Servings 8


  • 1 prepared Pumpkin Chocolate Tart
  • 2 ounces best-quality semisweet or bittersweet chocolate


  • Set a heatproof bowl, or the top of a double boiler, over a pan of barely simmering water. Melt chocolate in bowl, stirring occasionally; remove from heat.
  • Place melted chocolate in a resealable bag with a corner cut off or in a disposable pastry bag with small circular tip (such as a #2 tip).
  • To make the web, pipe the long lines across the entire tart, like you would slice a pizza. Then pipe the curved lines to connect the long lines.
  • To make a spider, pipe a quarter sized circle of chocolate and then pipe 4 legs on each side of body.
  • Allow the chocolate to cool and set, then refrigerate tart until ready to serve.
