot of melted chocolate onto the end of 8 smaller marshmallows, and place around the outside of the large marshmallow. You want 8 on each one to make 4 spider shapes.
Draw a face on the top of the large marshmallows and leave to set.
Pour the milk into a saucepan, add the sugar and vanilla extract and bring to the boil.
Add the remaining chopped chocolate and whisk until smooth, then remove from the heat.
Place the spider mallow into a wide mug or paper cup, and pour the hot chocolate in, making sure it goes to the side of the spider – the spider will spin round as you pour it in.
Serve straightaway, or leave the marshmallow to melt.
