Halloween Recipes 2020


  • 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


  1. 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.

  2. Place one large marshmallow onto a plate.

  3. 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.

  4. Draw a face on the top of the large marshmallows and leave to set.

  5. Pour the milk into a saucepan, add the sugar and vanilla extract and bring to the boil.

  6. Add the remaining chopped chocolate and whisk until smooth, then remove from the heat.

  7. 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.

  8. Serve straightaway, or leave the marshmallow to melt.
