Have your say
- 340g packet chocolate cake mix
- 100g dark chocolate
- 30g butter
- 4 licorice straps
- 24 red smarties
- grated chocolate, to sprinkle
Preheat the oven to the temperature recommended on the cake-mix packet. Grease 24 shallow patty pans. Make the cake mix according to the directions on the packet. Fill each patty cup two-thirds full with cake mixture. Bake for 10–15 minutes, or until cooked. Cool on a wire rack. Place a baking tray under the rack.
Combine the chocolate and butter in a small heatproof bowl set over a saucepan of simmering water until the chocolate and butter have melted and the mixture is smooth. Remove from the heat and mix well.
Spoon the chocolate over the cakes, ensuring that each cake is completely covered. Allow the chocolate to set.
Cut the licorice straps into thin lengths 3cm long. Attach eight of these lengths to each cake as spiders' legs. Cut the smarties in half and place on the spiders for the eyes. Sprinkle the cakes with grated chocolate to make furry bodies.
