Licorice and Chocolate Spider Webs

Zoulah gives a warm witchie welcome to her Bewitchen Kitchen! 

Zoulah asks what self respecting witch would eat her blueberry pomegranate ice cream without a spider web?  The webs are fun and easy for all to make.  Even Zoulah's pet spider Leggs approves of these webs.  Zoulah spied the idea from a 2000 Martha Stewart magazine.

Instructions for Making Licorice Spider Webs

Licorice Laces
Chocolate -- Zoulah used milk chocolate chips

On a piece of waxed paper make an X with two long strands of licorice and fill in the web with shorter pieces  that resemble an asterisk. 

Zoulah says that the only tricky part is the licorice which likes to curl.  You can try to straighten it by stretching it a little bit.

 Pour melted chocolate into a pastry bag, or a Ziploc bag with a small hole snipped in the corner.  Pipe a large chocolate dot in the center of web uniting all the licorice pieces.  Then draw concentric chocolate circles around center.  Let stand an hour and then peel off parchment paper and place on ice cream.

Zoulah thanks you with a big witchie hug for dropping by her Bewitchen Kitchen at Red Couch Recipes.

I can think of a desk or two that might be improved by the hiding of a licorice and chocolate spider web sometime this week!

Yum! I'll bet kids love this. I had my nephews over Saturday night and we had an ice cream sundae bar. I wish I'd seen this post before. La
