    Frost brownie with vanilla frosting. Place chocolate chips in small resealable food-storage plastic bag. Place in bowl of very hot water; let stand until chips are melted. Cut off tiny corner of bag. To make spiderweb, pipe melted chocolate on frosting in spiral pattern, starting at centre and keeping lines about 3/4 inch apart. Using toothpick or knife, draw lines outward through frosting, starting at centre of brownie.

Expert Tips

  • Tip 1
    Ingredient Substitution: A gummy spider, available at candy shops in time for Halloween, is a good substitution for the gumdrop spider.
  • Tip 2
    Microwave Option: To melt the chocolate chips for the web design, place them in a small microwave-safe container. Microwave on HIGH for 30 seconds to 1 1/2 minutes, stirring once during cooking.
